Jim, Vigin Valley Custom Guns makes a 416vvc. It's similar to the 416 barnes but improved. I have one in a 15" encore.
I can get about 2075fps with a 350speer. VVC doesn't have it listed and I had to get my own Dies made (CH&4D).
I have fire formed 284 brass in this chamber (to see if it would work) but the base has a bulge of about 0.010". Shortened 376 styre brass works great.
Also the Cartridges of the World 8th edition has the case dimensions and a couple of loads(300-400grain bullets) for the 416 barnes.

Enforcer, I don't really know the case capacity in cc. The dimensions of the case are: base Dia. 0.504", Shoulder Dia. 0.491", Rim to shoulder lenght 1.660"+/- , neck lenght about 0.398", overall case lenght 2.100". I weighed 58 grains of water with a speer 350 seated to 2.825" (the cannelure is below the neck). 64gr. of water with a 335gr beartooth seated the same ( two grease grooves exposed) and 76.7 grains of water fill to top of case (no meniscus). I hope that helps. By the way I was using starline brass I believe Win. and Rem. hold more (thinner brass).
