I have recently acquired a Model 70 in 416 Remington as well as well as 4 boxes of Nosler ammo featuring the 400 grain Partition.
The plan is to go to Africa and use the rifle and ammo for Cape Buffalo.
It appears that some now consider the 416 partitions to be on the soft side making them perfect for big cats but suspect on Buffalo.
Hoping someone here with experience with partitions on Buffalo will share their findings.
Loaded 400 NPT and 400 SAF in my bud’s gun, same one as yours. They both were equally accurate over 4064, using Bill Hober’s Swift factory load data. Spoke to him personally. Nice guy, very helpful.
Bud’s PH liked the A-Frame better, so used that one.
From what I’ve read, not much difference in performance between those two. Both were very accurate, better than I expected.
