Dittos on the use of Nosler Custom loads using the 250 Gr. Partition AND the use of 225 Nosler Accubonds. Both are devastating on game. I would not bother using a 180 Gr. bullet in the Whelen. That caliber made its' "bones" with 250 Gr bullets. My research showed that the 225 Gr. bullets hit a little harder than the 250s if there is a little distance involved. Someone mentioned using Hornady's 200 Gr. Superformance. That load does an awesome job on deer and hogs. Unfortunately it beats the he** out of your shoulder. I hand load, for our African safari last year I used 225 Gr Barnes TSX. All but a couple of the animals taken with our Whlens from Warthog to Eland were one shot kills. Mostly DRTs and or short "dead" runs i.e. 50 yds. or less.

I have had great luck with Federal premium 225gr TBBC and 200gr Remington Core Lokt. Both shoot great out of my 700 classic. I haven't tried any other brand/load so I can only recommend the above mentioned. Both accurate and Both work great on game.

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.
