What is a 30-416

A local gun shop has a 30-416 barreled action for sale. I find very little about this monster, so am asking here. Other than burning huge amounts of powder, is it good for anything. By the way, it has a 30" fluted barrel, and is stainless. He is asking ,I think, $650, or $700 for it.

    Sounds like a monster. Is it based on the 416 Rigby? If so you could be pushing 30 cal bullets with up near 120 grains of powder and only God knows how fast (but scary fast).

    Yup, it is a Rigby case. The action looks huge compared to what I own.

    Same as the 30-378 Weatherby. Roy Weatherby used the 416 Rigby as the basis for his 378 case...of course the Weatherby version has the radiused shoulder and a belt, but the case capacity should be about the same.

    I don't remember the action makers name off hand, but I can find out. As for the bore, didn't look yet. I was curious about the beast, nothing more. Are you interested, as I can give you his shop number
