  • I am very interested in the Montana action project. Is this the PH action type? How much did it cost new? I usually like a Mauser action and I think the Montana is such. I do not have any Montana actions. What can you tell me about them?
    Dave,

    If you still have the Brockman pop up sights and are willing to part with them for a quick profit, I am interested.

    I had a pair on a Lott, however, the base screws sheared and I lost the rear sight.

    If interested: PM me
    im looking to do a conversion from 375 H&H to 404 like you did, what exactly was involved and if you don't mind what was the cost of the project.

    I fit the front and rear bases and solder them in place. Cost was my time. I then cera koted the barreled action and put it all back together. It feed well. But you may have to do a little file work on the action side rails if it doesn't feed properly.

    Total cost for me was I bought the rifle for 1000, 600 on rebarrel, 195 for sights, 35 for materials to finish So about 1850 total
    Yes I reload, but have never tired 350gr only 480-500gr. Headed to south Africa Limpopo region for Cape buff and cape eland.
    Thank you for that Dave. On your 450NE have you got any experience with 350g soft nose bullets, that is assuming you reload? I just got some in and am battling to find data. Currently running 500g Hornady solids with 90g to give 2200 ft/s, also gonna try some 450g Barnes X.
    Regards David
    Hello AzDave, I have a 450NE in an over under double. Been thinking about a second set of barrels for it to shoot smaller game and possibly with a bit more range. I was thinking of a 9.3x74R and noticed you have both these calibers, what do you think?
    I have a 9.3x62 in bolt action therefor this helps reloading material.
    Regards

    I really like my 9.3x74R Chapuis double. Plenty of power regulated very well. I am taking it to Africa this year as a backup for my 450NE. I would reccommend it as a second set of barrels. I can share some load data for swift, woodleigh, and northfork bullets. Dave

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
