    460 S&W/45 Raptor....

    That's it . I almost have it in hand , a "pistol cartridge carbine" that fits a Mauser bolt face holds 5 and can be loaded from ACP or Schofield well into lever gun mid range 45-70 loads . The Raptor uses direct exchange data from the 460 . That means that I can shoot some really fast 180-200 gr bullets and some seriously heavy heavy weights . Any game is fair game .

    I have several moulds for the 452 bore RB , 45-200, 454424 , 452-255 , 457-340 and a paperable 431421 at .448 so I have the low end go fast covered and a couple of satisfactory hunting bullets .
    What about a long range bullet ? Is there an under 500 gr bullet shaped like the Money or various 535s ? Maybe a PP that will size to .448 ?

    Was looking into this a year or so ago and things got busy... so what is the best upper/combo out there at the moment? I remember there was a website that had a lot of the 460 raptor stuff for sale but I couldnt find anything else anywhere else. Still the same?
    Looking for Ideal molds 419181 (44 Evans Long) and 375167 (38-72)
    "Joined Dates" are deceiving if you factor-in "lurk" dates.
