Another funny thing...750 Nitro Express

Well,
an Italian gunsmith made a special-ordered double rifle in this caliber.The cartridge was ideated by the customer ( an american guy) and made by Barnes,especially for him.No other rifle was chambered for this cartridge.
I have seen the rifle and the ammunition,it is a scaled up version of the 700 NE,with an approx. 89 mm case and a 1300 gr solid bullet
The rifle was not bought by the customer and it is worth approx 250,000 euro
( note: without engraving )

Several collectors have an even bigger cartridge, the 12 Gauge From Hell. I have one but don’t ask me why.

Ray, not only do I still own 2 of them (I gave my sabot loaded one to “some wildcat guy” at a SLICS), I’ve fired Ed’s monster several times.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh,do you have a spare 585 Nyaty sample???
However,the 750 NE and the 12 gauge from hell looks very very similar.

I don’t have a spare 585 Nyati, but IIRC Dave Call at Ammo-One has some (along with the means to inert them).
The bottleneck in that photo is the 577 T-Rex BTW, not a Nyati.

another one that I miss…

Sorry,what is that rimless 600 NE (?) in your photo?

It’s .600 Overkill and belted.

.585 NYATI, .577 TYRANNOSAUR, .600 OVERKILL, .500 NE, .600 NE, .700 NE.

Sigh,I miss the first ones.They are a bit too much expensive,maybe I will be able to find out some fired cases.
Thank you for sharing your pictures
