Load data for caliber ".460 Steyr"
The .460 Steyr is a centerfire rifle cartridge developed by the Steyr Arms company in Austria. It was introduced in 2000 and is designed for use in high-powered, long-range hunting rifles.

The .460 Steyr cartridge uses a bottlenecked case with a bullet diameter of 11.7mm and an overall case length of 72mm. It typically fires a heavy, 500-grain bullet at a muzzle velocity of around 2,400 feet per second, delivering high energy and stopping power at long ranges.

The .460 Steyr cartridge is a specialized cartridge that is not widely used, but it has gained a reputation as an effective and accurate cartridge for hunting large and dangerous game such as bear, moose, and African plains game. It is also used in long-range target shooting competitions, where its flat trajectory and high accuracy make it a popular choice among serious shooters.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
