Designed by Pro Martusheff in 2018 the .400 Warlord is a very impressive wildcat design. Pete Contacos, of Kerrville TX., has been doing load development with some impressive statistics. John Pierce, of Pierce Engineering, did a wonderful job of rechambering his barreled action to the .400 Warlord and RCC Brass made the cartridges. Pete is loading them with Badlands Precisions 450 grain bullets. This combination allowed Pete to attain velocities of 3,156 fps and a 5 shot SD of 5.6

Introduced in 1961 the .401 Herters PowerMag was the creation of George Herter. George had the foresight to see the growing interest in a single action revolver chambered in modern large bore magnums. Seeing a need for a more powerful cartridge than the successful .357 magnum but with less recoil that the powerful .44 magnum, George developed his .401 PowerMag. He contracted with Sauer & Sohn of Germany to manufacture a copy of the Colt single action revolver chambered in his cartridge. The PowerMag revolver was well made and exhibited the excellent workmanship of Sauer & Sohn. The PowerMag soon developed a strong following, which got the attention of Remington. In 1964 Remington introduced the .41 Remington Magnum with similar proportions and ballistics.
