    Nothing like a typo to make your day.

    When you shoot some of those TSX let us know how they work for you.

    Yeah, big fingers and small keys don't work so well sometimes. Will do on the ammo. If they work anything like the 7mm mags I'll be happy. Those turned out perfect 4 petal mushrooms on everything and maintained 100% weight plus 3 grains of tissue stuck in the folds.

    I just ordered five boxes of Brass to facilitate the reloading to come.
    Hopefully, they arrive early next week.

    Are you familiar with Summach Sports? https://www.summachsports.com. They are getting 400 H&H brass for me. So, they should be able to get brass for a run-of-the-mill 416 Rigby:)

    Thanks.
    I'll have plenty of brass now. It's on to the projectile and load development now.

    Are Barnes, at least in .416, that hard to find up there, or is it finding them at a reasonable cost that's tough?

    Both actually. 416 Rigby's are not exactly your run of the mill deer cartridge.

    I'm sure when I'll track some down.

    I was thinking Summach could get you all the components. Also, try https://x-reload.com. They will order in for you.

    I am sure they will order more in for you. They are good to work with.

    I'm going to chat with Barnes and if all else fails an excursion south.
    Perhaps DSC or SCI. :)
