    i asked hornady about the lack of availability of there DG series brass, specificly the 450/400 3" but im sure the answer they gave me is probably applicable to most of the DG series. here is the answer i got:

    heres hopen a great deal of scarce brass becomes available soon.

    Matt not sure if you have but have you looked into Norma brass, I prefer it for the 460 it seems to hold up well, I am not sue if you can find it in the US but should you be able to...

    It is an excellent buy...

    My best always.

    unfortunately Norma does not make 450/400 brass. to my knowledge only Hornady and Bertram produce brass for this caliber. Bertram is convinced their brass is made of gold and the average price is $100 per 20 which means Hornady is pretty much the sole supplier of brass for this cartridge.

    with my previous experience with Hornady brass id say they make decent quality brass. now Hornady's DGX bullet is a different story... I do not like it. Hornady factory ammo is for target practice only.

    Thanks Matt I was unaware of this, I struggled to get brass for my 460 in SA until I imported from Norway, good to know...

    We share sentiment on Factory ammo by above mentioned manufacturer...

    My best always
