.460 Rowland (no ontology)

From Mazeworld

.460 Rowland (also referred to as .460 Row) is a pistol cartridge designed by Johnny Ray Rowland, with assistance from Starline Brass for the case design, and Clark Custom Guns for the development of specially prepared 1911 pistols capable of withstanding the new cartridge. The first batches of ammunition and 1911 conversion kits came out in 1998. It is an elongated .45 ACP case, being a sort of ".45 ACP Magnum", in a certain way, although with the same overall length as .45 ACP, allowing it to be loaded in the same magazines and in firearms of the same size.

.460 Rowland is notably much more powerful than .45 ACP, developing energy out of a pistol that rivals in power with Magnum cartridges, with recoil to match - the use of a muzzle brake or some other method to reduce recoil may be recommended.

In the Mazes, it is one of the so-called rare calibers, ammunition for which no standard production firearms and no boxed ammunition exists, but for which certain Maze Customs services are available.

NOTE: .45 ACP may not be fired in .460 Rowland firearms in the game (with the explicit exception of revolvers).
