    But for the sheer fun of putting big holes through heavy things!

    About the .460 Rowland Cartridge | .460 Rowland

    I remember carousing the pages of Brownells' catalog about fifteen years ago, and seeing the .460 Rowland conversion available for a 1911. I had a couple of 1911's at the time, but they weren't of the manufacturers on the recommended list. The frames were not hardened, and would eventually fail with this round.

    I sold my 1911's a few years ago and went with a Glock21, never looking back (well, maybe for a Sig 1911). I just came across the website for the .460 Rowland, and they have kits for the Glock21.

    Can you imagine .44 Magnum power with a standard magazine capacity of 12 rounds?


    Maybe after I'm out of college I can afford to get a kit and a bag of empty casings.

    I wonder if anyone has ever tried to make a subsonic round with a 300gr bullet: Hornady Manufacturing Company :: Bullets :: Handgun :: Choose by Caliber :: .452 45 CAL :: 45 Cal .452 300 gr XTP® Mag

    If the wife didn't like her G21 so much I would be all over this. Guess I will have to stay with my G20.

    According to the grapevine (to be released during the 2014 SHOT show) the new Glock 41 is going to be a long slide version of the G21. If that's true, then I WANT. I'll wait for the new longslide .45 and ask Mr Rowland if he'll make an extended, ported barrel for it. 6" Glock 41 in .460 Rowland... Oh yes...

    With one of those magazines attached, they should just call it "The Magnum Machine"
