    Help needed. Hunting season about to begin, and I need reloading datas for .416 dakota. Since I'm located in Europe, U.S powders are not easy to get. Anyone have datas on Vihtavuori powders [​IMG]

    50,
    Here's a recipe that works. It is a max load and needs to be reduced 10% and worked up in your rifle.
    Vihtavuori N560 92 grains
    CCI 250 primer
    Swift 400 Grain A-Frame OAL 3.645
    2404 fps in 24" barrel

    90 grains of N160 works well too, however, it's a bit slower. (2350)
