*The 460 Steyr was designed by Horst
Grillmayer (Austria) in 2002, and the
projectiles were designed by Guido Wasser
(Switzerland) with first production cases
made from 50 BMG by Igman Zavod
(Yugoslavia).
The  rifle & cartridge was put into production
by Steyr Mannlicher in (approximately)
2004.
The 460 Steyr was a way to offer an ultra-
long range, sporting/sniper rifle  and cartridge
that would not break the laws of many
European countries, which forbade the
general public from using a 50 BMG cartridge:
(BMG = Browning Machine Gun).
As with the .416 Barrett cartridge (which is
used in the U.S. Military  and by private
citizens in the USA),  the 460 Steyr cartridge
was developed  by shortening and necking
down the .50 BMG case; however, the 460
Steyr is longer and necked down to 458
caliber verses the .416 caliber for the
416 Barrett.
The Steyr head stamp cartridge has not yet
been imported or currently available in the
United States by  Steyr for the general public;
however,  we have some custom made 460
Steyr cartridges available, made from new
Winchester 50 caliber BMG  brass and loaded
with a 525 grain,  solid, "special" alloy
projectile, turned on a CNC machine tool
machine (Computer Numerical Controlled).
