Okay, I give up. What's a .460 Rowland?

Oh my. That's serious stuff.

1340 fps with 230 gr bullet out of a 5 in pipe?!! Gaaagg!

There weren't many details about case dimensions. How long is the sucker? based on a .45 ACP? Made from .30-'06 cases? Whuuut? Has it been out long enough to be in any new reloading books?

According to some discussion I saw on ShootersTalk, it is a semi-clone of the .45 Super case but a little longer so it won't chamber in a standard .45 Auto. I doubt that you'll see it in any main stream reloading handbooks.
