    Name for a new wildcat cartridge

    Not that the world needs another one, but they sure are fun. For some reason, I like the 9.3mm or .366 caliber cartridges. They offer a better SD and BC than a comparable weight .375 caliber and just don't get the big news like the .375s do because it is just short of being considered enough...

    Powders and primers for the .416 Rigby

    Just curious as to what everyone is using to load their Rigby's with? I have VV N560 and have enough to do what I need to with them, but don't know if I may be able to get anymore for future loads. I was also looking at H4831SC for the part of it being an extreme powder and won't be affected...

    .416 Bullets: Woodleigh, Swift or North Fork?

    Been doing quite a bit of reading and have heard many stories about each one of the above mentioned bullets in various calibers. I, however, have narrowed it down to one caliber, .416 as I am planning on a modern CZ550 Kevlar in said caliber. I am looking for experience with the mentioned...

    416 Rigby Sell Me On It

    Looking at this particular rifle: Thoughts, comments, or ideas. Mostly, the reason for looking at this cartridge is because the 416 Ruger that I would like to get is lacking in a lot of reloading supply areas. I can get...

    Hello from NH

    Been interested in hunting in Africa for many years. Would mostly like to try for buffalo, but would also like plains game as well. I'm not too choosy and pretty much like mature game over super trophies and racks. I also reload my own ammunition, so that shouldn't be much of a problem...
