Product overview on 700 nitro express

what is 700 nitro express

The 700 Nitro Express is a large caliber big game rifle cartridge typically charged with around 250 grains of powder,

in addition to a two-grain igniter charge to reduce the tendency of the cartridge to hang fire from

such large powder charges [1].

It was introduced in the 1980s by Holland & Holland and is considered one of the most powerful

rifle cartridges in the world [1].

The .700 Nitro Express is primarily used for hunting large, dangerous game such as elephant,

rhinoceros, and cape buffalo [1].

Holland & Holland’s model Royal Double Rifle is chambered for the .700 Nitro Express and weighs around

25 pounds, with a 24-inch barrel [2].

The 700 Nitro Express (17.8×89mmR) is a big game rifle cartridge.

The cartridge is typically charged with around 250 grains of powder, in addition to a two grain igniter

charge (to reduce the tendency of the cartridge to hang fire from such large powder charges).

The cartridge was introduced in 1988 by the boutique gunmakers Holland & Holland (H&H) of London, England.

It was developed by Jim Bell and William Feldstein and built by H & H.

Feldstein had tried unsuccessfully to get H & H to build a .1,000 nitro express for him,

but they had already ceased production.

However, when Bell and Feldstein produced an entirely new .700 Nitro Express cartridge,

they were able to attract the interest of H & H, which was looking for a new big-bore cartridge.

After production began, the backlog of orders was so great that it continued to 2007 and

H & H restarted the production of .600 Nitro Express guns

The .700 Nitro Express is a big game rifle cartridge that was developed in the 1980s by Holland & Holland,

and is currently one of the most powerful rifle cartridges available [1][4].

Typically charged with around 250 grains of powder, in addition to a two-grain igniter charge,

the cartridge is primarily used for hunting large and dangerous game,

such as elephant, rhinoceros, and cape buffalo [1][4].

Specifications on .700 nitro express

In many respects this cartridge parallels the 700 nitro express.

It is essentially a scaled-up version of that cartridge,

but is somewhat more powerful, and fires a heavier 1,000-grain (64.8 g) bullet.

The case itself is a completely new case, not simply another case resized.

Double rifles are extremely expensive,

starting at about US$10,000 and selling up to US$260,000 in 2015,

and have generally been replaced by repeater-rifles using rounds such as the

.458 Winchester Magnum.

Ballistics of 700 nitro express for sale

The 700 nitro express ballistics develops an approximate average of 8,900 foot-pounds force (12,100 J)

of muzzle energy with a 1,000 gr (65 g) bullet at 2,000 ft/s (610 m/s). Handloaders can push the

cartridge to generate as much as 15,000 foot-pounds (20,000 J) of energy in a modern bolt action,

by using a 1,000 gr (65 g) bullet fired at 2,600 ft/s (792 m/s). However, doing so necessitates a rifle

so heavy it is almost inoperable for hunting purposes.

Lathe turned cases as used in the Accurate Reloading rifle above will suffer blown primers at this level

though a good source of drawn brass would allow (in theory) velocities up to 2,700 ft/s (820 m/s).

 

700 nitro express

The typical average muzzle velocity of a factory-loaded cartridge is 2,000 ft/s (610 m/s).

In the 18-pound (8.2 kg) rifle used by Accurate Reloading this would result in recoil energy of

approximately 160 ft⋅lbf (220 J). This is more than ten times the average recoil from a .308

Winchester which is a very common hunting caliber,

and more than 4 times the recoil of a strong .45-70 Government round.

Firearms At The AMMO MARCH
Feldstein went on an African safari for the first time with his family in the early 1970s, fulfilling a lifetime desire.

Although he just brought a camera on his first trip to Africa, he was inspired to return and learn all

he could about the mysterious Dark Continent. He planned to venture off the beaten route into remote areas of Africa,

where carrying a firearm was not only advised, but required.

While traveling with famous elephant hunter Wally Johnson, Feldstein went on his first hunting expedition in the Okavango

Delta in Botswana in 1975. Feldstein took two Winchester Model 70 magazine rifles with him on the expedition,

one of which was chambered in.375 H&H Mag. While on his first safari, Feldstein hunted Cape buffalo and plains animals.

Soon after Tanzania abolished its hunting restriction in 1979, he went on a 21-day safari there.

The late David Schaefer, an artist and former PH, led the expedition.

When Feldstein decided to take the direct flight from Los Angeles to a bush strip in central

Tanzania’s Rungwa Hunting Concession,

he did so with a great deal of excitement, as his safari would be the first in that historic

hunting territory in recent years.

Feldstein’s main target on that trip was an elephant, so he made sure to bring along a Rhoda double rifle

chambered in.450/400 NE and two licenses.
