I put together a similar shotgun a while back. The stock isn't the most comfortable thing in the world, but the gun is so heavy, recoil is fairly light.

That's why Ruger needs to build one. I can't imagine it would take too much work to take a Blackhawk or Redhawk and scale it up. You know people would buy them. I would for sure. Though they would probably have to work out a bit of a shield for it so your arm doesn't get fried.

If Smith & Wesson can make that godawful .500 Magnum that serves no loving sane purpose, a revolver shotgun should be easy to make and market.

As for the issue of cylinder leakage, I imagine a gap closing system like the Nagant revolver might solve the problem.

Yeah, those .500 are everywhere, I love watching idiots who bought them trying to pawn them off on anyone who will take one at the gun shows. I've been told its pretty similar to the great .44 mag sell off that occurred after every new Dirty Harry movie. Except that .44 mag is a great round, and .500 is pointless.

But like you say, if those sell, why not revolver shotguns? Even without having to copy a Nagant if they just make the tolerances closer then usual and have a bit of a shield there that would do the trick. Hell, start off with a line of .44 mag, .454, or .460 revolver carbines and then make shotguns later. If guns like the LCR can sell for carry over perfectly functional automatics there is obviously a market for revolvers.

What's so bad about .500? Is it just so pointlessly huge or is there another detriment I'm not seeing?

From what I've seen, it breaks down like this:
S&W .500s will shoot themselves apart over time, and it happens rather early on in the gun's lifetime. Not only that, .500 is loving expensive as hell.

S&W 460s are better, though, because of the gain twist rifling, which makes the .460s rounds really accurate. .460 is nearly as expensive as .500 though.

The advantage of the .460, though, is that it can shoot 45LC, 454 Casull, and .460, so you could plink with .45LC if you wanted.

Of course, really, the only point is to be able to take any game anywhere with a revolver. They're really heavy, but definitely fill the niche for having either a hunting pistol or a "gently caress off huge" gun.

So are the 460s reliable though, or do they also shoot themselves to pieces?

My experience with them is limited to the one my cousin bought for deer hunting, last I spoke with him it was holding up nicely.

One thing to note about them though is that while you can shoot .45LC and .454 Casull out of them, the sites change for each of the rounds. When I try to think about it my head hurts, but when I shot .45lc, then .454, then .460, the .45LC missed the paper completely (went over) the .454 was high on the paper, and the .460 was as spot on. If anyone can tell me why it does that I would appreciate it, I can say that everyone who shot those 3 shots experienced the same thing.

Because of a couple things...

a) a slower round will have more drop over the same distance
b) are all those projectiles EXACTLY the same diameter? If not, they'll engage the rifling differently
c) projectiles traveling at different speeds will stabilize differently in the same rifling, even if they DO engage evenly

Dwell time in the barrel. The slower rounds spend more time in the barrel, which has more time to lift itself up under recoil. If the exterior ballistics were the dominating factor (as they might be, given sufficient range to offset the barrel lift), then the slower rounds would hit lower on the target.

Ok now that's interesting, you are saying that because the bullets travel slower down the barrel that there is more muzzle rise due to my inability to hold perfectly on target accounts for that. Makes sense.

In terms of the bullet diameter the .454 and .460 should both be .452, so I can see that accounting for the difference in the .45LC, but not the other 2. All 3 cartridges we were shooting were Hornady too, so I would assume they were to spec in terms of diameter.

I assumed that over distance the rounds would behave differently, but since I was only shooting at 30ft I didn't think that would be a factor.

.45 Colt, .454 Casull, and .460 XVR should all use .454" bullets. .45 ACP uses .452.
