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
