Picked up a 460 XVR and in the box was this 'tool'. Asked the former owner (have 80 rounds thru it!) what it was and he said 'No clue, was in the box when I got it.' (He bought it brand new)

Anyone know what it's for!?

Doesn't fit thru the muzzle brakes, thought it might been a 'prybar' for them if they where stuck, but no-go.

Interesting . . . my 460V didn’t come with one of those. The XVR has a longer barrel, so is that why your gun has that tool? I can’t imagine what the barrel’s length would have to do with extracting spent casings from the cylinder. What say you???

A longer barrel will build more pressure since the bullet spends more time traveling down it before exiting and the pressure relieves. Hence why your five incher makes a bigger fireball too, the charge is still not fully burnt when the bullet exists.

Hum...This just might explain why my 629 with the 8 3/8's barrel does the same thing with full house loads.
