Powerful, side-by-side, big game hunting rifle that can bring down the largest targets at mid range. Carries limited ammunition.
A break-action, double-barreled rifle ideal for hunting large game, the Nitro Express was often used by British colonials on elephant hunting expeditions. It is similarly effective in bringing down buffalo, bear, and other large game found in the Americas. Though the Nitro Express has a short range, its shot is incredibly powerful, with an equally powerful recoil.
The Nitro Express Rifle is actually named for its cartridge, called as such because of the bullet velocity, which is fast as an express train, according to James Purdey, who coined the term, and because the propellant used is cordite, which is made of nitrocellulose and nitroglycerin.
