    500 Weatherby

    Does anyone know anything about the 500 Weatherby? I assume it is just a 460 Weatherby necked up to .510 caliber, just like the 500 A-Square and 510 Wells. I couldn’t find anything online about it. Thanks.

    Short Barreled 450 Rigby Question

    Full disclosure, I already have a 23” 458 Lott and I love it. However, I’ve always wanted a 450 Rigby to get a little bit more (especially with a 550 gr bullet, sectional density is .375!) I’ve found a custom CZ 550 in 450 Rigby, but the dang thing only has a 20” barrel. I think that it would...

    Short Barreled 450 Rigby Question

    What would be the velocity of a 500 gr bullet coming out of a 20” 450 Rigby? Do you think it would be roughly the same as a 23” 458 Lott? (I realize firing a 20” 450 Rigby would be quite exhilarating!)

    Maker of "MHD" Rifles?

    Yes, that is the rifle I purchased, the one from Gunbroker. I could only find one other "MHD" rifle from another auction site from last year (serial number MHD 505-1), and then the "MHD" chambered in the unknown 416 caliber. The description for the 416 says it is an MHD rifle, but it says...

    Maker of "MHD" Rifles?

    Does anyone know who makes "MHD" rifles? I recently purchased a 505 Gibbs, and the only markings are "505 Gibbs" and "MHD 505-2". I've tried to do a Google search and haven't found anything definitive. Right now I am thinking maybe "Mauser Henri Dumoulin" or "Mauser Herstal-Dumoulin". The...

    Possible Source for 500 A Square Brass

    Could you neck up 416 Weatherby brass to 500 A Square? It would have to be done in several steps, but could it be done/would it work? Thanks

    For Sale .450 Rigby CZ 550

    Just curious, you mention that you prefer your 458 Lott to the 450 Rigby. Could you let us know why? I also have a Lott, and am looking into getting a Rigby, but mainly just because I always am wanting something “bigger and faster”. Thanks.

    500 A Square from 450 Dakota?

    Thanks for all the replies. I was just wondering if I could use the action to rechamber it to something still unique, but a little more common than the Dakota. Since the Dakota is so propietary I didn’t know what my options were.

    Bauska (BBK-02) magazine extension

    Does anyone know who could extend the magazine capacity of a Bauska BBK-02 action (or if it is possible). I have found a 505 Gibbs with a BBK-02 action, but it only holds 2 rounds. I would like to see if it would be feasible for that action to hold 3, similar to the CZ and MRC actions. Thanks.

    500 A Square from 450 Dakota?

    Hey all! Could a 450 Dakota be rechambered to a 500 A Square? Since the Dakota is based on the 416 Rigby, and the 460 weatherby (parent case for the 500 A2) is also based on the Rigby, would this conversion be possible? Thanks for any and all insight/advice.
