    Here is picture of the bolt from the experimental action,


    with our 416 HSM case in it. Note the amount of the


    base size of locking lugs, the amount of area on the bolt..









    Here is link to guy doing special 585 HE in the EU,


    Good pictures............www.585he.cz


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


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


    Action worked fine.. Ed.

    and the rest to be fireformed... So far total about 1700, 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..
