Otherwise the 416 Rigby is ready to go with some 410 gr Woodleigh softs and solids. Also picked up some Norma Barnes 400 gr brass solids from an estate sale for...

    .45 ACP recommendations

    Been reading this for a minute. You say you are a shotgun and rifle guy. How accurately do you shoot those weapons? Do you shoot them better because they fit you? If they do, then pistols are the same. What is comfortable in your hand and proper grip, should shoot best for you. You also...

    Good day Johan! Please send me what OAL that you are expecting to use with the Norma Oryx via private message and hopefully I will be able to transfer some data to you.

    6.5x55mm for Plains Game?

    Interesting, maybe some of the laws are beginning to change. However, I am looking to hunt Namibia, Zimbabwe, and/or Tanzania. Last time I looked, minimum calibers in those countries were 7mm for plains game. Good hunting on the PGs. My heavy load for the 6.5x55 SE is a 160 gr Woodleigh PPRN...

    6.5x55mm for Plains Game?

    Love my Tikka T3 SS Lite in 6.5x55 SE. I reload all of my own ammunition for it using VihtaVuori N550 and VihtaVuori N560 as powders; bullets ranging from 85 gr to 160 gr from Sierra, Hornady, and Woodleigh. Everything that I load for that rifle shoots at least MOA using a 3-9x40mm Nikon...

    Primers for 404 Jeffery

    Just because the powder column is so big, anything with a capacity of more than 80 grains should use a magnum rifle primer. I use them in my .416 Rigby along with a very slow burning magnum powder (Vihtavuori Oy N165). Good luck and stay safe!!!!!
