I didn't know about this round till just now. Ran across it while browsing the Buffalo Bore website. Apparently, it's a stouter .45 round made with stronger brass. A few .45ACP guns can handle it right out of the box.

However, use it with caution, as many guns need to first be modified with a stronger recoil spring, buffer, firing pin, etc...

This round should obliterate the jokes like the cartoon illustration where the .45 round falls short of its target. :)

Dean Grennell developed it back in the late 80's.

If I recall he used shortened .451 Detonics brass.

You'd like the .460 Rowland too if you like the 45 Super.

I agree. Check out the .460. Also, check out the .50 GI.

Just found out that .460 kits are made for Para Ordnance P-14's by Clark Custom Guns. But read their Q&A section carefully, they make mention of getting stronger magazine springs to improve feeding reliability.

Wow, 15 rounds of 44 magnum equivalents in a 5" 1911 would make for a sweet hunting gun, or bear defense gun, or two-legged defense gun, or fun plinker... :D
