Glad it sorted, but its a shame you had to go thru all that to get some accountability.
All the best, look forward to the report. (y)
I have a few (6) of these rifles in various calibers, I have been very happy with all of them. I consider them very good value for money.
Great read, thanks for sharing. I'm headed to Port McNeil on the north end of Vancouver Island to take a young new hunter on his first black bear...
Thanks for this !

I have a 450 Rigby that I built on a RSM action, I still have the reamer some where if you needed it. ( only used once) free to borrow :whistle:...
Just my 2¢, but as it has not been mentioned yet. The Ruger RSM in 375; its a bit clubby and heavy. But these help with the recoiled. I have a...
I understand the temptation to be a critic after the fact, but Mr. Brickburn's comment seems bang on to me.
The only thing I would add, is fire &...
I have also used RUAG / RWS with great success. Its a bit hard to find but very very good, every bit as good as Norma & Lapua IMHO.
Lapua & Norma in that order.
( just a note *** heard Lapua was going to do a production run of 7mm rem mag brass in 2019)
Yup (y) , do the same around my place. They play tag on my roof drives me nuts!
Toby, in defense of a 9.3 x62 you may have your answer right there. They tend to be a good pound or two lighter than a 375H&H.
Which is why I have...
I think their are lots of reasons to substantiate why we hunt. But in the end its because we / I enjoy it! And always have even as a small one...
I built my 450 Rigby on a Ruger RSM, but had the Sako 450 Rigby been out I would not have hesitated to go that route. No regrets on the choice of...
Hi Rick, yes it is which is why I hunt there. In close to 30 years of hunting this area I never get tired of the view.
hmmm looks like I will be changing our cable internet provider, thanks for the info.
Welcome, as others have mentioned this will speed your plans to hunt Africa !
Great tread, very interesting to read & learn about stock design.

Best of the season to you.

Great report, and thank you for the obvious effort and skill you put into your writing.
A very very enjoyable read!
I was looking at that too, I think its a grand idea ! :D Beers:
Id be interested in a hard cover if you don't mind getting it north of the 49th parallel.
happy to pay all cost in advance.
I am curious to see if Mrs Meng actually stays in Canada or skips back to China. Any body take that bet?
Great report , very well written & great trophies , congratulations.
Thanks for sharing.
Congratulations to Father & Daughter!
Greatest challenge of our lives to raise our kids right!
Welcome from the "wet" coast.
Those living in the province of Vancouver City do not get it, but they make the rules ....
Sorry to here about all your troubles , it seems really shady to me how your hunt was run. As a British Colombian you have my apologies, I feel...
I think that is very very cool. Its something I have allways wanted to do. Take a old hammered double and get it back hunting where it was meant...
