Is the 465 H&H as dead as your dinner?

Just mostly dead. I don't have the rifle. A friend gave them to me from a closed custom ammo company. I have them as a conversation starter on my deskView attachment 295946View attachment 295947
WOW! I’ve been pleading here on AH for months for someone to produce a photo of an actual .465 h an h cartridge to prove it still exists. Congrats! You did it! Pheroze started this thread, so when he sees this he’ll lose his mind! Ha! Ha!

Those look really cool. I wonder what bullet is sitting on top of that piece of brass? Unfortunately, I think that is actually the 500/465 H&H cartridge for double rifles, not the 465H&H for bolt action rifles. :unsure: That bad boy is the rimmed version not the belted magnum.:) Alas, the quest continues.....:P Elmer Fudd:

Oldish thread but:

.375, .400 and .465 H&H.

The 400 is a bolt action .450/400 and the 465 is a bolt .500/465. The .500/465 was H&H’s answer to the .450 ban back in the day so it’s sort of their unique bore diameter. Hence why they went .465 for their new big bolt gun cartridge. Neat idea IMO. Bullets aren’t hard to find and any .378 based case can be used to make cases so there’ll always be a way to get them.

Another 2 aspects to their designs was smooth feeding like the .375 (hence the long necks and shoulders) and to actually make the belt have a use like the .375 does. They also went for a classic H&H look. I reckon they pulled it off. If I had the money I’d get a .375 and a .465 H&H.

IMO the 400 H&H is brilliant well balanced cartridge that is a day late in coming onto the scene. There are other cartridges that fill pretty much the same niche? The 465 I cannot comment on, but the 500/465 was one of THE lowest pressure cartridges of all the heavies, an excellent choice for tropical heat.

Nice photo, but have you actually seen/held a real .465 H and H cartridge? Apparently, nobody here on AH has? Until someone can produce an actual cartridge for “proof of life”, it’s existence is just a fairy tale to me. Kinda like looking for a Bigfoot, Loch Ness monster or a Unicorn. If not, keep looking! Ha! Ha! Ha!

Well, if it’s a fairy tale you better tell H&H the thing they made and are selling doesn’t exist :p

Very convincing proof this cartridge exists, but who owns or knows anyone who owns a rifle chambered for it? I’ve seen the .577 Tyranosaurus, .550 Triceratops, .600 Overkill, etc., here on AH, but NO .465 H and H? Should be more common than the above wildcats?

What’s the 550 Trike?

Here’s a counter question to you: have you seen anyone here purchase a new H&H (not secondhand) in any caliber?

Now think of how small those numbers are. Now add to that it’s a big specialist cartridge. Most people would be going for 375 I’d say.

Or if they’re spending those big amounts on a large caliber gun most people go the extra mile and get a double.

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
