The load drove the 400 grain bullets to around 2325fps. It was a frontal shot at approximately 75 yards. This load is very mild in my rifle, but did a great job! I also took 7 more animals with my Kimber 375 H&H with factory Federal Premium 300 grain Swift A Frame ammo. All one shot kills, except for the Waterbuck, which I gave an insurance shot, just before he was going down. These bullets gave wonderful results, and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Also a huge thanks to Pawprint Safaris for a great hunt!

    Here is the 400 grain 416 Bullet taken from the buffalo. It penetrated the chest, 20180729_145945.jpg destroyed the heart and lungs, and was found in the rear of the intestines.

    Excellent bullet performance on one fine buffalo! I really like those deep curls!
    All very good looking trophies! That impala looks exceptional! Very handsome!
    Congratulations! I guess you’re a little sad to be back?

    I have used the Swift A-Frames for PG in 338win mag, 257R, 257W and 30-06 all with excellent results and nice bullet expansion.

    Man, you got some nice trophies. Congrats on a very successful hunt. That Toy looks like it's loaded down pretty good. So when are you going back, to Africa, not work? :D

    Nice. Congratulations on your hunt. I'm sure that you're planning on an encore appearance.
    I'm also a 416 Remington fan and enjoy it. Though decidingly over gunned, I just shot two woodchucks with it, just to stay safari ready.
