If Bob gets hold of this post he will be encouraging you to build a .35 Whelen on that combination.
He knows I have a Whelen and he knows My M17 is a Whelen on steroids', a 358/38RUM

I got mine for an industry price that was just ridiculous. My dad got its twin and I think it was 1200 delivered to the FFL, 416 Rigby with Aramind stock.

Great rifles and actions to build off of, but 2500+ for a base used 550 is getting steep. However, if there are buyers there will be a market at those prices. Not too shabby for those doubling their money selling them.

I think the $2,500+ sales we're seeing out there are for NIB/NOS 550s in fancy grade wood, etc--not used base models. And according to colorado's data, that's not grossly inflated since the base model 416 Rigby was $1,100 and the fancy wood/upgraded model was another $1,100 on top of that.

At this point I feel like if I can get the NIB fancy grade wood 416 Rigby for <$2,500, that will be a decent price.

Depends on your timing, but if you're patient and watch them, you may and should be able to scoop one up for $1700 or less and it be a fair price, one sold on 10/25 for that on GB. Then again, if you simply want one and price doesn't matter as much, go for it. I over pay on certain guns (amoung other collectibles) to just have it because I want it. I don't often consider resale value a factor if I have my heart set on it and will truly use it.
