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.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
