Exemplary Expansions & Retentions of the 400-grain A-Frame Bonded Semi-Spitzer .416 Rigby Bullets
These two 400-grain A-Frame Bonded Semi-Spitzer .416 Rigby bullets were recovered from game in Namibia in May this year. The bullet on the left passed through a Cape buffalo standing broadside at about 45 yards and came to rest just beneath the skin on the far side: picture-perfect expansion and weight retention.
The second bullet looks essentially the same. However, fired at about 25 yards, it penetrated fully 10 inches into the skull of an elephant above the zygomatic arch. A softnose bullet is not meant for this task; it is slightly more compressed than the bullet from the buffalo, but it too mushroomed perfectly, even in solid bone, and did not fragment or fracture. Impressive performance.
