7mm416 Can get 3675 with 162 gr. Hor BTHP shoots best at 3500 With the 338-378 3100 with 300gr A few of my friends are getting 3200 with the 338-416 Bruce also has the 338-408 big Baer He runs the 300 gr. close to 3300 for his best groups I would not build a rifle with a case this size on anything but a custom action I have a Bat on the 338-378 and Lawton on the 7mm 416 I have seen people use factory actions ,but I would not. Also you run into trouble with case lenth. The 300gr. is great when you get it moving. Just might turn the 7mm 416 into a big Baer when the barrel goes south But it is a (BLAST) to shoot

Hi all,

It's my first post on this forum & I've been out of the game for a few years. My long range shooting consists of varmint hunting & shooting my Dan Lilja barreled unlimited .338-416 Rigby Improved.

110 gr. of H-50 + the Sierra 300 gr. HPBT = 3,000 fps on average.

Here's a photo/poster of it that I photographed & made up.

Thanks for looking.
