500/450 Nitro Express - 480gr RN-SP projectile - Display Round - INERT
This display round (dummy round) is made from a brand new Harald Wolf Mastergunworks brass case (headstamp HWM 500/450NE) and a 480gr soft point projectile. The brass case was likely manufactured by Horneber (Germany) for Harald Wolf Mastergunworks.

Cartridges of this caliber are quite rare as there is no factory ammo available. Smaller manufacturer occasionally produce a small batch, but when it's sold you have to wait for quite some time...

This round cannot be fired as it does not contain powder or primer, there is no license required.

From Cartridges of the World:
"This was a prime competitor of the .450 3¼-inch Nitro Express. Performance of the two is practically identical. The British developed
several .45-caliber large bores, all of which produced about 5000 ft-lbs of muzzle energy. These cartridges have about the same killing
power, and the choice becomes more or less a matter of individual preference. All are large cartridges that develop quite low pressures and are therefore suitable for hot climates where dangerous game abounds."

I am downsizing my collection of dangerous game and big bore cartridges to raise some funds for a new project. Watch this space... Please click here to ask a question
