    375 solid preference? Elephant considered

    Amen! And with the matched 350 gr Weldcore "soft" they up-gun the .375 deep into .416 territory (ref. Kevin Doctari Robertson) while sharing the same point of impact, for a perfect one-two punch with initial soft followed by up-the-rear-end solid on buff when applicable.

    20g or 28g barrels for my ejector Chapuis 450-400?

    I do not own one currently, but I shot a fair amount with a Browning Superposed with a set of 20 gauge and a set of 9.3x74R barrels in France way back when. Using smooth bore barrels on a double typically works great, unless you have a permanently installed kickstop in the stock, in which case...

    July 4 ... a long friendship

    Thank you All, Friends. It is an honor to be an American. I sometimes wish that some who received it as a birthright would realize, and appreciate, more the incredible blessing that it represents...

    404 Jeffery conversion issues

    No I do not, but the rule of thumb was that a cartridge carried by the claw extractor into the chamber (hence the "controlled round feeding") was held tightly enough that one could take the bolt out of the action, clip a loaded cartridge under the extractor, and shake the bolt vigorously without...

    404 Jeffery conversion issues

    Yes indeed! This has been discussed a few times indeed, and it looks like Von Gruff and I share the same sources (the two "bibles" being Ludwig Olsen's Mauser Bolt Rifles and Frank De Haas' Bolt Action Rifles) :) In this post...

    For Sale Remington 541S Custom Sporter 22lr

    I am not in the market (or it would already be sold), but I will happily answer the question and emphatically endorse the rifle :) The value of this type of full-size, quality, accurate, .22 rifles --- there are a few similar ones: Remington 541, Winchester 52, Anschutz 14xx, 16xx and 17xx...

    .25/06 Remington in Africa

    Absolutely! Anything up to ~500 lbs. Likely one of the very best non-belted calibers for light & medium PG and mountain game before the introduction of the 26 Nosler. I had a most successful PG safari with its bigger brother the .257 Wby 100 gr TTSX. It produced a long string of...

    Transitioning To A Blaser R8 - A Two Months / 500 Rounds Review

    That is sadly correct, and, to be candid, this has always been an issue with Blaser: very long lead times and unpredictability as to when US importer/distributors/dealers are re-supplied from Germany. Right now even Blaser USA refuses to quote a lead-time, but even before COVID it routinely took...
