Ring of Fire: Smith & Wesson .460 Magnum

I shoot a fair number of guns and while it’s generally fun, rarely do I see something entertaining/unique that makes me go “wow.” I’m sure some of you have seen rings of fire shoot out of guns before but it was something else to see it in person.

I took some great video of a shooter who had a Smith & Wesson .460 Magnum with a short 3″ barrel. It was taken with my iPhone 6 using the slow motion feature and the quality is pretty impressive. The shooter was using Hornady 200 grain FTX .460 S&W ammo.

    For fun I'd like to know what powder for the 44 mag produces the most flash.
    I'm using Alliant 2400, performance, but not much flash.
