    I want to say .577 Tyranosaur was more than that when it was actually still produced by Norma.

    I would imagine that if you can afford an authentic H&H NE rifle then that ammo is no big deal.

    I'm more impressed by the Garrett .45-70 Exiter at $180/20, considering you can get a decent .45-70 rifle for about $450.

    You could have a .470 for considerably cheaper than an H&H too :dunno:

    And here is why the Garrett Exiter is so expensive

    Our Exiter Ammo features the amazing 500-grain Speer Tungsten Solid and is recommended for use against elephant, rhino, and hippo. With a core harder than steel and heavier than lead, this Tungsten Solid is simply indestructible and provides reliable penetration of the heaviest thick-skinned game. Given the enormous size of these species and the extraordinary cost of permits and licenses, we believe only the very toughest bullet is the proper choice, and this tungsten solid is simply without peer among the premium bone-busters.




    What primers are used in Garrett Exiter Ammo?

    Our 45-70 Exiter Ammo uses military-spec small rifle primers due to the smaller meplat of the bullet used in the Exiter Ammo, the Speer Tungsten Solid. This small rifle primer, installed in custom nickel-plated small-primer brass, provides the same degree of protection against magazine ignitions as is found in our Hammerhead Ammo with its much broader meplats and military-spec large rifle primers, and delivers excellent ignition-performance at those temperatures characteristic of elephant, rhino, and hippo habitat.

    Considerably cheaper true... but you're still in the neighborhood of $10K for a "cheap" one.
