Woodleigh has always been great in giving you the info you need directly. Email then what you are trying to do and they get back fairly quickly.

I can’t seem to attach photos in a message so I’ll attach them here. I’m confused by all the .450s so I’ll send photos of all.

I think I’ll work with a NFB load around the 2000fps mark - that’s only 15gr under the 2nd listed factory load.

Thank you very much Ben. Greatly appreciated. I will use the soft points rather than the hydros - I found the hydros just drilled through and my friend Baz 500 suggested the softs and the 450 grain Bullets.
What’s your opinion??

I enjoy using all the different Woodleigh products, but I agree with Baz. For the majority of hunting situations with big bovines, the softs will hit harder, with more devastation and quicker results, than Hydros. And they’re more affordable.

I’ve not used the 450 grain softs in .416 Rigby, but have shot dozens of bulls with the 410 grain softs, and the results are emphatic. I think the heavier ones, while not necessary, are more of a good thing - plus you’ll have lots of fun trialling them!

Hydros are good for turning little cartridges into buffalo killers, and for bulls facing / moving away.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
