Glad to see you on Africa Hunting, and I don't think you could have made a better choice in a new rifle for dangerous game, than the CZ 550, chambered for 458 LOTT. The recoil is not all that bad, and you will get used to it very quickly. Just do your first few shots standing, and you will be fine, and you will absolutely love the cartridge!
Again, congratulations! Welcome here!:thumb:
Thanks Duggaboy, the rifle is a whim, since I cannot hunt in Africa, prices are out of my reach:(, but I had the illusion of buy me a great rifle, because I have a 338 WM, a 375 H & H and now I wanted a Big Bore and I discovered the 458 Lott. I have to say that I am also in love "with" the 416 Rigby, but I wanted a real "stopping power" and I think that little or much as I use the rifle, I will be happy:wink2:.
A strong greeting
Hello; I show you the pictures of my rifle. They are finally made by me. Forgive you the poor quality of the photos I have done them with my mobile.
That is quite a piece of heavy artillery! Enjoy your new toy!
I'll be out playing with my new .416 Rigby this week too.
There you go!!i love the timber....the butt and its cheekpiece also boast a good shape.A great gun indeed.Get to work buddy,put it to some excercise!
Thank you both:
I now can not buy any ammo, it is really expensive (I've asked in a trade sale of weapons and a cartridge costing 21 € (approximately $ 31) so that the box of 10 cartridges in that trade costs 210 euros ( approximately $ 310). I figured it's crazy and I decided to purchase a recharge (slowly as all that can afford someone with a modest salary and family) and as I have ammunition (will be a while) go to test the rifle and I promise pictures and if my brother comes with me to a video on youtube.
P.D: The box of cartridges in question is brand Norma PH
