Remington Magnum

The resurgence of interest in the "classic" .416 Rigby cartridge prompted Remington and Weatherby to enter the sales race with their own offerings in this bore diameter. In 1990 Remington introduced its .416 Remington Magnum which is essentially a necked up 8mm Remington Magnum case.

Although smaller than the .416 Rigby, the .416 Remington Magnum produces nearly the same ballistics because of its higher working pressure.

There is a wide range of Accurate propellants that give excellent results when handloading the .416 Remington Magnum. The 350-grain Barnes-X bullet was seated beyond the SAAMI maximum OAL but would still function through the magazine of a Remington 700 rifle. The 400-grain Hornady bullet gave exceptionally uniform results with all propellants tested.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the .416 Remington Magnum is 54,000 C.U.P.
