  • As far as caliber I would go with a rimmed cartridge. While a rimless may never give you a problem I would not take a chance. The 470 gives you a 500 grain bullet at 2150FPS. Similar to a Lott.

    If you go to butch he will build one in 450 NE and that would be the cats meow!!!

    As you probably know I have Krieghoff in 470 Nitro. I found the rifle in very good shape for under $9000.00

    Plusses for me is it is very solid and fits me well. It is well made with a good finish. The only drawback is I find the opening angle a little shallow and it can be problematic on a fast reload. I overcame it with practice but it would be nice if it opened a little more. The cocking device is fine to me, some people do not like it.

    Merkel seems to be a good rifle. You can find them new for under 10K. People who own them seem to like the rifle.

    Keep an eye on Guns International for a good deal.

    Butch Searcy has a good following and will build a rifle to fit you. He was selling a plain model for under 10k but I think has discontinued it. He is worth contacting.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

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...
