Re: What would you use a .416 Rigby for?
Any thing you ever wanted to. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Most African contries require .400+ calibers for the big 5. I own .458's and I have not gone to Africa my gun on loan has. The smallest thing I have shot was a chucker and several coyotes. These magnum .400+ gun are excellant for deer, elk and big bears. They never move from the point of impact. You place the bullet and they die right on the spot. No tracking wouded animals.
I've always wanted a 416 rigby or the Rem.
