It seems to be more rare than the fabled white elephant.

There are no in-stock sources available for .450 NE brass (thin rim), and I've had bad luck with a batch of 10 (ten!) BELL basic .450 that I bought, two of which split during resizing--so the other 8 I'm a bit reluctant to use.

Does anyone know of a source? Or has a box of 20 lying around that could sell me (and I'll pay good money)? Going hunting on the 18th and would really like to take my .450 Nitro for Black, but dang it is brass hard to come by!

I'll pay extra for Hornady. Thin rim.

Thanks

Tom

I just ran across your post. On my 470NE I had a similar problem with Bell brass. I had one case crack about .25" lengthwise with minor gas leakage just above the rim on first firing with a relatively light load. I discarded the 20 cases. I have not had any problems in that rifle with other brands of cases even after several reloads.

With respect to the 450NE, if you have not found your 20 cases; I could spare 20 new Hornady 450NE cases.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
