CZ 550 500 Jeffery Eye Candy
It started out as a 375 H&H, had it rebarreled/rechambered by Harlan at Triple River to 500 Jeffery, some upgrades from AHR and finally some finishing feeding and action work by Kevin Weaver. I have about $2,000 into it now, but it's a sweet flawlessly functioning rifle.

In the field with my youngest son and a 450 lb hog I killed at 8 feet this Saturday (my son killed a 550 lb hog an hour earlier with his tried and true 270 Win)

That is a good looking rifle. The CZs are tough to beat when you go with the bigger rounds.
Did you have to use a single stack magazine?
You should post a picture of that monster you son shot.

My first PH in Zim ( Thys DeVries ) carried a CZ 500 Jeff for all his elephant hunting. Loved it!
My 500 Jeffery has a staggered not single stack magazine, but feeds flawlessly. Here's the monster hog my son shot with his 270. The first shot in the eye knocked him down, it took two more 150g Partitions to keep him down. Mine dropped like a house fell on him, a 570g TSX at 2410 fps will do that. Here's my youngest son's hog
