    Varget (ADI2208) or H4350 (ADI2209) in .404 Jeffery

    The Woodleigh loading manual list charges with Varget in the .404 Jeffery for all bullet weights. If for some reason I could not source Norma 203B or RE15 I would have to give it a try.

    458 Lott ate my QD Warne rings

    Most HUNTING rifles I have seen in .40 caliber on up including mine, use a barrel band eye for sling attachment. That ain't going to work with any bipod I have ever seen. There is usually no swivel stud on the fore end to bite the support hand during recoil. I am the first to admit that I...

    458 Lott ate my QD Warne rings

    I have not had any issues with Talley detachable rings (screws not lever) on my CZ 550's but the .416 Rigby and .404 Jeffery are more gentle than a .458 Lott. I cannot attest to the strength of the factory CZ rings but when handling them they didn't really inspire confidence. Personally I want...

    Hunting boots

    I do not have experience with whatever the current US issue desert boot is. The boots pictured are what I have worn in Namibia and Botswana during the months of November, December, January, and into February one particular year. It does get warm in those places that time of year. I usually...

    Please Recommend A 220 Grain .30-06 Springfield Factory Load

    It will be possible to find some older stock of 220's laying around for years to come but currently Federal doesn't show that loading on their website. Remington list their 220 in that caliber but take that with a grain of salt.

    Please Recommend A 220 Grain .30-06 Springfield Factory Load

    Hello Professor, The only two major ammunition companies in the US that loaded a 220 grain hunting bullet in the .30-06 in recent history would be Federal and Remington with their standard cup and core bullet. I did not see the 220 listed on the Federal website. It may be discontinued? I have...

    For Sale Sako Brown Bear 416 Rigby With Extras

    I prefer a length of pull that measures 13.5 on my rifles. I can't remember exactly what my Sako Brown Bear in .375 started out at but it wasn't much longer. It was easy enough to get the 13.5 by removing a little bit of the factory pad. If it were a larger caliber I would want a bit more...

    7x57 Whitetail Round

    I have had good luck loading several different calibers with PPU brass. I came into several boxes of these and plan to use it on whitetail size game. I don't know if this line is being imported to the the US anymore.

    In case anyone is interested there is a used Heym Martini in .416 Rigby listed on Gunbroker with a stating bid of $6700. I have no dog in the fight but it would be worth a look for someone in the market.

    Got the CZ blues

    I picked up a CZ-550 several years back factory chambered in .375 H&H. I mounted a scope using Talley rings and could not get a bore sight to save my life. I took the rifle to the range for verification because there was no way it could not be that far off. It was. I made a call to Talley...

    Laminate Stocks on Dangerous Game Rifles

    I do not know who manufactured that stock on the top rifle which is chambered in .416 Remington. I wish I knew what company made it, best I have ever seen. The middle rifle is a CZ-550 .404 Jeffery with factory CZ laminate stock. Bottom rifle in .404 Jeffery that a Boyd's stock was used when...

    Laminate Stocks on Dangerous Game Rifles

    The stock pictured on the .416 Rigby is a factory laminated stock from CZ. They discontinued that offering and sold the remaining inventory through their web store. The one I bought for a .416 Rigby came complete with cross bolts and recoil pad. I can not remember the exact cost but you...

    Any tips for using iron sights with failing eyesight?

    Getting old ain't for sissies but, it beats the alternative. A rifle used for anything other than varmints just doesn't look proper without irons. I can even remember being able to actually use them. A member of this forum stated that the bead Sako uses on their Brown Bear is far too big...

    There was a time when I wanted to hunt a bighorn sheep, Rocky Mountain or Desert it didn't matter. I would put in the draw for most of the states that offered one or both species. The states that come to mind are, Wyoming, Montana, Oregon, Washington, New Mexico, Colorado, and Arizona. I am an...

    375 H&H rebored to 404 Jeffery

    I couldn't afford a Dakota Traveller takedown in .404 Jeffery so Mr. Selby is in the process of turning my Parker Hale .404 into a takedown. If all goes to plan that .404 will be the only rifle I ever take to Africa in the future. Randy is an old school no BS craftsman.

    How to have your day go to crap

    This picture was emailed to me by NEGC when they received my 1904 Portuguese 7x57 when I sent it to them to have an EAW side mount installed. I am not saying that my rifle is in the same class as yours but I would have felt better if I had been the one to break it.
