Rebarreling a .458WM to .416 Rigby???
I know this is not exactly 'long range' equipment, but it will be....
Does anyone know if this can be done? The .416 has a base diameter of 0.590" and the .458 has a diameter of 0.532". Can I safely open the bolt up to accept this case?
The .416 length is also a fair bit longer but that won't matter as the rifle is to be a wildcat and is shorter.
BTW, the rifle is a CZ550 Safari Magnum.
Can this be done?
