.416 Hoffman
 
 

The 416 Hoffman is a wildcat designed by George L. Hoffman, of Sonora, Texas, in the late 1970s and is based on the necked-up and improved 375 H&H; Magnum case. Ballistically, it duplicates the 416 Rigby and the 416 Taylor, except that the case is about 3/10-inch longer then the Taylor case and holds more powder. With its 400-grain bullet at 2400 fps, it is relatively flat shooting out to 200 yards. It would be a good candidate for a one-gun cartridge to use on whatever Africa has to offer. Although overpowered for most North American big game, it would nevertheless do very well on moose or grizzly bear and could be loaded down for use on some of the smaller species.
