What if I told you ......

You can harness the power of the 416 Rigby, 416 Remington or the 416 Ruger etc .... in a cartridge shorter than a 300 WSM ?

And there is an action that was made specifically for it and you can have a complete rifle built for you, along with factory made brass available for it ?

The 416 Thumper concept is a simple one, yet very effective in achieving the criteria presented ...

Cut 375 Chey Tac brass to length and neck down to 416 caliber , shoulder angle and body taper optimized for proper feeding and extraction with ample case capacity to use modern powders that are not temperature sensitive to recreate the velocity/energy and notorious killing power established by the great 416's on dangerous game all over the world

The 416 Thumper is the first of a complete line of cartridges in calibers from .30 cal to .50 cal designed for the "Thumper" action developed by Pierce Engineering in Michigan, USA

What length barrel on a 375 version would you recommend?? Could make an excellent elk/moose/Africa rifle...
 

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
