REDUCED TO $400 shipped to an FFL in the lower 48. PM with any questions. :eek:

I could use a Leupold score with an adjustable objective for a rimfire. A 4.5x14 VX3 would be ideal, I'd add a little cash for that. I'll consider other Leupolds with the AO, +/- cash depending on the scope.

silly question.. but are you certain its a 338-416 and not a 416 Taylor?

i went and read a little more about the 338-416.. it looks like the only difference between the two is as you describe, the location of the shoulder... the 338-416 has a neck that is just a couple of thousandths longer, so the shoulder is just barely pushed back...

Im no gunsmith.. but Im thinking if you put a 338-416 in a 416 Taylor chamber, and "fire formed" the brass, you might get the strange looking second ring that youre seeing when the brass stretches to fill that slightly longer neck area and meet the taylor dimensions..

I'd be curious to see what an ejected 416 Taylor cartridge looks like after firing (assuming the above is correct and its the 338-416 shoulder that is further to the rear and the 416 T would chamber properly..)..

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

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.
