What are everbodys opinion on these rounds? I am wanting to build a Browning BLR on one of these rounds. Right now I am leaning towards the .411 Hawk as I can pick up a steel reciever BLR in 30-06 for a fairly descent price. I am mostly looking for a big Bore rifle that I can shoot out to 300 yards in a lever action rifle. I have chosen the BLR as I can use the Spitzer bullets and put a scope on it which the W 1895 does not allow except in Scout style form. The nice thing about all three of these "Wildcats" is that Brass is readily available. I had a hard time finding load ballistics and energy on the .416 Alaskan Express. One of the things I am concerned about is that these rounds will not have enough velocity to open up a spitzer bullet at 300 yards. I realize there are better alternatives and many on here like the 45-70, but what can I say, I want something just a little different.
I did call and talk to Gary at AGW and he wasn't sure if a BLR could be rebarreled and suggested we may have to rebore. Not real sure How I feel about that. If anyone can put together a comparsion of the three cartidges I would appreciate it.
