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.
