The 470 Capstick  is a Huge Proprietary Cartridge that  was designed by Col. Ardor B. Alphin. I  have not been
able to find out the  year it was introduced.  It was named for the famous big game hunter, and author, Peter Capstick.
It started as a wildcat cartridge, by  necking out the 375 H&H Magnum Case to except .475" diameter,  
500 grain projectiles.
It is now made by a very few small ammunition companies, which now makes it a Proprietary Cartridge.
Please note this is a USA cartridge not a British cartridge design , even though below are made by Kynoch of England.
