.405 Winchester Rifle

Post by sirohideepak » Thu Sep 01, 2022 1:15 pm

Hi,
I have a .405 Winchester Rifle and for quite a long time I am looking for the cartridges. Does anyone have any source or dealer detail?

Thank you

There was a revival of interest in this cartridge in the USA due to an anniversary of Theodore Roosevelt's African Safari. Many firms loaded these cartridges for sale due to a revival of interest.

A dealer on Latouche Road, Lucknow had cartridges of this caliber as well as a pair of used rifles a few years ago. Unfortunately, I cannot recollect the name of the dealer. Perhaps it was Lucknow Arms Co.
