Any chance he'd think about a 5-shot Tracker with a 4" ported barrel chambered in .460 Rowland for use with .460 Rowland, .45 Super and .45 ACP in moonclips as well as .45 Auto Rim.

It'd be the perfect dual-use "bear capable" field/self-defense revolver for folks like me who only stock (and/or reload) .45 and primarily shoot 1911's.

The .45 Colt has a different bullet/rifling diameter, different brass, and requires that ridiculous Judge-length cylinder, making the gun far from "concealable". For the reloader and bullet caster the Rowland only requires new brass, and who shoots that much of their hot bear ammo anyway?

The Rowland OAL is the same as the .45 ACP, which are both shorter than the .44 Special, so it could have a nice concealable length cylinder and no bullet jump issues. If they can chamber the Tracker in .44 Mag and hot .45 Colt I'd think the Rowland should be OK pressure-wise.

The 4" revolver barrel would compare favorably to the .460 in a ported 5-6" 1911 velocity-wise.

Anyway, that's my idea if he's looking for any.
