    Recoil Mitigation

    No worries, it does not. The reason is simple: DG rifles do not recoil in straight line, they recoil upward and rearward.... I have never filmed in slow motion how the front swivels move under recoil, but since mine do not scratch the tripod limbs and do not tip the tripod back, I would guess...

    Heym or Dakota?

    Two objective criteria Unless I am dreadfully wrong, the Dakota uses a Win 70 clone action. What this means is that it is a .375 H&H length action with the feeding ramp shortened and steepened to accept the .416 Rigby longer cartridge. This is less than optimum. Also, the magazine width of the...

    Interarms vs CZ or other 375

    The typical work that people refer to is the "modification #1" performed by Wayne at American Hunting Rifles (AHR). It involves: installing a 3-position safety; installing a crisp single-stage trigger; straightening and filling the bolt handle; tuning and smoothing the action; tuning the feed...

    Comment by 'One Day...' in media 'Pelican 1150 Case'

    These are Weatherby inserts. The ones that came in the previous generation boxes that had color pictures of deer, elk, etc. based on caliber. They are one-size-fits-all inserts for all cartridges based on the .375 case, so I use them for .257 Wby, .300 Wby, .340 Wby, 7 mm Rem Mag, .300 Win, .338...

    Interarms vs CZ or other 375

    The Interarms Mark X and Whitworth are the same rifle. They are both Zastava barreled actions, like the Remington 798 was, as well as a number of other brands (e.g. Parker Hale). It is also available from Zastava directly as the M70. This is a solid rifle. The only thing to watch for with used...

    Recoil Mitigation

    Hello Grouser; Since you are looking to acquire proper habits, with much apologies please allow me to say that you are not doing it right, and please allow a few observations :) 1) As indicated by MMAL and BeeMaa, you need to use your left hand to pull the stock rearward into your shoulder...

    Wanted Federal 375 H&H Ammo Boxes

    I know that I used to recommend the MTM Survivor box, but I do not anymore, BeeMaa. On my last trip one of its latch was sheared off when checked as a stand-lone on a domestic flight in South Africa. I have moved to the Pelican 1150 that I had initially avoided because it is heavier. It still...

    Wanted Federal 375 H&H Ammo Boxes

    This is not correct, Brad.

    1st Traditional Dangerous Game Rifle

    Well said my friend. As to the CZ 550, we agree too, but with one caveat. I have never seen or heard of a factory CZ 550 in .375 H&H or .416 Rigby that did not function 100% out of the box. Rough, with scratch marks on the brass? Yes. Unreliable? no. If one looks carefully at the factual...

    1st Traditional Dangerous Game Rifle

    This is pretty straightforward Trout Tracker, you have laid the specifications... To your question "I don’t know where to begin," there is a clear answer: caliber. Then things flow... Operating words... In your post, I read "traditional" and "affordable." Caliber... You do not specify what DG...

    Crazy "Gun Case" question related to travel to JNB

    Yes, there is a solution :) Pelican 1700 You are dealing with an issue we all have, which is that while it is generally easy, even with 2 rifles, to meet the 50 lbs maximum weight requirement for the rifle case, the typical 2 rifles case exceeds the cumulated 62" maximum size requirement.

    Double rifle regulation issue

    I bet this was easily fixed the minute the screwdriver bit arrived :) No point in talking about group size until the sights are reliable, right? Just like trying to zero a loose scope ;) You likely meant a few millimeters :) A few centimeters would be in the order of magnitude of 1" (1" =...
