I just finished this .416 Taylor and thought I'd post a photo or two:

The action is a 98 Mauser (VZ 24) and the barrel is stainless Shilen. Didn't Ruger build a couple of experimental 416 Taylors on 77's back in the 1970's? Anyone know what became of the guns?

Lee, what case is the basis for this round? How do you form them? Looks like it'd be a killer on both ends! Mighty comforting with grizz or cape buff on the docket, though. Nice rifle!

It's a 458 Win Mag necked down to 416. Very easy to form and it'll push 400 grain slugs close to 2,400 fps.

I remember reading Ross Seyfried liking this cartridge. Said it was the only use he had for the .458, being the parent cartridge.

John Wooters also loved this cartridge.
