    I just found this site and was really happy such a source of information from people who have “been there, done that” exists. Tomorrow I’m picking up my CZ 550 American Safari in .416 Rigby and am looking forward to developing loads for it.

    Sounds like a great choice in rifle and caliber.

    Welcome, enjoy the new rifle. The 416 Rigby is a wonderful cartridge.

    Thank you all for the nice responses! Picked up the rifle today and do believe that I am in love! Also arriving today were my dies and shell holders. I have some ammo arriving Wednesday so should be able to take it out to the range next week. The one main problem I have found with this rifle is that it makes me want more in different calibers! I feel a .375 H&H coming on in the very near future.

    Welcome, .416 Rigby is a fine caliber, I just used one in Zambia last year and was so impressed that I just bought a RSM chamber in .416 Rigby and am also in the process of working up a load for it. Good luck and please post what you come up with.

    Welcome aboard Jaeger717. Good choice of caliber. When you get your dies and components make up 4 dummy rounds so you can practice working the bolt to assure positive loading and ejection. Under the heat of the moment short stroking those long cartridges has caused anxious moments on occasion. Do you have any plans or thoughts of hunting Africa any time in the near future (read one or two years?)
