The .700 Nitro Express (17.8×89mmR) is a big game rifle cartridge made by Holland & Holland, London, England. Fires a 1000 grain solid bullet.
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 calibre. The last picture shows a common 223 Remington & 308 Winchester next to the 700 Nitro.
The cases are head stamped 'Morrow'. The sale is for one round only.
