Nyati Inc. – based in northeastern Wisconsin – is a pioneer in Big Bore Low Recoil (B.B.L.R.) ammunition.  Now the company has introduced a new low recoil round, designed by Joseph Lang circa 1900, known as the “.470 Nitro Express.” 

Just these words bring to mind the Golden Age Era that is long gone in African history. 

With the revival of all the old african dangerous game cartridges anything is possible, the company says.  The .470NE is factory loaded with a 500-grain bullet that flies at 2,150 fps and generates about 5,130 ft/lbs of energy. 

To give you an idea of what the company means when it says “low recoil,” consider that a typical double rifle of 10 lbs will have a free recoil of 75.6 ft/lbs using comparable cartridges, Nyati said. 

With Nyati B.B.L.R. rounds, however, the same rifle will only have a recoil of 17.5 ft/lbs with a 500 gr bullet.  This round will be added to their other Big Bore rounds, including .375 H&H, .378 Wby.Mag., .416 Rigby, .458 Win. Mag. and the .458 Lott.  All are low recoil, target-practice rounds.
