For sure it would be a barrel burner! I believe that the .500 Jeffrey case is in between the 416 Rigby and 505 Gibbs (Cheytac) in size and capacity. Interesting.......

I caught that one too. The animal he was shooting at just froze and then fell over.

He said it was a .30, but then kept saying .338____. Pigman is kinda out there.

I love pigman, my kids and i watch him every week, i too have been trying to get some info on that gun. i think he has both a 300 and a 338 version, he shoots 208 grain hornady amax. i think the advantage is that you can use a lapua action instead of the cheytac action and get similar performance with a lighter set up. i own the 338 cheytac version and it weighs alot around 14 pounds scoped. i just sent pigman an email hoping that someone will respond to my email about the gun.

Haha yea pigman thats it! I was very impressed with the long range shot with that stout of a wind! That speed goat had no idea what hit him. Sure looks like a fun rifle to shoot thats for sure! I bet they cost a grip tho.... be interested to findout what "pigman" says!
