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.

Re: .375/416 Barret?

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?

Re: .375/416 Barret?

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.
