I’m looking to get a 416 REM Mag, preferably in a Ruger #1, however as that is a‘unicorn’ I am open for other options.

We found a nice LH M70 Classic (stainless/synthetic CRF) in 416 Rem. Talk about a unicorn!

Not sure why you want a Ruger #1 but if you can find a Winchester M70 in 416 RM, it has been the best hunting rifle ive ever owned.

Perhaps a 450/400 is in order.
Ahhh...the Craig Boddington special. It was the second caliber offering from a collaboration between Ruger, Lipsey's and Boddington.

Even if you are not a fan of Craig, it's an excellent caliber and rifle.

They also made a non Craig rifle in 450/400. Don't ask me how I know....;)

I’m going to guess that is a former rifle of yours, rather than a current rifle of yours…

Almost certainly...or you would have seen it on the auction block by now. :LOL:

Yeah finding a bolt gun in 416 RM has not proven a problem. I’m just at a point where I’m wanting a #1, I think it will be a better spot/stalk weapon in our thick woods where everything grabs and sticks you. Also I did look at a 450/400 but I already have a 458 win mag in a #1 and with 3/4” of free bore I can load that pretty stout with 450 grain monos and still stay safe.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
