The .460 Steyr is a large-caliber, centerfire rifle cartridge developed by the Austrian firm Steyr Arms in 2004. It was designed to address deficiencies of the .45-70 Government and provide greater energy and range capabilities for wild game hunting.

The .460 Steyr is an improved version of the .45-70 round offering superior ballistics performance in medium-to-long range applications. It features a higher case capacity which results in higher velocities, flatter trajectories compared to other rounds with similar bullet weights.

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.
