416 REMINGTON MAGNUM

The following data was developed in a Remington 700 Safari. The rifle has a 24-inch factory barrel. We changed the stock to a McMillan synthetic, glass bedded the action and free floated the barrel. A Leupold 3.5 10X scope was installed in Leupold bases and rings.

We used the Winchester WLRM primers in Remington brass. All groups are 3 shots at 100 yards.
