History of the .450-400 Nitro Express cartridge:

The 450/400 Nitro Express or 400 Jeffery Nitro Express was introduced in 1907 by Jeffery to replace the 450/400 BPE, in 3&¼" cases and later in 3" cases. .
(B.P.E. for Black Powder Express). (Nitro Express for Smokeless Powder or Cordite in 1907)
The 3" version case will have both “450-400 Nitro Express” and “400 Nitro Express” Head-stamps.
The 3" case version was introduced after the 3 & ¼""case version, as some of the 3 & ¼" cases  would stick inside the chamber of the older 3 & ¼" case  B.P.E rifles after firing.
