My advice for the 416 RM is stick with loads that are around 2350 fps. No need for more, and it's easily reached with the powders listed in most manuals. I use 77gr of Varget behind a Swift A-frame and get around 2350 in warm temps. Extremely accurate as well.
I shot a Buffalo with a full frontal shot, and the bullet ended up in the rear intestines. Absolutely devastating.

Norma 203B has been an excellent performer for me in the .416 Remington and .404 Jeffery.

My chronograph results are hiding in some dark place as its been a number of years, but I was working at 2350 to 2400 plus a bit with all those loads...I worked out those loads in my 416 Rem mod. 70 Win. custom and my 404 Mauser custom rifle...I challenge the BS about RL-and most any powder being temp sensitive....I cooked guns on the hood of my pickup for hours in 110 to 120 degree temps for 2 to 3 hours and never could raise the ugly head of temp sensitive...???? I can only go with my opinion, but there is a world of experts out there making claims that are unsubstantiated these days..so I take a lot of claims with a grain of salt and suggest folks try them before accepting them as fact, and the world of the double gun is the most abused..Many Africans have looked me in the eye and claimed Africa is hotter than anyplace in the USA, well guess what?, they have never been on the Texas, New Mexico and Arizona on the old Mexico border in July and August where temps rise to 120 or more at times..

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
