NOTICE OF SIGNIFICANT DELAY
On the AR475GAR and the 475 Safari barrel situation, PACNOR has informed us that they are still having problems in the test phase of their new machinery, and while our multi barrel-blank order is in the first production batch to be made, the time frame for delivery of them has been extended into August or September. When they do come, the barrels will be turned and we can finish the builds very quickly. These barrels are custom made. You can't use an off-the-shelf 24 inch barrel because the twist rate and other factors would be wrong.
Additionally, today (7/7/20) we got off the phone with LEE, and they said they arenít making any loading dies until September. So for the time being we are suspending orders on the 475GAR and 475 Safari until the supply chain gets better. You can still backorder one if you wish. The ones in the pipe will still be built as soon as we can get barrels and die sets. Iím guessing October. If it is sooner than that, then great. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Bishop Ammunition & Firearms 475 Bishop Short Magnum was designed specifically for the AR10 platform. This cartridge is literally the biggest case you can stuff down the throat of a standard AR10 star chamber. The cartridge is 2.85" overall length.

The AR475GAR throws this .475 bullet at 2,500 fps, has 5,500 foot pounds of muzzle energy. The bullet goes subsonic at 700 yards and at 1,500 yards still is moving at 710 fps and has 420 foot pounds of energy. The 475 Bishop Short Magnum has no parent case, and it is not a wild cat and was designed from scratch. Each case is CNC machined from brass barstock on Swiss lathes. The solid copper projectiles are custom made to the design and specification of Bishop Ammunition & Firearms by Cutting Edge Bullets. New for this year are copper jacketed lead hollow point projectiles made by Hawk Precision. Projectiles are available from Cutting Edge, Hawk Precision, and Bishop Ammunition & Firearms.
