Product Overview 450 400 nitro express
The .450 400 Nitro Express is a Nitro Express rifle cartridge that is produced in three case lengths: 23⁄8-inches, 3 inches and 31⁄4-inches, and is intended for use in single shot and double rifles. The 3-inch and 31⁄4-inch versions are considered classic Nitro Express cartridges.
From African big game to the American Grizzly Bear, Hornady’s Dangerous Game ammunition provides the shooter an exceptional load with more energy transfer and lots of knockdown power. The Hornady Dangerous Game Expanding bullets are designed for taking down the world’s toughest and biggest game animals. This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable brass cases.
The DGX Bonded (Dangerous Game eXpanding) 450 400 nitro express bullet features a copper-clad steel jacket bonded to a lead core to provide limited, controlled expansion with deep penetration and high weight retention. Bonding the jacket to the core prevents separation from high-energy impact on tough material like bone, ensuring the bullet stays together for deep expansion. DGX Bonded bullets are built to the same profile as the corresponding DGS (Dangerous Game Solid) bullets but expand to 1½ to 2 times their bullet diameter.

Product Features of the 450 400 nitro express
HIGH PERFORMANCE HORNADY® BULLETS
From the InterLock® SP-RP bullets to the heavy-hitting DGS® and DGX® bullets, each Dangerous Game™ Series load is topped with a deadly projectile.
InterLock® SP-RP Bullets
SP-RP stands for “spire point – recoil proof,” and the design of this bullet eliminates the problem of tip deformation during recoil. These heavy-duty InterLock® bullets combine rugged design with improved trajectory in dangerous game rifles.
The DGS® non-expanding bullet is recommended for thick-skinned game such as elephant, rhino and hippo. Its tough copper clad steel jacket is designed to provide maximum penetration from all angles on thick-skinned and heavy boned dangerous game animals.
DGX® Bonded Bullets
DGX® Bonded bullets are built to the same profile as the corresponding DGS® (Dangerous Game™ Solid) bullets but expand to 1½ to 2 times their bullet diameter. They feature a copper-clad steel jacket bonded to a lead core to provide limited, controlled expansion with deep penetration and high weight retention. Bonding the jacket to the core prevents separation from high-energy impact on tough material like bone, ensuring the bullet stays together for deep expansion.
Powders are carefully matched to each load to ensure optimum pressure and velocity, and to regulate in double rifles. Some of our Dangerous Game™ Series loads feature Superformance® propellant technology.
CASE AND PRIMER
Like all Hornady® ammunition, our Dangerous Game™ ammunition uses the highest quality cases and primers available. Consistent components translate to consistent shooting in the field.
