African Big-Game Rifles
The African big-game rifle is appealing and mystifying with its romance of big Nitro Express calibers and double-barreled Holland & Hollands. From the article "African Big-Game Rifles."
The .416 Rigby
The .416 Rigby is a great cartridge for big game, but it was never produced in any great numbers. Rigby only made about 150 rifles in its proprietary .416 caliber. The .404 Jeffery, from Rigby's rival gunmaker W.J. Jeffery, was made by the thousands and issued to Game Departments all over Africa. Ballistically, they're equal. Both are excellent for lion and buffalo, but a tad light for elephant.
