What length will the CZ550 hold? The loaded 338-408 is darn near 4.30" long. I know it will work with the 505 gibbs, but that uses a short bullet.

Max loaded length in the CZ is about 3.85". I was just hoping for a short throat, so I would stick with 250 grain bullets. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] I have two sample .408 CheyTac sample rounds and with the base of the cartridge seated to the back of the box magazine, I still have around .70" more length for bullet length. That would seat a 250 gr. Barnes X pretty deep in the case; the base of the bullet would be slightly under the shoulder junction. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
Kirby keeps trying to talk me into a .338 Kahn, since he has the reamer already. Maybe that would actually make more sence because the Cheytac is going to need at least a 30 inch barrel to burn all that power. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
......Or maybe the .416 PGW, which is a Cheytac necked up for .416 bullets (of which I have plenty of---I have TWO .416 Rigbys). [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
