Yes. But I would not recomend anything built on the this cartridge because of cost and

After owning a few reasonable wildcats (Those that are easy to form and load) then
a person can make an educated decision as to what caliber/cartridge to go with.
I have been shooting for over 50 years and was interested in the 416 Barret . But after
checking in to it I found That there was no brass available, no bullets available and the
only way to have ammo for a already expensive rifle was to purchase it from Barret (at
unbelievable prices) Over $10.00 a round making the 50 Browning a much better option.
The Barret is a proprietary cartridge and everything has to be purchased through them
including dies and anything else that you would need to reload.
The point is ; Why recomend something that has a high difficulty factor not to mention
the cost for the first custom long range rifle. In fact I would recomend a factory chambering
and in a custom package that would knock the socks off first time witnesses at the ranges.
This way the poster can have a rifle that will impress and perform with minimum problems.
Just my opinion for what it's worth.
