Rigby

This is a proprietary cartridge introduced in 1911 by John Rigby for his magnum action Mauser rifles. Both the rifle and cartridge were well received in Africa where they established an impressive record on dangerous game.

The .416 Rigby is a large case. The combination of a large case capacity and a low working pressure reduces the selection of suitable propellants drastically.

There is no SAAMI pressure limit for the .416 Rigby. Federal factory ammunition produced 44,000 P.S.I. in our pressure barrel. These loads do not exceed that pressure.
