    What a beauty-Cogswell and Harrison Certus

    Saw this is in the upcoming holts auction. If only it was in a calibre that you could actually get brass for! But then again, if it were in 450/400 NE it'd probaly be double the price.

    You can always make brass from something else. Where there's a will, there's a way!~MUir

    You're a bad influence Muir! I do have plenty of 45-120 brass sat around. I can't find any dimensions for 400 Nitro though.

    Is this the same cartridge as the 400 Purdey or the 400 nitro black powder

    Don't know if this would be of any use:

    I don't think its the 400 Purdey but other than that I'm not sure.
    That link is great, me missus is getting me that book for Xmas looking at that list though I can't find a 400 nitro.
    Hmmm, very curious

    I found a 400 nitro 3" in The Handloaders Manual For Cartridge Conversions.

    the specs mentioned here for 450/400 are the same as mentioned in the auction. So looks like it may be a 450/400. Which makes it very tempting!

    Same here aswell. 400gr bullet, 60gr cordite.

    Hmm maybe it isn't 450/400 then. What weight bullet does it use?
