Do any of you know wich bullet diameter this Kynoch ammo had..? The reason for asking is that the early rifles chambered in this round varied somewhat.. .408 - .410 - .411

My Joseph Lang of 1906 vintage has .408 bores and I just found some pre 1967 ammo..all boxes are loaded with ballistite and has non-corrosive primers..

I can of course pull and measure a bullet...but perhaps some of you know..?
 
Pondoro, can you please tell me if the bullet jacket is steel by using a magnet ? I will do the rest.
 
I will do Habib...i will come back in a couple of weeks, went out to sea this morning..
 
David Little of Kynamco confirmed that he used .408 bullets for the modern Kynoch 450/400 3 1/4 BTW..
