Recently Realguns.com put a Winchester Model 70 Safari Express chambered in .416 Remington through an exhaustive live fire test and had good things to report.
“The latest version of the Winchester Safari Express was reintroduced in January of 2010,” stated the Realguns tester. “It is available in three cartridges: .375 H&H, 416 Remington and 458 Winchester Magnums. Anyone of them has more than enough power to convincingly drop the largest animals on the planet, with selection driven by personal preference and regulatory constraints.”
The Model 70 Safari Express is loaded with the features serious hunters demand. “The Safari Express features glass bedded, dual recoil lugs, forward and aft (of the) action,” reports Realguns. “The barrel is full floating. The fancy little cross bolts are both decorative and functional. The Winchester Model 70 Safari Express is plain in execution, well made and a quite beautiful firearm.”
