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!

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
