Swift??? Were do you come up with this stuff? I have cheched all my source short of calling the company (they are closed) and all I can find from either company are .416 for Swift and on the Barnes web sight, a 300gr (not 400gr) .411 X-bullet. Were are you finding this info?
Well I ordered some of the 400 grain Barnes X last week, but see that it isn't listed anymore on their website. Also got a bunch a couple of boxes of the 350 grain Swift A Frame last summer, but don't see them listed any more at Huntingdon's. I'll keep digging around and see if I can come up with place that has some leftovers. I do know that Woodleigh is still making the 400 grain in 411, it's what Holland and Holland is using for their new 400 H&H Mag. I do some scrounging and see if I can't find some more.
I just got off the phone with Barnes, they used to make .411 in 300, 325, 350 and 400 gr weights. Now all they make are 300gr. They still have 350 and 400 Available (25-30) boxes of each. Of course they have 300 also.
Just got off the phone with Swift. They used to make the .411 in 350 and 400gr. They dropped it some time ago. I told them to bring it back in a weight light enough for the .405 Win. She said she would mention it at the production meeting Monday.She has one box of 400s left if you want it. Barnes has 350 and 400gr instock. If you need either # to call let me know.
I got nervous and ordered a couple more boxes of the X's in 350 and 400.
I'm still looking for the Swift, and not having any luck. Are you interested in Woodleigh? The are quite a bit more expensive than the Swift, but everyone seems to really like them.
Just a footnote, these bullets are all designed to perform at 450/400 velocities. I think that was really the only commercial loading of the 411 caliber before the reintroduction of the 405 Winchester. The Woodleigh's, Barnes and other "Premium" bullets, I would think, would still be designed for those velocities as the 450/400 and the 400 H&H are pretty much identical.
