405 Winchester

The 405 Winchester, also known as the 405 Win, 405 Winchester Centerfire and 405 WCF, is over a century old and is a large bore round. It was designed for the famed Winchester lever action repeating rifle model 1895. The 405 Win is one of the most powerful rounds ever designed solely for a lever action rifle with projectiles that typically weigh 300 grains. A 300 grain 405 Win bullet is capable of reaching over 2,200 feet per second. The cartridge gained some fame after becoming a favorite of Theodore Roosevelt, who had taken the round and a Winchester rifle hunting in Africa. He referred to the weapon and the round as a medicine gun for lions. The weapon served our former president extremely well, as well as generations of hunters.

    Have used this exact .405 round on moose and elk in late November here in Alberta and the hand of God effect it has upon impact is amazing.. No tracking required, no bullets ever recovered as they could be literally heard smacking trees after exiting 1200 pounds of venison..
