    Experimental intermediate size action with the Montana PH, for comparison.

    It is an experimental action for our 416 HSM, to do our speed testing with

    and get a better action than Cheytac size actions, for bigger case ELR use,

    without going all way up to more expensive, huge actions.

    It is big long round style action that can take our 416 HSM, almost

    1.6" diameter action and .800" bolt, with locking lugs nearly as big as most

    BMG actions.... ED

    .....


    It is possible rig up holders for many types setups.,

    About shellholder supply for big cases,

    RCBS and others make slip in holders for shotgun cases

    that can work or reworked for big rimmed rifle cases...

    Here are various sizes.......

    16ga-- .810" rim,........ 20ga-- .760" rim,....

    24ga-- .725" rim,....... 28ga .680" rim....

    Ch4d and Buffalo Arms also have these larger shellholders...


    We fireform the 416 HSM with 65 gr of medium speed

    surplus powder, with rest of case filled with farina

    and grits mix, with a play dough plug in the neck.

    It is loud, so we shoot it into big container through a barrel size

    size hole, so the sound is muffled, so it doesn't deafen us..


    It is great getting more companies making 416 caliber bullets,

    long target and bore rider bullets. Ed..

    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....

    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..
