.350 Rigby Magnum London Best
      #374307 - 21/02/23 03:17 AM

A beautiful example of a bolt-action .350 Rigby Magnum London Best. We hand craft our London Best rifles to any calibre you desire, and left or right-handed, with a custom barrel length and profile to suit you perfectly. The finish, engraving and wood is entirely selected by you, in this case featuring the Rigby logo and English-style large scroll leaf in the arts and crafts style, with a deep cut stippled background. #RIGBY #LONDONBEST #GUNMAKING

I too would like to see more pictures. It certainly seems the goods. That Rifle is in a very useful calibre.

The .350 Rigby Magnum should have been more popular. I believe it was limited by ammunition being loaded with 210 gr projectiles. Instead 250 to 300 gr projectiles would have been far better.

Handloading today, much better.

I sure agree on the bullet weights. I always felt the 280gr. was the best bullet in my .358 Norma Mag. Shot a bunch of coyotes with them (Hornadys). Hornady (or was it Speer?) stopped producing them in the late 60's or early 70's.
I did have some Colorado Custom 300gr. RN's that also shot well.

That and from what I have read they were loaded to match the 303 trajectory so came nowhere near its true potential, similar to the 358Norma mag.

I also made up some 200 and 250gr. bullets using Mi Carbine brass, shortened and full length, filled with lead and nose formed with a seating die stem.
