      i put a trijicon red dot on my double rifle as at 79 i dont see the open sights as well as i use to.they are expensive but i think they are the best.one thing i like about them as their red dots are smaller than others.covers less of the target.i use leopold scopes on my scope sighted handguns.4x or variables.bushnell and burris are also good.

        Hi Ed,

        An elephant? Holy Moses! I tip my hat.

        I got the 2-500's in a purchase of a sale of a dead man's guns.

        I would have never purchased them for myself from a store as I would have never purchased that 20 mm Vulcan bolt action repeater either, or that 458 WM wheelgun, which by the way, both now have a home in Texas.

        Do you have any suggestions on a red dot site for it?

        Thank you very much Ed.

      Von, I have never shot anything larger than a .375H&H however I have often wondered about the .416 Ruger. What do you think of the round and the Ruger rifle it is chambered in?

        Paparock,

        It is a wonderful round and so is the rifle. It duplicates the Remington and Rigby ballistically.

        I would rather have it then the 375 hh.

        You gonna buy one?

      Hi,
      You have a point - as in .375's are not big bores and .458WM (at about 5000 ft/lbs with a warm load) is really at about the top of most peoples' comfort zones ito recoil.
      However, although I do personally use a .458 it is not very versatile and not something I would recommend for someone wanting just one heavy rifle.

        Ok.

        I either fortunately or unfortunately at 6' 5" and 260 pounds appear to be completely devoid of pain receptors and can shoot my extremely lichweigh custom 458 with the same Glee that most can shoot a 30-30 with 110 grain bullets.

        Thank you DB
