Load data for caliber ".416 Rigby"
The .416 Rigby was developed in the early 1900s by John Rigby & Company in the United Kingdom. It was designed to be an extremely powerful round, capable of taking down large game and is commonly used for hunting applications. This cartridge quickly gained popularity with African big game hunters since it had superior penetration and stopping power compared to other rounds.

Since its release, the .416 Rigby has been used for hunting dangerous game such as elephant and cape buffalo as well as smaller animals like deer and wild boar. It is also known to be a very accurate cartridge, capable of maintaining long-range accuracy even with heavy charges when reloading.

The popularity of the .416 Rigby has endured through the years. Today it is still a favorite among many hunters due to its power, accuracy, velocity, and penetration capabilities. With proper care and maintenance, this caliber can provide reliable service for many years to come.

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.
