I loaded 92 grains of CFE223 behind the 350 grain TSX, all ahead of Federal 215 primer

Sir John,

Wherever you are going, that there load ought to gitterdun, and it makes your rifle self-cleaning.
So stay out on the trail as long as you like, just shoot it occasionally and keep some tape over the muzzle
to keep the rain, snow, and dirt daubers out of the bore.

Pretty close to a top-velocity load for the .416 RemMag with a 24" barrel.
Average chrono vel. = 2575 fps.
If at 5 yards and BC = 0.345, then MV = 2588.
Maybe the one low reading is a fluke and your MV is real close to 2600 fps.

I will stick your load data in my Oxford Binder on the .416 RemMag.
I still have one rifle so chambered, that I have not rebarreled to .458 WM+.

Thanks for the data jwp !!
That is really good to know.
Were the bullets tumbled with any slickems like HBN ect. ?

All I need is to find a brick of primers and I can do some loading again.

COOL. !
Thank you. I had wondered how cfe223 would work in the rifles I shoot. How is it for accuracy ?

Looks like a very nice buff Ed. I hope to hunt old nyati some day.

I liked the old original Barnes X-Bullet 350-grainer.
I used it in a Ruger No. 1 .416 Rigby at about 2700 fps MV
to take a water buffalo steer that weighed about a ton at range of about 100 yards.
It was at a Tennessee game farm in September 1999:

Above, my laser range-finder operator is on the right.
We gave thanks to the water buffalo with the Crocodile Dundee Water Buffalo Salute.

On same grocery trip I also took a fallow deer at 342 yards, with same bullet, and laser range-finder.
It was a doe weighing barely 100 pounds.

I do believe the TSX version or even TTSX version of the 350-grainer can do the same in a .416 Remington,
only requiring a higher pressure than the .416 Rigby to go 2700 fps MV.
SAAMI allows up to 65,000 psi in the .416 Rem.Mag.
How convenient and reasonable.
The 350-grain/.416-cal. TSX is a do-all bullet, just saying, again.

Big Red was his pet name at the farm and he wore ear tag number 8, in September 1999.

The next buffalo I killed was in Botswana in late July 2001 using the Ruger M77-RSM .416 Rigby
with a 380-gr GSC FN at barely over 2500 fps MV.
The bullet zipped right through that cape buffalo smashing big shoulder bone and heart and lungs.
That load could be duplicated with a .416 RemMag, if you could find the bullets.
That was about 6 weeks before all hell broke loose on 9-11-2001.
I was working in Connecticut then, right across Long Island Sound from where it happened,
about 50 miles away.
I was making rounds in an ICU and watched it happening on a comatose patient's television.
HELL I WAS ALMOST THERE, paraphrasing Elmer Keith.
