    Picatinny scope base on a Win model 70

    With a full size rail I don‘t think so. They sit up a little high. Talley makes a 2 piece picatinny now that looks like it would work. Give them a call. They have always been helpful when I have called them. Usually good about returns as well.

    Ejection problems Winchester ammo

    I use the Winchester AA sporting clays at 1300 fps in my 28 ga SBE and have not had any issues. Use them for hunting also. Might try them .

    Why no 375 RUM?

    ADG makes brass for it. Better than any Remington or Nosler stuff. I rebarreled a Win 70 300 Ultra mag to 375 Ultra. If starting from scratch I would get a Defiance controlled round feed action. It’s a great round.

    28 gauge youth?

    I shoot 28 gauge and it’s a blast. The Tristar semi auto is a decent gun for the money. Some on Gunbroker. You can have her single load one in the magazine if she needs to gain some experience first. Walmart almost always has 28 Gauge. The AA Sporting Clays 7.5 at 1300 fps works great for Quail...

    375 RUM Any Fans?

    Built one on a Model 70. Love it. I don’t find the recoil excessive on mine. No break but a heavier barrel profile than factory. McMillan stock.

    Gunwerks Skuhl 375 Ruger

    For the price of the Skuhl you could get into some really nice dangerous game rifles. I’m not anti Gunwerks, I’ve had them do some work for me but you are paying for a lot of accuracy that you don’t really need for a 400 yard gun IMHO. The 281 Hammer is a long bullet. Unless you are using a long...

    .416 Weatherby

    I’ve seen that rifle. If it wasn’t ported and had a longer barrel I would jump on it.

    .416 Weatherby

    Reading some of your posts after I responded. If you thought the 340 and 416 Remington were un pleasant you don’t want anything to do with the 416 Weatherby. I love the 340.

    .416 Weatherby

    Depends on what you already have and what you plan to do with it. I have one and used it in Alaska as a back up rifle. You can reach out there with it when needed. If shooting 200 yards or less I prefer my Remington. Have a Rigby but it is my least favorite. If you handload you can dial it back...

    What about a .375 Wby?

    Life is short. Build what you want. You can download the Weatherby, but you can’t up load the H&H. I’ve got an H&H, An Ackley Improved and a RUM all on Winchester actions. Just ordered a Krieger barrel to do a Weatherby. H&H would be the first to go if I was selling. Get some weatherby brass if...

    458 Lott rifle build

    I would get ahold of Parkwest Arms. From my understanding they acquired the Dakota rights/stuff and are building them. They should be able to provide you with a, what was Dakota drop magazine and might even stock it for you. Their prices are more than Dakotas was but what isn’t now.

    416 rigby or 416 remington?

    I have both, Win 70 in 416 Remington and CZ 550 in 416 Rigby. I much prefer the Win 70. The rigby just feels chunky. I live and Phoenix and work up loads in the summer using Hodgdon extreme powder and have no problem with anything being over pressure.

    Rizzini 550/552 ?

    My understanding is the 552 has the side plates added. Other than that it is the same as the 550. They feel nice in the hand but I want a beavertail fore end which you can order.

    The “inaccuracy“ of dangerous game guns probably has more to do with recoil than the rifle.

    Bore tech and cleaning your rifle

    Boretech Eliminator works great and helps protect the barrel. It is all I use. Wipe down the outside with a silicone impregnated cloth and you are good. A very small dab of grease on the locking lugs now and then. If you use a brass jag with the boretech you will have blue on your patches but...

    McMillan CZ/602 express

    McMillan only offers those as a “Flat Top” now. Meaning there is no in-letting of any kind on it and they won’t do it. You will have to find a smith to inlet the whole stock. Just went through this last week with them on a Winchester Safari stock. Find someone that can in-let it before you...

    300 H&H Accubond issues

    If you have access to a chronograph I would chronograph the factory loads. Don’t put any faith in what the box says the velocity is. Next, I would measure to the ogive of the factory loads that shoot good. Then I would load some with bullets seated to the same ogive length as the factory. I...

    Which .416 and why?

    In 416 I have a model 70 Remington, CZ 550 Rigby and a Custom Weatherby. If I had to sell, the Rigby would be the first to go. Its just chunky compared to the Winchester. The Weatherby is a handful. The Remington will get you 2400 fps with a 400 gr bullet without being over pressure in a sleeker...

    Brno 602 416 Rigby shoots low with scope

    Its your scope. 120 cm when converted to MOA is just a hair over 45 MOA adjustment. I had a leupold 1.75-6 which has 53 MOA on my CZ 416 Rigby and could just get it sighted in with a couple clicks left at 100 yards. I swapped it out with a Leupold 2.5-8 which has 58 MOA of adjustment. Not an...
