Factory equivalents to .30 Cody Express and .338-416 Rigby Improved?
I have a .30 Cody Express (a/k/a .30-416 Rigby Ackley Improved; the variant with the 40-degree shoulder) long-range hunting/benchrest rifle, and I was wondering if anyone out there knew of a factory equivalent--that is, if there's a factory round with the same dimensions.
As anyone here knows, it's strictly a handloader's proposition, and I haven't the skills for that. So, unless there's a dimensionally identical factory round (such as the Lazzeroni 7.82mm (.308) Warbird), my only option is to deal with a custom ammunition manufacturer.
The same question applies to the .338-416 Improved (Lazzeroni equivalent: 8.59mm (.338) Titan), as I'd like to have a switch-barrel rifle built someday.
Thanks in advance for any replies or advice.
