Great story and congratulations on all of your deer.

I have considered purchasing a .460 Rowland for some time and wondered how it would perform on deer. Also considered whether it was any better performance wise than a 10 mm. You certainly help answer some questions for me on that.

Thanks for posting the story and the info on the gun and load.

John

Huge congrats. One of the least known but one of the best whitetail handgun cartridges out there. I love mine. Superbly accurate.

jcp161,
I have the 10mm also and love that round. The 460 however is a whole other power level. Puts em down fast.

That's what I'm looking for minnesotahunter.
I have an older Gold Cup and think I may have to pick up a conversion unit for it.
