*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 thegeneral 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).
