.470 Nitro Express 500 grain Barnes TSX- The .470 Nitro Express is a rifle cartridge developed by Joseph Lang in England for dangerous game hunting in 1907. This cartridge is used almost exclusively in double rifles for hunting in the tropics or hot climate. It is in wide use in the Southern and Central-East African region, favoured by hunting guides, primarily while out for Cape buffalo and elephant. Due to the heavy bullet and powder charge, the gun has significant recoil but this is mitigated by the low velocity, resulting in recoil being delivered as a strong push rather than a violent blow. Rifles chambered for this cartridge tend to be heavy double-gun style, and are typically quite expensive. The .470 NE continues to be the most popular of all the Nitro Express cartridges.

The .470 NE was originally designed by Lang’s as a replacement for the .450 Nitro Express, after the .450 NE was banned in several countries including India. This wasn’t because the .450 NE was underpowered or inadequate, but because its bullets could be removed from loaded rounds for use by natives in stolen .577/.450 Martini Henry rifles. The .470 is a well-balanced cartridge. It is perfect for elephant but will take lion and anything in between, all without the severe recoil generated by the .500 and larger caliber Nitro Express cartridges. the .470’s trajectory drops fast past one hundred yards, but this is inconsequential. It is a purpose built tool for life or death circumstances at close quarters and excels at the job.

  • .416 Remington Magnum 400 Grain Dangerous Game Combo 20/20 Game Pack!  The .416 Remington Magnum is a .416 caliber (10.6 mm) of a belted bottle-necked design. The cartridge was intended as a dangerous game hunting cartridge and released to the public in 1989. The cartridge uses the case of the 8 mm Remington Magnum as a parent cartridge. When the cartridge was released in 1988, author Frank C. Barnes considered the .416 Remington Magnum to be the “most outstanding factory cartridge introduced in decades”.

    The cartridge was conceived as a less costly alternative to the .416 Rigby cartridge and was intended to replace the latter. While today the .416 Remington Magnum is considered in the field the most popular of the .416 cartridges, the .416 Remington did not replace the .416 Rigby as had been anticipated. Rather, it sparked a renewed interest in the .416 caliber (10.36 mm) cartridges which led to the revival of the .416 Rigby and the introduction of other .416 cartridges such as the .416 Weatherby Magnum and the .416 Ruger.

    The .416 Remington Magnum is one of the more popular dangerous game cartridges used for the hunting of dangerous game in Africa. It also has been increasingly used in North America, in Alaska in particular for the hunting of  bears.

    Choice Ammunition meticulously hand-loads 100% of our ammunition to insure superior performance, accuracy and reliability. These 400 grain Swift A-Frame and Break-Away Solid bullets for the 416 Remington are ideal for dangerous game and large bodied animals.
