Now that has to be an attention grabber!
Murphy, you reload and expand into the next level sooner than most of us, have you had a chance yet to either do a .416 Ruger chambering or reload for one that has one chambered so?
I am particularly interested in a 40 bore and over, never really owned one thus far not including my .457WWG that I just was happy to give away to my younger brother-whew! darn porting!
I have a VZ24 that I have readied for a barrel, was considering a 9.3 x 62 and have a L-W 23.5" prechambered coming in the mail soon but that could always be in check and save the barrel for another action I have sitting around - a 1935 Modelo Peruvian 98.
I am curious about the ballistics and am uncertain what can be achieved in comparison to say the .416 Chattfield-Taylor.
Rail work with a beltless over a belted has got to be a plus. I have quite abit of .338 win mag. brass around but ..... this Ruger case has me leaning toward that idea.
Recommended bbl. length 22"? What is the shortest bbl. without a rip-snorting butt stomping recoiling son of a gun that can still deliver in a pinch?
any info and insight, appreciated.
