    Got guys doing various 416 HEs..

    One just built a 416 HE, just been testing it a few days..

    And using 168gr of HBMG 475 gr CEB, tested it, in good

    conditions, 2 shots at 1800 yards and was within

    a 1/4 of minute accuracy...A few shots at shorter ranges

    had same accuracy. Ed..

    Big brother Ed, that sounds great a bit hard to believe but if you say so it must be true ! !
    1800 yards and 1/4 inch accuracy.

    I wish you all the success and best of luck.

    MOA at 1,800 yards is over 18 inches so about a 5 inch group. Still would be phenomenal accuracy.

    Sounds like you have developed a super anti-anything made of aluminum beast.. 1800 yards ! That is as good as the m68 105 mm main gun on a M60-A1 MBT would do.

    That's some impressive shooting. 1/4 minute isn't out of the question for a good benchrest gun. I'd like to see a 5 or 10 shot group to confirm, but even 2 shots into 5 inches at 1800 yards is an impressive feat! Wish I hade the machinery to build a dinosaur slayer like that. Just have to play with shotguns till then.

    I didn't do the gun, just the cases.
    The great accuracy is due to K&P barrels and great stock and action....

    More about our 416 HSM from BMG brass, and
    our 416 HE & 460 HE from our 585 HE cases
    Got reamers for 375 HE, 416 HE and 416 HSM,....

    460 HE & 460 HSM are all spec'd, got HE reamer
    soon have HSM reamer...Our HSMs have a Wea type
    radius on the shoulder..

    The fellow that set up our 416 HE in an ELR rifle
    and got 1/4 min accuracy,
    They got some game out west over 1400 yds..
    .Here is the gun they set up.
    Using a K&P 34" barrel on a BAT action.....Ed

    And have got 460 HSM specs setup, the impetus for that is some
    asking about one and new great line of 458 bullets CEB now has.

    It will hold more powder than the 416 HSM and will get
    a 572 gr as fast as 416 HSM gets a 475gr.....Ed..

    Big brother Ed, you always amaze me. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and all our friends.

    This man is a legend, shared his vast knowledge ! !
    He ventured in to the dark with his " Loads From Hell " and above all shared his loads that smacked some shooters and they saw " stars."
    He deserves every bit of respect, how many of you all agree with me ?
    Best regards,

    The guys that did the super accurate 416 HE did another
    416 HE that has an 8" longer 42 inch K&P barrel..

    Used a Stiller action and same load with 475 gr bullet, as in
    first gun and and gained about 200 fps with good accuracy.
    3065 fps. Tested 2 groups of 3 and less than 1/2 min moa.

    And loads they used are not the highest speed loads
    the cartridge is capable of....Here is print with specs for
    the 416 HE reamer chamber ....Ed....
