    I see the .450 Jeffery listed as a caliber choice in some rifles but am unable to find any info on the cartridge (likely a lack of Googlefoo on my part). Is this a Domesticated Wildcat based on the .404 Jeffery Case?

    You may be thinking of the 450 No 2 NE. Which is for a double rifle and many made by Jeffery

    I thought I had seen it two different places but in retrospect it was only one.

    I now suspect that it was a typo and was supposed to be .450 Rigby.
