Hey DGR416,

Get rid of that remmy 416 and step on up to the Wby 416 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I've got a 28" barrel on mine and can get 3050fps out of the Barnes 350gr tsx [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] I'm just picking on you about the remmy, it's a great round. Don't see to many other fellow .416 shooters out there!

What is your load? I have a 416 WBY also!

I have a 416 Rem that uses 81grs of RL15 behind a 400 gr bullet. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Pop,

My load is 121grn of RL22, with either the 350grn swift A frame or the 350grn TSX. This load is pretty hot so the standard word of caution applies........I also have some loaded with 112grn of IMR4831 but have not shot them through the chrono yet, probably not as fast.

I have a 28" Shilen pipe on mine. I picked up around 50-60fps with the new barrel over the factory 26" pipe.

My load is 120 gr RL 19 with a 330 GS Custom bullet. It shoots great in my Classicmark and clocks about 3100 fps.

dgr416 What kind of F.P.S. do you get with your 338-378 shooting the 250 gr Noslers. The most I can get with my 338 RUM is 3058 fps. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

7mm 168vld going about 3000fps is plenty for game up to elk, effective to over 1000 yards.
