Re: 416 BUFF

Dgr 416

I have not completed all the testing but it appears that 2600 to 2650 is possible with a 26" barrel with reasonable
loads with the 400gr bullet.

And yes the 416/375 is worth the trouble. 375 rum Brass has gone up but it is still a lot cheeper that rigby and weatherby brass.

As I said earlier the 416 buff uses 375rum brass and neck
thinning was minimal (.014 to .015 after expanding to 416

I liked the 325gr x also and even turned the 350gr x into
a 325gr boat tail by machining it.

On completion of testing I will post all loads and data
including recoil calculations.

Thanks for your intrest [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: 416 BUFF

I also like that barrel finish. The duece on the wall is nice too!
Can that finish be applied while the barrel is in the actio n?

Yes in most cases.And as far as the deuce goes it has a 540 cu in big block with a 600hp nitrous set up totaling around
1300 hp and probably could use a muzzle brake to [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: 416 BUFF

I had to go back and look at the pictures again just to see the duece.....NICE. I am building a 34 5 window, ERS chassis, 405 hp LS6 from street and performance, all steel body that I inherited from my dad. I do not want to race that monster you got, and I do not want to shoot that 416 but they are nice to look at.
I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.

I found this very interesting 416 project and just had to give it a thumbs up.
