Load data for caliber ".416 Rem. Mag."The .416 Remington Magnum is a centerfire rifle cartridge that was introduced by Remington Arms Company in 1988. It was designed for use in hunting large and dangerous game in Africa and other regions.
The .416 Remington Magnum cartridge features a belted brass case with a bullet diameter of .416 inches (10.6 mm) and a case length of 2.85 inches (72.4 mm). It typically uses a heavy, 350- to 400-grain (23 to 26 g) bullet propelled by a large powder charge, which gives it a muzzle velocity of around 2,400 to 2,500 feet per second (730 to 760 meters per second) and a muzzle energy of around 4,800 to 5,400 foot-pounds (6,500 to 7,300 joules).
The .416 Remington Magnum cartridge was designed to provide hunters with a cartridge that had the stopping power and penetration necessary to take down large, dangerous game, such as elephant, rhinoceros, and Cape buffalo. It is considered to be one of the most versatile and effective cartridges for hunting big game in Africa.
Today, the .416 Remington Magnum cartridge is still used by hunters and shooters around the world, and it is a popular cartridge for African hunting safaris. However, it should be noted that firearms chambered for this cartridge can be relatively heavy and expensive, and ammunition can be expensive as well.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
