Elk Hunter--brass sold years ago. I'm finding things I didn't know I had. Much more to come later. I have lots of .470 brass that can substitute.
Ridgewalker--it's been a great ride but it's time to pass them on.

Would you happen to know if the .465 dies are for the rimless version for a double rifle or the version for a bolt action rifle? Pheroze would know.

I didn’t know either, but somebody here posted a photo of a cartridge and Pheroze said it was for a double and not the rimmed version for a bolt action? Apparently there’s a difference?

Looks like there is a mix-up in the language. Rimmed cartridges are for doubles and single shots and rimless are for bolt actions.

Your right. I got ahold of Pheroze, and he said they made a rimless for the .465 bolt action. But, they're as rare as hens teeth! Thanks!

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
