While the 200-grain loads are designed for speed, the 460 can also be loaded for power. Cor-Bon (which developed both the S&W 500 and the 460XVR) provides a 275-grain Barnes X load at 1,750 fps, a 325-grain Bonded Core Soft Point (BCSP) at 1,650 fps, and a 395 hard-cast FP load at 1,525 fps. The 200-grain loads are best suited for deer-size game, but the 275-grain slug would be an excellent choice for boar or black bear. The latter two loads should handle anything one would sanely hunt with a handgun. For reduced recoil during practice sessions, the 460 will also shoot the tamer .454 Casull and the .45 Long Colt in the same manner that a .357 Magnum will shoot .38 Special loads.
