50GI is a joke.

I would probably just stick with 45acp if it was me. 460 Rowland is a beast of a round though.

I 480 Ruger...does that count?

Actually, I don't. My brother had one but I am to chicken to touch it off!

Do want!

May still do it but sure as hell don't regret the divorce!
I say do it and of course post plenty of pictures...

Tag for how the XD 460 Rowland turns out. I have read there can be some issues but damn 230 grains at over 1300fps....makes 10mm look like 9mm

Please explain. In the 4" barrel the OP has I wouldn't think there is much performance difference. He also loses the ability to simply use 45ACP.......why go 460 Rowland in a short barrel?

Compensated barrel on a defensive pistol, what could go wrong (at night)?

460 will still get a 230 gr projo to 1150-1200 fps in a 4" bbl. Not gonna happen in a 45 super.

That's what I like to see, pushing the envelope with a plastic pistol.

I don't but definitely would like to! Let us know how it works out,

Looks like I am going to be in the market for a G21 in the near future.

Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-NECKBEARD!


Just teasing, I have an XD. They're super meh. Get a Glock, f'real. In which case, just get a G20, and you can get ammo a lot easier. Get it in a holster easier, too.

I'm just thinking it's too impractical unless you're actually going to hunt with it.
