    I have a G30 and thinking about getting the conversion kit. Any advise would be appreciated.

    460 Rowland is one of my favorite rounds.I have a Kimber TLE dedicated to 460,a very accurate and nice gun to shoot.Draws quite a crowd at the range when you're shooting it.I just got a 6" KKM barrel for my G30,and I swear it barks just as much as the Rowland,maybe more.

    KKM is a premium barrel maker.Their 6" barrel is a drop in and go.The extra 11/2" increase velocity by about 200fps.,making your 10mm a monster!

    Now iam confused. Did John Rowland invent the 460 round? And, what is the 460 S&W all about?
    I guess what Iam asking is,"Was there a 460 round before the Rowland 460?"
    Thanks,
    Forrest

    Rowland,with some help from the guys at Ga. Arms,did come up with the 460 semi-auto round,to use hunting hogs.The 460S&W is a revolver round with a much longer oal.I don't know which round is older.

    According to wiki,(take with a grain of salt) the .460 Rowland was introduced in 1998, the .460 S&W was introduced in 2005.
