.416 Long range hunting projectiles

I am looking for some hunting bullets in .416 suitable for longrange hunting.
Most of the bullets I have found have a BC of less than 0.5, I would like to find some with a higher BC than that.
I have some solid brass bullets but I am reluctant to use them on animals.
I have a single shot rifle chambered in .416 Barrett.
Any help with this would be appreciated.
Thanks Greg.

You may want to try Rocky Mountain Bullets out of MT USA.

I think they have a high BC lead core bullet, all the rest are CNC styled and the Barnes X style with a low BC that was mainly designed for the 416 Rigby.

Good luck

Ive tested the Montana bullets in 416cal, they are very accurate and expanding similar to
Match King.
