.470 Capstick is a rifle cartridge created by Col. Arthur B Alphin from A-Square in 1990, named after writer and hunter Peter Hathaway Capstick.

It based on a .375 H&H Magnum case blown out and necked to accept a .475 inch bullet. With 500 grain bullets, it can achieve 2400 feet per second (730 m/s) muzzle velocity from a 26" barrel.

The .470 Capstick will fit in the same length action as the .375 H&H Magnum and .458 Lott. The .458 Lott is a right measuring stick for the .470 Capstick. The Capstick has a bullet that has 7% more cross-sectional area than the .458 Lott, which, in theory, would result in more shock transfer to the game and a more significant wound channel.

As for powder capacity and velocity, they are similar, with the .470 Capstick having a slight edge in powder capacity and, therefore, a slight edge in theoretical speed.
