Chris Cheng’s Book Vs S&W .460 XVR

Chris Cheng take a look at the S&W .460 XVR revolver. It has a 12″ barrel and if an optic is mounted it is recommended to be zeroed at 200 yards.

Chris tests the .460 XVR against a cantaloupe and a watermelon before he tests it against a stack of hard bound copies of his book “Shoot To Win”.

I was surprised how much damage the round did to the books.

    Nobody is holding the book in front of their chest?… Oh, that’s a different channel.

    Yeah thanks, I’m good.

    I can see the next YouTube ‘star’ holding 2 of these books in front of his chest and have his girlfriend fire the .460 in pursuit of 500,000 clicks.

      No, it’s a Smith&Wesson. Savage doesn’t make revolvers yet.

          Amen, brother, we shall bask in the light of the Savage!

    Best possible use of those books short of a doorstop.

    Having put a couple hundred rounds through mine, I’m not surprised by how much it can penetrate. I’d use it for bear. In a parked car. Hiding behind a brick wall.

  • DangerousClown

    Oh, and good job, Nicholas. You almost made it one sentence in without blowing it. Do you guys even read what you wrote before it gets published?

  • mazkact

    I always took it for granted that the Savage revolver was tied to The Savage Arms Company. In hindsight Arthur Savage(born 1857) would have been too young when the revolver came out to have had anything to do with it.Good info, now I know better.

    Why destroy more than half a dozen of his books? Are they worthless?

    • throwedoff

      Only a quarter dozen destroyed unless he did a retake.

    • Al Shartpants

      It is called smart (and cheap) marketing. I never heard of his book before watching this.

  • uisconfruzed

    EGADS that’s a revolver only a mother could love. I’ll stick with an Anaconda.
    @ 1:00, “The longer barrel helps it retain it’s velocity”?? No
    Clamp on front sight? Nope, that can’t be easily knocked off point.

    I still find a handgun rather improbable for shooting anything at 200 yards.

    I’m sure the revolver and cartridge under discussion can do such things; I doubt many shooters can. Other than being ‘first on the block’, a light rifle would probably be superior for most 200 yard purposes.

    Other than that, I’m sure the arm and the video are most impressive.

  • Al Shartpants

    When is S&W or an aftermarket going to produce a man-sized grip for it? I know there are plenty of grips that will fit it but it would be nice to have a grip similar to the one it comes on it, only bigger so that someone with big hands can get more purchase.
