    Montana built me a rifle in 425 Westley Richards. Had to have the action lapped and the feed ramp redone. Now it works perfect. Seems the QC on Montana was down for a while. Love the action. CZ I have 5 in big calibers the only real problem is the trigger on the 505 Gibbs.

    If you have the time and inclination, AHR's CZ 550 replacement single stage match trigger is wonderful. I have one on my 500 Jeffery and it's the best trigger I have on any rifle including my ancient M700 BDL in 270 that was worked over by Norm Thompson who was an absolute artist with Rem 700 triggers, and an awesome gentleman too.

    Better you than me, I'm 5'9 weighing 180lbs. I have Rem XCR II in 375 Weatherby that weighs in at 7 1/2 lbs with a 2x7 Leupold Scope on it. It's nice with 375 H&H ammo, a bit brisk with full house 375 Weatherby loads (300g at 2800 fps). It's real accurate and pleasant to shoot off hand or kneeling. Got my first brown bear with it at 13 yards. An 8lb 458 Lott is another proposition in my mind. I think it's going to come back at you a bit. I also have a CZ 550 in 500 Jeffery that weighs ll.25 lbs undloaded, with a 570g TSX at 2400 fps it will set your ears back.

    Myself and a friend of mine both owned a CZ 550 SAfari in 458 Lott. I sold my and Bobby lost his in a river in Mozambuique. We both then ordered and had built Montana Rifle Company Model 1999 in 458 Lott. The winner is the Model 1999 hands down. Don't get me wrong, the CZ is a very good rifle, but the Modell 1999 had features that gave it the edge.
