    Seriously considering the 460 Rowland
    I have been looking for that one gun I can always carry in the woods..I am very seriously considering that 460 Rowland for my Springfield TRP. I can then sell off my 460 S&W which is a very large gun.... I have been carrying my .357 mag but this would be the EDC and woods gun since .45 ACP can still be shot from it..Any one experienced with the 460 Rowland?? I sure would like some Qualified opinions...

    That's why I size with a Lee U die. That's the kind of thing that could ruin your day.

    The muzzle-brake looks cool with the huge ports, but I am pretty certain that there is little or no gas compensation occurring, only inertial compensation. I suspect the honking big ports are to make it easier to clean.

    How is the chamber support on the Rowland barrel compared to your factory Springer barrel?
