    Moose loads for .375h&h

    The accubond I used out of my cz550, I used Remington Brass , win mag primers and 72 grains RL 15 . My rifle seemed to like that powder with the 260. Bit over 2750 fps with it. I recovered a few over the years, all beautiful mushrooms with good retained weight.

    Moose loads for .375h&h

    I have had great success with my 375 using the 260 accubond. Used here for moose, bears, deer as well in Namibia. They just shot as perfect as I could have hoped for.out of my rifle. Craig

    Is the CZ 550 Gone or Not?

    Yes that would be way too short for me. I tried a beautiful browning safari in 375 today with a 24 inch barrel, it shot very nice. Beautiful old rifle, 1967 and looks new.

    Is the CZ 550 Gone or Not?

    @CoElkHunter , Sorry when I said a 19 barrel I meant made in 2019, not a 19 inch

    Is the CZ 550 Gone or Not?

    I think the 416 I just purchased has a June 2020 target, it has a 19 barrel with no date on the action. Hopefully be able to try it in a week or so.

    416 Rigby bullet recommendations

    Looks like quite different powders than the 458 Lott as well. Of course my manuals do not have anything on the Lott or Rigby. I have a bit of rl 17 RL15 Imr4350 Imr4831 looks like 4064 & 3031 are too fast for it. I think 400 or 410 grain is what I will be using , so will see what works good...

    416 Rigby bullet recommendations

    Have a CZ 416 Rigby on its way. Bullet selection seems to be a bit more scarce than bullets for my 458. I ordered some Barnes 400 grain TSX. I can also order 410 grain woodleigh sp . I found one place that has a couple boxes of the swift aframe that I know are highly recommended. For solids in...

    That is great. The anticipation for that long will be hard. Mind you I have great anticipation and I have no idea yet when I will go back! Hopefully my wife can accompany me for a return trip. Very jealous!! Craig

    CZ550 in 458.

    @Angelo_orygun was that 458 Winchester or Lott that you were just getting 2020 fps? I did chronograph one round just under 2200, the rest were between 2200 and 2280.

    CZ550 in 458.

    Dug some of the partitions out of the bank backstop. Mostly clay, some stones in it . Partitions looked good, will have to weigh them when I get home in a few days. One of them looks very much like an Aframe, with the bulge . These 500 grain partitions apparently have heavier jackets and the...

    CZ550 in 458.

    I have a bunch of Barnes 450 TSX , and some 500 and 450 grain swift I am looking forward to loading up. I agree I didn't find much difference in recoil between my Zastava 458 Win and the heavier Cz in the 458 Lott. From all I had read about both 458's I was worried about detached...
