Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I never could get excited about the 50GI but I've got a 460 rowland in the words. It's taking off a lot slower then I though since work picked up but it will get there.

Cane and Dillinger,I enjoyed the competition thread.I think I'll go with the Rowland for my Kimber.I grew up with the guys at Georgia Arms and their just down the road a piece.The ballistics,price of the ammo and availibility,and Canes assurance that it won't mess up my gun,swayed my desision.I'm looking forward to getting the kit and will report back when it is completed.May get the 50G.I. for the Glock too,just for ****s and giggles!

I think the 50GI and the glock would be a good match! JMHO

You don't qualify, you live in the great white North (Timber rattlers hate snow!) and you're not old enough.

Between the two rounds, 50 GI or 460 Rowland, there is the problem of availability. To my knowledge, the 50 GI is available from one source, the gun's manufacturer; while there are more than one for the 460, and hopefully, growing. The Rowland can easily be a hunting/woods round, or a defensive one. I do not believe the 50 GI as a good penetration/animal round. I do not have experience with either, but Canebrake and others do with the 460 - listen to them.
