I was just checking out Starline Brass and they have this caliber listed as a new addition. Has anyone seen this yet?

Thanks Mac,
That covers just about all the bases.
It looks like they have built a .400 CorBon with more balls. One very interesting note is that this is practically a twin of the .464 Rowland cartridge, yet it wasn't in the comparison list. Hmmm.

Pack Rat,

.460 Rowland is a .451" bullet, .40 Super is a necked .45 ACP case to accept a .40" bullet. Apples and oranges...

.45 Super... Fat and FAST...

Desert Dog you are correct.
The 464 Rowland is a .460 cased necked to .40 cal. More like lemons and limes.
