I have, those above calibers in my arsenal and I keep on looking for reloading data for these calibers. To my 8mm rem mag, I have a pretty good charge. I use where the Swift A-frame 220 gr, 215 Federal primer and gunpowder Norma MRP and get V0 approximately 860 m / s. Are there any of you who have a better charge with the same bullet with higher V0 m / s?

Earlier this year I bought Rem. 700 Safari in caliber 416 rem. mag. and which uses the former owner of Woodleigh RN 400 gr, 215 Federal primer and gunpowder Norma 203B. I had to inaugurate it last fall by shooting a female moose in Sweden. I have some loads to 416 r m but I am interested in more loads for this caliber.

In Sweden there is no importer of Alliance Powder now and it is very sad. I have used this powder before my 8 mm r m

I thank you in advance and hope I can help with this.

PS.
My English is not the best but I hope you understand what I have written.

Hi Ominivision!

Thanks!

I have read both these pages. What bullets do you use to Norma powder?

For my 416 rem I use 400 gr Hornady RN InterBond bullets ahead of a charge of 76grs of Varget at around 2375 fps at the muzzle. I haven't tried any Norma powder yet with this round.

TSX, I have tried the 8mm rem mag only, and I was not really happy with the ball. Right now I only use Swift A-frame 220 degrees in it and about 860 m / s V0 and where I have Norma MRP powder now because we do not have any importer of Alliant propellants. So far, it is not a moose who has run away from me after a hit by a bullet from there. Is there anyone who uses a Quick Load loads the program or something equivalent and can say what you may have for the maximum charge?
I have not tried the GS bullets. I do not think I have heard of them before.
416 rem mag I bought one years ago and about where I got some pre-loaded ammunition and it was Wood Leigh 400 gr and with a V0 of 730 m / s with Norma 203B gunpowder. I had to inaugurate the gun during last year's moose hunting to shoot a cow moose at about 50 m. Is there anyone who has tried the Swift A-frame 350 gr or 400 gr in 416 rem mag? What did you have to charge now and that V0 have you been then?

It's fine to use Google translate from Swedish to English but not vice versa. Then you get to guess the sentence content.

I practice my English with my 30 relatives in BC, Canada. One of them has been an English teacher and she is a big hockey fan of the Canucks.

Hi Elvis!

Hey Stefan
I don't know if you know about this company in South Africa that manufactures high quality bullets at affordable prices ( At least affordable here in Canada ) It is www.frontierbullets.co.za

Frontier Bullets make two lines of bullets: Spartan Series for the 416 and the 8mm in a copper solid that is cnc machined in the following hollow point flat base (short ogive), hollow point boat tail, hollow point flat base (long ogive) and finally the Phalanx which is designed for dangerous game. For the 416 also the gameranger series lead bullets that are electroplated and have a flat meplat designed for slower velocities with maximum damage.

They also make pistol bullets as well and I use the pistol bullets myself and will be ordering the big game bullets from them this summer. I am quite impressed with the quality of their products but you make your own mind up. This is just my opinion.
