Question Want 41 mag encore reamed to 414 super mag. Where to start?

I recently acquired a tc encore with a 26 inch 41 mag barrel. I would like to have it converted to 414 super mag. My question is which reputable gun smiths might have the reamer and skill to do the job? As i understand its not an extremely difficult job with the proper tools but i don't want to send it off to bubba to get messed up.

Not much response here but for what its worth i got an email back from David white with a very reasonable price. No reply back from Mr bellm. Not sure yet if its even worth it. Im getting 1900 fps from 41 mag and hodgden max load of w296 under a 210 grain hornady xtp. Wish i had a copy of quickloads to run the numbers. If i got another 300 fps from the 414 super i would consider going for it. On a side note david said that his reamer is for jacketed bullets only no cast. Good to know ahead of time. Not a big concern as i plan to use jacketed but good to know.

Reeder?

.41 GNR...This was our first wildcat cartridge, developed in 1980. It is simply a 44 magnum case necked down to 41. It will put a 170 grain bullet out of a test barrel at 2100 FPS. We have taken large game all over the world with this one. Available in some revolvers and in Contender barrels.

.41 GNR #2...For the 41 lover this is the ultimate. A 445 Super-Mag case necked down to 41. A 220 grain bullet moves out at over 2300 FPS. This cartridge is great for large game, elk size and over.

I have looked at the gnr wildcats and they are impressive for sure. My problem is im limited to strait wall cartridges for deer season in Iowa (my excuse to the wife for spending money on a single shot rifle in an obscure caliber. Thank god she doesn't ask technical question or i would be hard pressed to come up with a reasonable excuse for all this ) i really like the idea of the 41 gnr #2. Sure i can push a 250 or 300 grain bullet from my 45/70 at that speed and use it legally in iowa for deer...... But i already bought and set up a 45/70 marlin guide gun. The fun is in the hunt

Is a 375 Win. a legitimate cartridge under the straight wall restrictions?
For some reason, probably the design of it's brass, it's OK in the contender @ 52,000 cup.
That should be near JDJ performance!

Yes. It looks like the 375 winchester is on the approved list for iowa. Have to so aome looking i to that as well. Just bought a mgm 357 max barrel and it shipped today so that will probably be the project for the season.

Ya im a little worried. Half the fun with this hobbie for me is accessorizing and perfecting my guns as i have the money to upgrade. On most firearms at some point you come to an end. You have the best everything your budget allows and it's done. Now the options are almost endless. This could become a costly habbit if not careful.
