    You will probably find few .416 Magnum owners on Accurate Reloading, NitroExpress and 24Hr Campfire forums. With no elephants, buffaloes and such roaming around pumpkin patches most here probably never heard of it. I bet not many even own ballistic twin from Remington called .416RM. If one can take it's substantial recoil 350gr Swift A Frame has about same trajectory as 180gr .30-06.

    I do have some photos in my old computer... the one that died a horrible death..
    Now I have a new box with windows 8 loaded into the darn thing... I can't figure out how to work it... and downloading photos from my camera has not worked yet...

    The 416s are good Brown Bear rounds and they are fairly popular up here with folks who spend their time hunting them...

    I had a 416 Taylor built on a Mark X action. Used it with cast bullets only (RCBS-350-FNGC). Was fun to shoot and accurate. Got a wild hair and sold it, now I'm into 9.3x62 Mauser.

    Wish I still had my Taylor.....

    I put one together many years ago on a 700 Rem. action. I hated the recoil and muzzle blast, it soon got sent down the road!

    I may do that, or buy a new one & sell after. Unless someone has a reamer in good shape for sale here.
    Also go/no go gauges.
    Am considering cutting the barrel to 18 inches
