    hands down, no problem. Heavier, larger bullet, higher velocity, cheaper, etc.

    Okay

    Does Glock chamber for it?

    Can I find it at Wal-mart(heck, even my local gun store)?

    Man, and I don't even have a 10mm to get jealous about.

    Cheaper?

    Where are the 15 round magazines for it?

    Name 5 gun manufacturers that chamber guns for it.

    Compare the amount of loading data available for 10mm versus .460 rowland.

    I've never seen a .460 cartridge for sale in real life.

    Lol. They are both good cartridges. :)

    So She LIED to me!

    :rolleyes: "Size really does matter"
    Well I for one am all for "FAT" bullets. However the .460 Roland idea isn't new. Lets see we have seen the .451 Detonics Magnum, .45 Win Mag and even the .45 Super.
    If you handload(and what truely serious shooter doesn't) the .460 Rowland may have an arguement but you are not likely to see it on your local Walmart shelfs in the near future.
    I would venture to guess that the .460 Rowland will be no more popular a decade from now than it is today,and may even be less so. :rolleyes:

    10mm has a better sectional density. Bullets from 135 grains up to 200 grains readily available. 10mm ammo is available on the shelves at my local gun shop.

    *sigh*

    I love it when people post things that say why something is ABSOLUTELY better than something else, can say it in under one full line, and use "etc." in their reasoning. Totally awesome. I also hate logical thought.

    What's your point?

    .50 BMG beats the 460 Rowland in every way! Bigger bullet, far higher velocity, and it can fit into a pistol the size of a Maglite! Only wusses can't handle the recoil!

    Some folks never learned that the point of internet forums is to share and learn, rather than preach from behind a podium.

    Dude, we're not your congregation.

    headshots with a .22LR

    from concealment in under .697 seconds is good, but is it better than a P239 in 357 SIG with the first shot being .118 seconds behind that?

    How about the .460 vs the 440 CorBon? ;) Oops, not many pistols in .50 AE... wait, are we limiting the platform?

    Double wait... better for what?

    Well, that just came out of nowhere, didn't it?

    Almost like the kid who comes up to you and tells you he can belch the entire alphabet. :D

    Yea, well my Dad can beat up your Dad.

    Coke is superior to Pepsi(you can clean your battery terminals with it you know).

    Chevy is superior to Ford

    Dodge can't hold a candle to Ford.

    I could go on all night.....

    ".460 Rowland beats 10mm in every way."


    :rolleyes: Maybe for dropping a Cape Buffalo. But then there are certainly better choices for that task than the .460 Rowland.

    Nope. Given the many practical uses for which the 10mm's versatility makes it the first choice of thinking men and women everywhere, I'd say the 10mm is superior to the .460 Rowland. ;)

    :cool:

    I noticed that too, Mike.

    But it appears he's no longer banned as of today. :confused:

    Well okeydoke, I've got a Dan Wesson 7460 that takes .460 Rowland, and I'm not even going to back you up on that assertion. I like the .460 Rowland, but saying that it's better than the 10mm just isn't so. It's got good ballistics, but availability of it is just a killer. Until more manufacturers actually start making guns to take it, and ammo for it, the .460 Rowland just isn't going to beat the 10mm.
