Introduced by the John Rigby Company in 1898, the 450 Nitro Express 3¼" is the cartridge by which all other dangerous game cartridges were measured. Originally stoked with cordite and a 480 grain bullet, the original 450 Nitro Express ammo quickly replaced the massive 8, 6, and 4-bore black powder cartridges that were the standard of their day.
Hornady''s 450 Nitro Express 3¼" ammunition uses premium smokeless propellants to create a safe, accurate and affordable alternative to other dangerous game ammo on the market. Featuring a 480 grain bullet with a muzzle velocity of 2,150 feet per second, The Hornady 450 NE offers two bullet styles to suit any dangerous game situation. The Dangerous Game Solid (DGS) is a non-expanding solid for deep penetration on the toughest, most dangerous animals in the world. And the 480 grain Dangerous Game eXpanding (DGX) expands to allow more energy to be transferred upon impact, while still delivering deep penetration and devastating wound cavities.
Hornady is manufacturing both bullets and cartridge cases in-house to the ultra tight tolerances that have made Hornady synonymous with successful Safaris. This in-house manufacture also ensures that there will be no shortage of this fine ammunition.
