    Here is picture of our 416 HSM under development,

    which is a case we make from BMG brass.

    And second picture of experimental action with

    MRC PH action behind for comparison, that we

    are testing for it, and testing loads for speed, Ed

    Seems like the 416 is a superior bullet ballistically speaking. I'm very familiar with the 416 Barrett. Very nice performance compared to any Cheyenne tactical cartridge or smaller 338-375. How about accuracy with all that horsepower under the bullet. That's going to be the real question. At 2 miles, HP and BC is Paramount but so is Accuracy. That's one helluva cartridge for sure. Good luck.

    We will know with some long range testing.. In a junk

    skinny barrel that we just fireform in, we got 350gr hunting

    jacketed bullet over 4000. Getting the new heavy barrels put on

    actions now, to test speed with heavier 420-550 gr target bullets.

    and check extraction.. Ed

    Brighton, Michigan isn't a location I would consider a good one for testing a cartridge like yours. Where do you plan on stretching out and shooting that cannon ?

    I live east of Brinton a little 4 corner 20 miles NW of Mt Pleasant.

    Now it won't be me doing the long range testing I only do load work and chrono work., can't get around much.I just have test guns and I get safe loads and powders figured out. Few Guys doing the long range rifles will test long range accuracy. Got a real long range NE of here that Mitch and Paul use, They are East of me here in MI.

    Not sure where Paul shoots other than the midland club. It has a 600 yard max range. Grayling and Missaukee have 1000 but not nearly enough to stretch out what your shooting

    We tested intermediate action with a 700HE barrel we had here.

    Just temporary to test strength. 1000 gr over 3100..

    Action worked fine.. Ed.
