New rifle project opinions

So guys I have a new project that I can't get out of my head. A 15lb .416 weatherby shooting the 375 grn cuttingedge bullets with a B.C of .825. I'll push them 2800fps.

I've been wanting to do a .416 project myself. Sounds like a good idea.

416 how big is the case has to be a lot of powder but sounds like a fun build to take on

If it is intended for long range hunting be careful with the weight (Mose states wont allow
rifles over 16 pounds scope and all).

The 416 is a beast and can be very accurate.

It is one of my favorite big bore calibers.

If you are looking for the ultimate 416 the 338/416 Excalibur would be the ticket because
of case capacity or the 505/416.

These big cases will hold an average of 135 to 140 grains of powder and should be able to
push the big 416 bullet close to 3000 ft/sec.

Sounds like an interesting project. Keep us posted.

Je Custom ,
You are exactly right. I am going to keep the weight at 15 lbs. Im thinking 32in barrel, a big muzzle break. Now I need to decide if I'm going custom action or buy the MrkV weatherby.
