Can anyone help me find ammunition, components, brass anything. I am at a total loss and so frustrated I might just sell this rifle at a loss after just one week!

I did quick search. I’m mistaken.
All I can get or might have is
450/400 3inch
I don’t think I have any 3 1/4 inch ammo

Does anyone know definitely if you can load 450/400 3" in a 450/400 3 1/4?

Hornady USED to offer brass for the .450/400 Nitro Express 3 1/4". But it's unfortunately been discontinued now for several years.

Have you checked with Hendershot’s in Maryland?

I looked on Henershots website they only listed the 3" version* I am going.to give them a call tomorrow, Kynoch doesn't have any listed.in stock but it does show they produce them. As far.as price.goes.when your in the safari and double rifle game it comes with the territory.

I have about 200x unfired Hornady brass in .450-400 3&1/4”.

Unfortunately it is in SA. I’ll be willing to sell if we can get it legally to you, without it costing an arm and a leg

Do you have dies?
Do you have a shell holder?
What diameter bullet does it shoot? It can be anywhere from .408 to .411.

I would like to warn you from experience.

Before you invest much money in loaded ammunition, that factory ammunition may not regulate.

I once had a very accurate George Gibbs .450-.400 3 1/4. It was only accurate my reloads. If you like I can furnish you the loading information. I strongly recommend you get your bore diameter determined.

PM me when you get a chance, have a few questions for you.

Pheroze: I was intrigued by the blog on 400, 465 H&H in which you stated you were having a rifle reamed out to accomodate the larger bore. Who is doing the work for you, do they then provide cut rifling or buttoned. Will a 375 H&H rechamber to the 400 H&H. Is there much ballistic difference between it and the 404/375
