    .460 Rowland and .45 ACP Super

    20 Round Box

    Press Release for Buffalo Bore .460 Rowland® Ammunition

    Again, as a result of popular demand, Buffalo Bore has added a new cartridge to its line—the .460 Rowland®.

    The .460 Rowland®, as we load it, is squarely at mid 44 magnum power levels. This means that a person can now carry a 1911 style combat pistol that has the power of a 44 mag. revolver, but is slimmer, faster to reload, faster to shoot and holds nine rounds instead of a revolver’s six. The .460 Rowland® casing is simply a 45 ACP case that has been slightly lengthened so it won’t chamber in a 45 ACP chamber. It also has a stronger web area in the casing, so as to avoid "blowouts".

    To acquire .460 Rowland® test guns, I sent two of my 1911 45 acp pistols to Clark Custom Guns and had them install their .460 Rowland® conversion kits which at the time were being made by Johnny Rowland. To date the converted 1911’s work great. I can fire a 255gr. hard cast bullet @ 1300 fps or a 230gr. FMJ-FN bullet @ 1350 fps. What a great "woods" pistol that still maintains combat pistol qualities.

    We are using flash suppressed powders in each .460 Rowland® load, so that if you have to shoot a bear or “bad guy” in the dark, the muzzle flash will not blind the shooter and we feel this feature is a big tactical advantage as most civilian shootings in America, occur in low light and we are willing to bet that most emergency wildlife shootings in the wilderness will be in low light too.

    Note my real world velocities (below) from real world pistols, not laboratory test barrels.

    Now INCLUDES the .460 Rowland® Tougher Buffer Recoil System!


    Johnny’s Original .460 Rowland® was developed on a 1911 and it’s still Johnny’s favorite. Convert your 1911 and realize True .44 Magnum Ballistics with the only Authentic .460 Rowland® Conversion available anywhere.




    They also have kits for sigs and glocks...... but they are 1/8th as sexxxy.


    After the conversion the guns will fire .45 ACP super as well.

    Owner of Buffalo Bore Tim Sundles on Heavy 45 Super Ammunition:

    45 Super is externally/dimensionally identical to 45 acp or 45 acp+P and is designed to be used in 45 acp semi auto pistols that have been fitted with stronger than normal recoil springs and a shock buffer, plus a couple other modifications. While you can shoot 45 SUPER out of some stock 45 acp+P pistols such as the Glock 21, HK USP or the full sized all steel 1911, you will batter your pistol if you do not have them modified to handle the extra pressure and slide velocity of the 45 Super.

    The below velocities were fired from my Colt Gold Cup Govt. Model (5 inch) that was converted to 45 Super.

    Item # 45S200-----------1235 fps (200gr. Jhp)

    I had a few boxes of buffalo bore 45-70.

    Great ammo if you need to cut down a tree.

    .45 Super you say? Why that's .07 more manly than .38 Super!
    Ain't gonna lie. I'm thinking about it.

    That conversion is pretty cool. The fact that you can still shoot 45 acp means costs are kept down, though I assume you'd be swapping recoil springs (maybe not?). I think I'd rather go with 10mm due to lower pressures, greater safety margin, higher capacity, and no need to use a comp.

    I also vote for 10mm. You can get an EAA Witness for under $600.

    10 mm is .357 power

    .460 Rowland is .44 mag power

    .45 Super is hot ass 10mm and .357 energy with a bigger hole.

    .45 acp is awesome.
