    Does anybody have a load for a 460 Rowland with a 250 grain JHP bullet. I have Longshot , Blue Dot, H 110, Red dot , H 4895 in powder. Seems like you load with what you can get and not for the optimum.
    Thanks

    Couldn't find any data for HS6 but took a chance and loaded up some with a guess from the burn chart. 11.5 gr HS6 with 200 gr XTP. They shot fine in my 1911 style Rowland. I didn't have my chrono with me , maybe next time I can get the speed.

    200 gr is the largest Ive loaded. I had to re seat the first batch deeper to get them to go in the 1911 mags.

    For the volume capacity of the rowland, I'd be really surprised if you could go over 230gr, keep jamming in a bigger bullet, and you lose all the advantages just trying to make up for lost powder space.
