Hi guys,

Looking to see if anyone has loaded the 350 grain TTSX in the 416 Rigby. I know some guys have used the 300, 350, and 400 gr. TSX and Barnes evens offers the 400 grain TSX load as a stand alone loaded cartridge.

If anyone here has loaded the 350 TTSX, I'd be curious if you could share your results and thoughts on how if performed, whether by numbers & pictures from practice or in the field.

Thanks!

I'll be "working up" this exact load, as soon as I can get my hands on some bullets.

I'm staring at my 'cart' tempted to finalize the order but felt I needed the little extra push. Maybe I should take my own advice and just 'push' the submit button. Rather have them than not have them.

i dont have a 416 Rigby but i LOVE the 300gr Barnes in my 416 RM. my load pushes the 300gr TSX at 2650fps with excellent accuracy and has been used on a variety of game.

the 350gr TSX would be a fine expanding bullet in the 416 Rigby and would be suited for all game where an expanding bullet will be used.

This is a possible choice for a '18 trip for PG. Would like to get it hunted on some of the larger PG before it makes a return trip for some DG.

thanks for the input!

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA
