I was at a gun show in Denver yesterday, and a gentleman had an older custom Remington 700 with a heavy, short (22”?) barreled (w/band), rifle laying on his table along with other rifles. The price tag stated $875.00 with one box of ammo included. The ammo on the table was a new box of Hornady.416 Remington. I looked at the rifle and the barrel was stamped “.416 Hoffman”. I told the gentleman, who had bought the rifle from an OP, that I didn’t believe the .416 Remington could be fired in the Hoffman? The gentleman didn’t know the rifle was chambered for the Hoffman and didn’t have a clue what I was trying to explain to him. I know the Hoffman was a wildcat before the Remington AND the .416 Remington is VERY similar in dimensions, but can it be fired in the Hoffman?
