.470 Nitro Express / .470 NE (Cartridges of the World)

.470 Nitro Express / .470 NE (Cartridges of the World)
Warning! Notes: In 1989, Federal Cartridge Co. added this caliber to its Premium product line, making it the first British Nitro Express caliber offered by a major American manufacturer. The 470 is generally too powerful for most North American game, but works well on medium to large game worldwide. Many 470 shooters reload the cartridge because of the high cost of factory ammo. Federal's factory loads can provide cases, and Barnes offers bullets. (Cartridges of the World 10th Edition)
