I've done this as well (FN & Parker Hale) quite economically and have been pleased with the results. Both rifles had been 3006s
Had one of the best years I've had in some time. Took 5 weeks off shift and did my 5th back pack Stone sheep hunt, and my annual moose hunt (...
Nice ram (y)
Nicely done ! congratulations.
I load the 260 AB with RCBS die and norma brass without issue? I would see if any one you know has a different die you could try?
Hope it works...

Welcome from the south end, Victoria.
Like many I don't often shoot game at extended ranges. But I did once in my youth drop a bull moose at 500 yards ( measured on a map & before I...
My first African hunt was with Jaco, it was with out a doubt the best hunt I ever had. We laugh so much Im surprised we didn't scare all the game...
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 !

Gert I would have a look at this fellows site BuckStix. 12 pound mt howitzer for hunting deer. Its worth the read. ( and any other members needing...
Welcome Sir !

Gert, your a mischievous fellow , good luck. (y)
Built one out brass once, blew the side off it (too much powder)...:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:...
, as do I ...what's wrong with us? :LOL:
that's her, I very much like that design and rifle ! My hunting partners rifle in 375, shoots 1/3 MOA at 200m quite impressive; and devastating on...
I personally like it, I think as Mr Gruff sagely stated it shows the stock makers skill. An no doubt its a individual taste. But I think always...
As many have said; amazing story thank you so much for sharing!
Much respect for your stamina and skill in the hunt and your prose.
yup these are my mixed terrain boots, excellent, but insufficient support for mountain operations. The stiffest leather boot I could find was...
I hunt with meindl and danner. But when goat & sheep hunting I use Hanwags. Very very stiff but excellent support and construction. ( and a...
Rock solid Advice X2 (y)
And don't forget the post hunt report..:)

John is a pretty good...
Welcome Sir, I have family in Charlottenlund , very nice country you live in.

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 !

Best of the season to you.
