I am contemplating putting a ramped Clark barrel in a commander in .460 w/the compensator and loading some .460 Rowland. Mainly, my interest is in bear defense and the .460 out to do that with the right lead bullet.

Anyone out there done that? I searched the forum but didn't find a range report on the Rowland.

At the moment, I have a .44 629 I am using for this purpose, but I'd sure love to be able to take one of my beloved 1911's with me for this job.

A friend of mine downed a 200+ pound buck last week with his using a 180 grain Sierra JHC at around 1500fps.

Now that's what I'm talking about!

Have you fired it? I am curious as to how the compensator and balance of the 1911 influence the controllability of this round. The reviews say it feels like a "full house .45acp" - which I just have trouble believing, but I am inexperienced as to what a good compensator can do.

How did that round do at that velocity? Love to know the details if you know them.
