Cartridge identification

At 2:07 I would say that's a 470 Nitro Express. What say you?

1. Looks like a 500 Nitro Express?

But I've only seen them shot from a double rifle, not a bolt action. I think all the Nitro Express rounds have a rounded head bullet.

I had a chance to shoot a 600 Nitro Express from a Holland & Holland double rifle. I was helping a guy at the range sight it in with different powder loads.

Had a shoulder bruise for a week afterwards. But it was worth it, what a rush. LOL, more fun than running Ma Deuce.

2. I thought it might be as well, but, the 500 Nitro

doesn't have a shoulder. Its a straight cartridge.





Compared to




I think the cartridge in the vid he's holding is a 470 Nitro. I'm just not certain.
