Converting a Glock 21 to .460 Rowland article.

New article of mine up on Guns.com that I thought I'd share: http://www.guns.com/converting-a-glo...and-10990.html

As it says in the article (with other links), I'm a big fan of the .460 Rowland cartridge, having become something of a convert after we first tested it for BBTI. It's one hell of a cartridge and the fact that you can basically drop it into several extant handguns easily (as well as use the same reloading equipment you use for .45 ACP) makes it very appealing, and if I were to carry a full-sized .45 I'd shift over to the .460.

Anyway, check it out.

Jim

I'm not that familiar with the .460 Rowland cartridge... but that looks AWESOME! Nice article.
