|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.
