Description

PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The 700 Nitro Express (17.8×89mmR) is a big game rifle cartridge. The 700 Nitro Express cartridge is typically charged with around 250 grains of powder, in addition to a two grain igniter charge (to reduce the tendency of the cartridge to hang fire from such large powder charges).

The cartridge was introduced in 1988 by the boutique gunmakers Holland & Holland (H&H) of London, England. It was developed by Jim Bell and William Feldstein and built by H & H. Feldstein had tried unsuccessfully to get H & H to build a .600 Nitro Express for him, but they had already ceased production. However, when Bell and Feldstein produced the entirely new 700 Nitro Express cartridge, they were able to attract the interest of H & H, which was looking for a new big-bore cartridge.

After production began, the backlog of orders was so great that it continued to 2007 and H & H restarted the production of .600 Nitro Express guns.

Specifications On 700 Nitro Express

In many respects the 700 NITRO EXPRESS cartridge parallels the .600 Nitro Express. It is essentially a scaled-up version of that cartridge, but is somewhat more powerful, and fires a heavier 1,000-grain (64.8 g) bullet. The case itself is a completely new case, not simply another case resized.

Double rifles are extremely expensive, starting at about US$10,000 and selling up to US$260,000 in 2015, and have generally been replaced by repeater-rifles using rounds such as the .458 Winchester Magnum.

The .700 Nitro Express develops an approximate average of 8,900 foot-pounds force (12,100 J) of muzzle energy with a 1,000 gr (65 g) bullet at 2,000 ft/s (610 m/s). Handloaders can push the cartridge to generate as much as 15,000 foot-pounds (20,000 J) of energy in a modern bolt action, by using a 1,000 gr (65 g) bullet fired at 2,600 ft/s (792 m/s).

However, doing so necessitates a rifle so heavy it is almost inoperable for hunting purposes. Lathe turned cases as used in the Accurate Reloading rifle above will suffer blown primers at this level though a good source of drawn brass would allow (in theory) velocities up to 2,700 ft/s (820 m/s).

The typical average muzzle velocity of a factory-loaded cartridge is 2,000 ft/s (610 m/s). In the 18-pound (8.2 kg) rifle used by Accurate Reloading this would result in recoil energy of approximately 160 ft⋅lbf (220 J).

This is more than ten times the average recoil from a .308 Winchester which is a very common hunting caliber, and more than 4 times the recoil of a strong .45-70 Government round.

Feldstein fulfilled a lifetime goal when he traveled to East Africa with his family to experience his first African safari in the early 1970s.

Even though he only used a camera on that first adventure, it fueled his desire to see more of Africa and get to know the Dark Continent better. He wanted to get off the “beaten path” and explore the wilder parts of Africa, where carrying a pistol was not only suggested, but also required for survival.

Feldstein’s first hunting trip, with legendary elephant hunter Wally Johnson, took place in Botswana’s Okavango Delta in 1975. Feldstein traveled with a pair of Winchester Model 70 magazine rifles, the largest of which was chambered in.375 H&H Mag. Feldstein hunted Cape buffalo and plains game for the first time, and before the safari was over, he was already organizing the next one.
