NEW BUFFALO BORE APPAREL
“DANGEROUS GAME” 416 REMINGTON
400 gr. Barnes TSX @ 2,450 fps / 5,330 ft-lbs
BUFFALO BORE 416 REM. DANGEROUS GAME SERIES
ITEM 416 Rem DG 400 TSX
This new load is designed to fill dual roles. As a 416 caliber, it is obviously large enough for true Dangerous Game hunting and stopping, but with its high BC and high muzzle velocity, it will also perform big game hunting tasks out to 250+ yards if you know the distance of your target, muzzle velocity, and the bullets exterior ballistics.
For decades this was the role the venerable 375 H&H filled both in Africa and in Alaska. However, the 416 being four calibers bigger in diameter and utilizing a much heavier bullet, is simply a better stopper for those close range emergencies. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better combination cartridge for African hunting, combined with the chore of stopping an aggressive buffalo or a wounded buffalo that is fleeing. This cartridge, in terms of “stopping” ability, is a class above the best 375 H&H load.
The TSX 400gr. bullet will out penetrate all lead-based, premium, controlled expansion, 400 gr. bullets that I know of, by quite a bit. If I were hunting Africa, I’d have no problem shooting Cape Buffalo with this load, backed up by a magazine full of the same load. I doubt I’d use our 350 gr. solid as a back-up in the magazine, however, our 350 gr. solid will out penetrate this 400 gr. TSX bullet.
We were able to engineer this load to be full power+, but not to exceed factory (SAAMI) pressure limits. You’ll note that my test gun, which was made to my specs almost 30 years ago, only has a 20-inch barrel as I designed this rifle to be more of a guiding and handy take everywhere rifle than a hunting rifle. Depending on barrel internals, longer barrels will probably give higher velocities…….this is a good place to read my article on “Velocity Versus Barrel Length”.
Dangerous game ammo is best designed to be lower pressure to ensure that unfavorable conditions (such as hiking in a rainstorm in AK and getting rainwater or other debris in your barrel) will not raise pressure enough to hinder the reliability of proper cartridge and rifle function. Cartridge pressure can be your enemy, so keep it low as possible without affecting velocity, which is all about proper powder and bullet selection.
My test rifle, with its shortish 20-inch barrel, showed very good accuracy and gave an average velocity of 2,441 fps.
