Probably because it wasn't offered as a 460 factory round??

My old man use to be a good shot but age fought up with him and he decided to do something about it. About a month ago he bought a ruger American in 450 and I help him sight it in. Well, yesterday evening the deer came out right on time 450 pm, and he took a 5 point (fused tine) at 180 yards. Good hit, deer dropped. He put everything away got out of the blind, got on the side by side and drove over to see his first kill with the rifle. Only, it wasn’t there. Couldn’t find it for about 25 minutes. Finally came back with a good flashlight and found the blood trail and found the deer had run about 50 yards. No exit wound. He shot the 250 grain ftx. I warned him it would happen but the inside of the chest cavity was mush so it did it’s job. I would love to see what a 300 grain Speer gold dot would do. I bet it would expand nicely and hold together.
