.470 Nitro Express
 
 

The .470 Nitro Express, introduced around 1907 is attributed to Joseph Lang and is another of the standard big game calibres of the British gun trade that was adopted by a large number of rifle makers. It was developed as a substitute for the .450 which was banned in India and the Sudan for a number of years. It was popular with the elephant hunters of the day and still enjoys a great reputation.
