I have been wondering if it is possible to use a 350 rem mag reamer with a .416 live pilot, to cut a .416 Waters Express?

A local gunsmith tells me I need a custom wildcat reamer.

How will you cut the neck/throat of the chamber? The .350 reamer would only cut the body up to the front of the shoulder.

Don't try to cheap out on the reamer. The chamber is what makes or breaks a build. Off center, lop sided, you will be kicking yourself in the morning. If you do not want to invest in a reamer, either send it to a smith that has the reamer or use one of the reamer rental companies.
