    Wonder if a PTRD with 5 ft long barrel is stable enough

    for ELR , rebarrel to 416 and use our 416 HSM, 500 gr bullet ....

    .Here is up north guy using 585 HE in a PTRD with inserts,

    Light load.....Inserts are in the shape of the 14.5mm case....





    HERE ia video, 585 Hubel Express and water jugs - slow motion

    750 gr with 155gr RE17, just a moderate load.....Ed

    20mm Vulcan is a big case that works ok, without having

    the sides made too thick...They have thinner sides

    than smaller cases guys are getting that have the sides

    made too thick and won't extract easy or work with high pressures.


    Here Barnard P Cheytac bolt that would do for our 416 HSM..Ed......

    Got guys doing various 416 HEs..

    One just built a 416 HE, just been testing it a few days..

    And using 168gr of HBMG 475 gr CEB, tested it, in good

    conditions, 2 shots at 1800 yards and was within

    a 1/4 of minute accuracy...A few shots at shorter ranges

    had same accuracy. Ed..

    The fellow that set up our 416 HE in an ELR rifle
    and got 1/4 min accuracy,
    They got some game out west over 1400 yds..
    .Here is the gun they set up.
    Using a K&P 34" barrel on a BAT action.....Ed

    And have got 460 HSM specs setup, the impetus for that is some
    asking about one and new great line of 458 bullets CEB now has.

    It will hold more powder than the 416 HSM and will get
    a 572 gr as fast as 416 HSM gets a 475gr.....Ed..

    The guys that did the super accurate 416 HE did another
    416 HE that has an 8" longer 42 inch K&P barrel..

    Used a Stiller action and same load with 475 gr bullet, as in
    first gun and and gained about 200 fps with good accuracy.
    3065 fps. Tested 2 groups of 3 and less than 1/2 min moa.

    And loads they used are not the highest speed loads
    the cartridge is capable of....Here is print with specs for
    the 416 HE reamer chamber ....Ed....

    Away for a time, sickness..
    Here is print with chamber reamer specs for the
    416 HSM chamber..There are 3 base sizes we have,
    depending on actions used. Got reamers for all 3..
    Got cases for all of them..
    Our cases are public domain, so that is why I post
    info and specs. To help guys do their own setups.
    Manson makes reamers I use,,, Ed.

    585 HE w/ 650gr bullets @ 3000fps, and fabricating parts to handle it all? You guys are having way too much fun.

    Looks like a great project.

    to check in intermediate size actions, with the longer, stronger, bolt lugs, Ed..
