    eddybo is talking about 416 Barrett brass, necked down and shortened 50 BMG cases, not 416 Rigby brass. Don't think you read his post closely enough.

    Okay no one talked me out of this insanity. I bought a donor rifle this morning....heading over to barrets website to buy my brass now. I will let yall know how this works out.

    Any suggestions on shoulder angle? Case taper? Freebore? Name?

    I hope this goes good for you. Some of the problems I can see include the projectile for hunting applications.

    I was in love w/ this cart since I first heard of it. Then I started reading on Sniper's hide and they blasted it favoring the chey-tac. I hope to see some awsome results from yours in a few months.

    one problem I can see would be w/ the primer. Generally speaking smaller primers and flash holes are preferred for target rifles. However, I guess proportionately it may be fine lol... that's one big case.
    good luck, Mark.

    McMillan repeater. I think I have a deal on a complete .50 cal rifle built on the action I want, but have not heard back from the seller. I will probably switch back and forth with the .50 barrel.
