    .404 Jeffrey and .416 Rigby: which is bigger?

    The 404 case also feeds easier than the 416 if reloading parts were more easily available I would bet more people would shoot the 404 than the 416 with milder recoil having same results.

    Reflex sights on CZ 550 and Bruno 602 Rifles

    Reflex sights on CZ 550 and Bruno 602 Rifles

    What I dont like about the Recknagel QD mount is that it lifts the reflex or aimpoint and might be too high where you have to lift your head when shooting. My goal was to get as close as possible to using it like open sights.
