Anyone have a copy and can check something for me?
What do you want checked?
Sorry, I don't have one but the information you need COULD be elsewhere too.
I can help.
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.
PM what you need.
I have a copy too.
I’ll shoot Ben a PM as him and I chat occasionally on another forum. Appreciate it guys
Ben could you give me a load fir 416 Remington magnum with the 450 grain Woodleigh protected points please
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.
They might not have what you need in the book, but if you email them Geoff will reply fairly soon.
Onto it, Doc!
No load specific to PPSN, but the RNSN data should do the trick.
I’ll send Geoff another email - he didn’t reply to my last.
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??
Has anyone used used the 450 grain Woodleigh Bullets in 416 Remington magnum ?
If so I’d appreciate 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.
