The .450 Dakota is a potent .458 caliber cartridge based on the .416 Rigby case. Case capacity is near identical to the .460 Weatherby, the main difference between the two cartridges being that the .460 is loaded as fast as possible, while using maximum possible freebore to alleviate excessive pressures. The .450 Dakota with a 500-grain bullet has a muzzle velocity of 2450fps. This Dakota proprietary cartridge was designed by Don Allen and is like the .450 Rigby based on the .416 Rigby case necked up to accept a .458 diameter bullet.
