Hello Gentleman's, any out there using this cartridge? (470 Capstick )
I wold like to have some idea in regard to hand-load with 500 grain bullet. Have on hand the following powders: IMR 4350,4831,3031, 4895, H1000, Retumbo and N150.
Also i am looking to buy a set of reloading dies and a chamber reamer if some one have it and like to sell it.
Please contact Roberto either trough the site or via e-mail [redacted]
wishing every one a wonderful day Best Regards,thanks

I have not fired my 470 capstick all the load data is from A Square load data manual Any Shot You Want. That only talks about jacketed bullets and solids.

Good Morning Krish,
thanks for your replay, that will give me a good idea how to proceed... now need to find reamer and die... talk to makers and was told 2 years delay to make me one !!! so i am still hoping to find a use one some how!!!
In regard to cast bullet I made a 45/70 using a Siamese Mauser action and if fire 350 grain hard cast gas check at 2260 fps without signs of pressure almost the same as jacket bullets and no barrel leading !
Well thanks again, best regards

I’ll see what I am loading. It’s a good caliber for sure. Qual-Cart has or had some brass. If they don’t, let me know, I ordered some extra last time I got it.
