That too.

In addition to the slow decline in demand for everything that doesn't look like an AR, there are fewer and fewer opportunities that actually require a rifle in .40+ caliber. And judging by the number of pristine used ones in the market, the charm of using a .416, .458 et al as a fun plinker seems to wear off pretty quickly.
When I finally pull the trigger on one of these bad boys, It will mostly be a plinker haha. Well as much as the expensive ammo will allow.

Tacticool.....:Vomit:
Not me brother. Give me walnut and blue over anything resembling tacticool any day. :D Beers:

But then again, there's no arguing personal taste I suppose.

I have both. My AR’s are tools, my hunting guns are treasures.

May have something to do with my current collection of four 375 H&H rifles vs only one 416 and one 458. Once you get past the good ole 375, the practical uses dwindle quickly. But that doesn't take the fun away from owning a big bore.

I love them all from a sigbraced 7” 5.56 to a wood stocked 458 and everything in between.
Me too except my only 458 is a 458 socom.
10 rounds of 300 gr tsx is pretty fun to light off.
I really want to turn my 338lm into a .416 rigby. But every builder I have contacted does not have the chamber reamers

Hmm interesting . Almost all distributers are out of stock from what I can see. But that is most guns, not just big bores

Guns are available if you want them. All the shops around here have them and the one I was in yesterday was like Toys R Us for guns. Pick whatever you want.

Slim pickings in this neck of the woods.

Here you go: https://4drentals.com/product/416-rigby/

Your builder of choice can rent the reamer and both gauges from 4D for $42.00.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
