African Dangerous Game Side by Side safari double rifle in .450/400 Nitro Express. With double triggers and ejectors. Designed and manufactured to assure performance, strength, reliability & accuracy. The receiver is forged & milled from a solid block of high strength steel.
The .450/400 3" Nitro Express AKA 400 Jeffery was once a favored caliber before the .375 H&H. This will fire a 400 grain bullet over 2100 FPS making it an excellent Cape Buffalo rifle. The high sectional density of the 400 grain solid at 2100 FPS will penetrate deeper than 458 Win Mag with a 500 grain solid making this an effective elephant rifle with manageable recoil. It is better to shoot a 400 grain bullet accurately and quickly that a 500 grain bullet poorly. Consider a 450/400 as you Dangerous Game rifle.
According to John Taylor he wrote about the 450/400 3"..."I have used it extensively on all kinds of African game from Elephant on down with the greatest possible satisfaction." "I have never heard any African hunter complain about the .400." "For some reason that I find difficult to explain, I derived greater pleasure from using the .400 than any other caliber; and no weapon behaved more successfully in my hands."

He was so impressed that he purchased one of the Sabatti rifles he reviewed. See his Article in Petersen Hunting Dangerous Game Issue December 2016.
