    .416 Rem because I can get a barrel for it that fits my Blaser R8.

    It's not about being cheap. I am in the process of getting a 416 Ruger built. Rebarreled from 375 Ruger.Stock done, just the cosmetics to go ( if the budget allows :)). Oh by the way it's left handed

    I saw CZ was making it years ago.
    I have shot .416 Rigby in hot loads already and that is a lot of gun for me. I know my limits.
    I guess if you have brass and can reload a .416 Taylor is a good choice.

    Use 458 brass and neck it down, not as heavy recoil as the Rigby
