Its a blast. The 454 flattened out the can where the 460 blew it to pieces. When i get time i am going to do something similar and start with a 25 acp and go up to the 460.

Water Melons are cool. A 50AE makes a very good watermelon salad.

Not everyday you get a videographic anecdote of a round making a .44mag look like a pop gun, but the .454Casull sure does it!

No wait....

Definitely paints the picture of what that energy gap means - considering that the .44mag is generally considered to be the maximum potentially manageable round for most shooters.

Yes they do. Watermelons are a hoot to shot with large caliber guns.
