    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.

    Hi Dave, they sound exactly what I'm looking for.:)
    Do you you have a link or email address as to where I can get hold them, as I have tried two email address's & haven't had a reply yet.
    Thanks Greg.
