416 REMINGTON MAGNUM
When you first hear the name ".416 Remington Magnum," you might be tempted to think it a misprint that should say ".416 Rigby." It's not! While the .416 Rigby held sway for decades as one of the preeminent African dangerous game rounds, the .416 Remington Magnum was introduced in 1989 to provide a less budget-breaking shooting proposition over the .416 Rigby. Remington's new offering has been called one of the most successful cartridge introductions in decades! It even spawned a renewed interest in the .416 caliber itself. It was followed by other .416 offerings including the .416 Ruger and the .416 Weatherby Magnum.
The .416 Rem Mag (along with the .458 Winchester and .460 Weatherby Magnum) is one of only a few big-bore, dangerous game rounds fully American designed and made. This cartridge is pre-eminently an African, big-game/dangerous game offering; however, it has found a niche in hunting North America's biggest bears. It has the capability of putting up to 400 grams of hard-hitting lead on dangerous targets with up to 5000 ft-lbs of energy! If it walks, .416 Remington Magnum ammo can stop it - in its tracks! Numerous ammo manufacturers offer great loadings for this powerful performer and you’ll find a number of them for sale below:
