Hunting w/ 416 Barret

I am looking at a new rig for long range Hunting and am taking a hard look at the 416 Barret. anyone have any experience loading for this cartridge, shooting in the field, and terminal ballistics on game with the solids used for it?

i'd love one so much, but bullets are so hard to find.
Made from Solid Brass, the new .416 Barrett has a high BC and launched at over 3200 fps, will stay supersonic beyond 2500 yards. Sniper Country is proud to be one of the first to offer this new cartridge. The new round is designed around a sized down .50 BMG case and has superior ballistics to the big 50. The .416 takes advantage of modern shoulder angles and match grade powders, and as a result, its perfomance breaks new ground in true long range shooting.
Caliber: .416 Barrett
Projectile: 400 grain Solid Brass Spitzer Boat Tail.
Projectile Length: 2.0 Inches
Ballistic Coefficient: .943
Cartridge OAL: 4.58 inches
Average Velocity: 3250 fps
Rounds per Box: 10
