The .470 Nitro Express (N.E.) is a powerful centerfire rifle cartridge designed for hunting big game in Africa and other locations where large and dangerous game is found. It was introduced in the early 20th century and quickly gained popularity among professional hunters and sportsmen.

The .470 N.E. uses a large cartridge case that is capable of propelling heavy bullets at high velocities, which makes it effective against large and thick-skinned game animals such as Cape buffalo, elephant, and rhinoceros. It is known for its excellent stopping power and reliable penetration, making it a popular choice for professional hunters.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
