    .416 Taylor

    Anyone with any experience? My barrel blank arrived yesterday, welding up the new bolt handle and getting some of the action work started.
    With regards to brass-
    Fire form .338 Win
    Or Die form .458?
    Not sure which way to go on that one, any help would be appreciated.

    I'd size the .458 down...when you stretch up, the necks will stretch more in the thin/weaker areas, making them even thinner. Depending upon brass and chamber dimensions you may need to neck turn afterward. JMHO
