Put a deposit on the XVR today

My LGS had 460XVR in when I stopped to pick up my Steyr. As soon as my NJ pistol permit comes in its mine.
I hope the NJ State police get moving and get my permit approved ASAP. I am thrilled to get the chance to own the (IMO) pinnacle of revolvers, or handguns for that mater.
275 gr bullet at 2750 fps
Its near rifle performance (some cases beyond)from a hand held package.

I'd be happy with 1750.

Correction- I meant 275gr at 1750 not 2750.
200gr at 2300.

I wonder if anyone will come out with a lever gun in this cartridge. Would be awsome to have a SS lever gun to match the revolver.

I googled and couldnt find any. I wonder if a rifle in similar size cartridge could be machined to run the 460.
