Could you neck up 416 Weatherby brass to 500 A Square? It would have to be done in several steps, but could it be done/would it work?

Thanks

@USMA84DAB is a good source for this information.
He worked there and has a more than a few of the big boy calibers.
If he doesn't chime in soon, send him a PM.

It would be alot easier to use .460 Wby brass

If you tried it with 416 brass you should anneal - open it to .45 cal first - anneal and then go to .500 - that is how I would try it if I couldn't get .460 brass.

Also look here:

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
