.416 Barrett

Developed in 2005 by Chris Barrett and Pete Forras, the .416 Barrett was designed as an improvement over the .50 BMG. This case is unusual in that it is based on the .50 BMG case. It is possible to size down a .50 BMG case but very few wildcatters do so as the cost of the oversized press and dies are expensive.

The .416 Barrett uses a .395 grain solid brass spitzer bullet designed with very low drag. Approximately 204 grains of propellent will propel this .416” dia. bullet at approximately 3,300 fps with 9,551 ft.-lbs. of energy. It has proven true 2,000+ meter ballistic performance.

Roberson Cartridge Company is a custom manufacture of Vintage, Obsolete, Hard to Find and Wildcat calibers.
