The .450 Rigby Magnum is a rimless cartridge based on the .416 Rigby case by necking it up to 45 caliber to use .458 bullets. Both Hornady and Norma offer factory loaded ammo, Hornady with 480 grain bullets and Norma with 550 grain Woodleigh bullets. The Hornady 480 grain bullets operate right at 2400 fps with about 6100 foot pounds of energy. This cartridge was introduced by Rigby in London in 1995 and has found great success in Africa. The 450 Rigby does perform with less pressure than the 458 Lott which is desirable with some shooters.
