    416 Ruger Starting Loads At Bottom 416 Rem Mag?

    I've finally started reloading my 416 Ruger using Shooters World seriously previously I've only had time for a few loadings.
    A member on here was kind enough to send me a variety of cast under 400gr so I could narrow down a mold.

    There is not a bunch of data out there for reduced loads using lighter cast but I ran across a comment that the Ruger is close enough to a 416 Rem Mag except the neck that starting loads for it could use bottom end Rem Mag loads minus 5grs.

    This sound reasonable? I tried a few 290gr cast with this method. 5gr under starting 300gr Rem Mag minus another 10% for safety. Brass looked fine, no leading and a little unburnt powder. Recoil... well its still a .416 but certainly well shy of the 400gr solid buffalo stompers.

    We all do our duty when there is not cost to it, honor comes easier then. Sooner or later there comes a day in every man's life when it is not so easy, a day when he must choose and live with it for the rest of his days.

    I've only loaded the 350 grain rcbs in mine. Shot very well over 5744 and 3031
