I am looking for 2 boxes of factory Hornady ammo in 450/400 3". Ideally I would like to find a box each of dgx and dgs but that's not super critical. I just want to see how these are going to shoot and then I can just reuse the brass for reloading. Let me know if you have anything you'd like to sell. Thanks!

Not sure if this helps or where you’re located. Alaska Ammo in Anchorage has what you’re looking for.

Thanks! I am afraid of shipping costs for sure. I am in Utah. I will call them to see what it costs to ship and if it would even be reasonable but I suspect it would be better to just find some in the lower 48 to save some money.

Mike B, if the purchase price is reasonable, shipping costs will be the least of your worries. Have you tried to buy any other ammo recently. Except for a few odds and ends most vendor's shelves are bare.

They can't ship out of state which is probably going to be the case for most shops in Alaska. I guess it has to go by sea so unfortunately I will have to find some in the lower 48. Gunbroker has one guy that is hell bent on buying up all the ammo there so I can wait until he has his lifetime supply of big bore ammo :LOL: I am not willing to pay $200 per box of ammo since I have all of the components to reload. Well I would pay that if I knew the end price but that is as far as I was willing to go.

I do have some DGS bullets that have been shipped that I can reload with but do not have any of the dgx to reload. It would be nice to have a box or two of the factory stuff to see how they shoot out of a used but new to me double rifle that I just bought. If I didn't have to reload, that is what I would prefer but I will do what I need to to make this all work.

Sounds like you need to purchase a ticket to Alaska, bring the gun and shoot a moose. Then do some shopping.

That is a good idea. I was able to get a box of dgx today from an awesome forum member here so now I just need a box of dgs. Thanks for everyone's help on this!

I have some dgs I can part with if you still need it.
What state are you in?

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
