416 Wby loads in the 416 Rigby
I have just started a project to build a 416 Rigby for a up coming trip to Africa. I noticed that the dimensions, less the belt of the Wby, of the Wby and the Rigby are about the same. Then some one told me that the Wby was based on the Rigby case.
I was wondering as the 416 Wby is based on the 416 Rigby (if it built on a sound modern action) is it possible to use data for the Wby in the Rigby.
If so does anyone have any pet loads they would like to share.
Good luck with the 416 project
If I remember correctly, the 400gn TSX at 2400 FPS is in the neighborhood of 5000 ft-lbs of energy. How much more do you REALLY need?
Good luck with your project JamieD. Be careful, take it slow and be safe.
For me, I'll just stick with the "book" loads. They group pretty well and eject easily even in 90 degree weather. Bullet placement still trumps lightspeed velocity every time.
