    Many moons of shooting all types of rifles have left me with a rather painful right shoulder. Some sort of bone damage. I don't shoot the Jeffery much any more but there is no way I'm putting my favorite .375 away. I have friends in the trade that can fix the shoulder with a scalpel, but I'm not in the mood..I've had more stitches in my body than there are in my woolly hunting hat. So, I tried another route and I'm really glad that I did..! What a pleasure the 'Dutchman' is to shoot now, and quite accurate as well. After re-setting my scope and the torque on my action screws, I let fly with three rounds of Federal 270gr Power-Shok. Feel like a youngster again..:biggrin2:

    That is a great solution to the problem.

    I wish we could use suppressors here.

    Good luck hunting with it.

    Looks like it is fun to shoot. Accurate as well.

    Does this mean the Jeffery is for sale?
