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.

Friends and Customers, 08-18-20
All shooters are being inconvenienced with what is happening to our society and the rush it is causing on ammo supplies. We have LOTS of ammo in stock and are making more at a huge volume on a daily basis. If our web site allows you to order any item, that means it is in stock—WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR ITEMS WE DO NOT HAVE! So, please do not email and ask if items are in stock. If they aren’t, the shopping cart will not take your order.
We have hundreds of customers to get orders to on a daily basis. In order for us to accomplish this for our customers we ask the following:
1. Be sure of what you are ordering.
2. Do not contact us and ask to change an order you’ve already placed. When we manually change orders it requires a lot of time that we do not have during this rush and it keeps us from serving all of our customers. If you’d like to change an order, we can no longer do that till things slow down, so simply place another order for more product, but PLEASE, NO MORE CHANGES after the fact! We NEVER have and never will take ammo exchanges or returns and then turn around and re-sale that ammo to unsuspecting customers as factory new ammo—this is not safe nor is it fair to customers who are buying what they think is new and safe ammo. No ammo is tamper proof!
3. Please do not contact us and ask for tracking numbers or “when will my ammo ship”? Our system automatically emails out tracking numbers on the orders we ship each day, however, because these emails are coming from a corporation shopping cart, many of these emails may go to your spam folder……..please look there. If it is not in your spam folder, that means we have not yet shipped. At current order rates, we are shipping within 3-5 days of the time an internet order is placed. Please sit tight. Your ammo will arrive at the same time if you track it or not and will certainly arrive later if we are swamped answering questions instead of getting orders shipped. When 30-50 people per day send emails asking for tracking information and we have to pull that information up, then type it out and email it, it takes a huge portion of our work day that we should be using to ship those orders to customers in need.
These measures are hopefully temporary and will not be needed for long as we enjoy interaction with our customers, so please, for the time being, be mindful of all those others who are also trying to get ammo during what I think is a societal meltdown/emergency. Hopefully, we can serve you all. We want you and your families to be armed and safe and we wish you the best during these trying times. My biggest concern is that things will worsen yet more, for a while. Until things straighten out in our government and society, we will have to streamline our customer service in order to serve all customers. Thank you for your understanding.
Good shooting and God bless,
