You might want to reach out to Knight’s Taxidermy. I am quite sure Russell can either handle the exporting process or point you towards the right direction.
Alternatively you could contact either Coppersmith (Seattle office) or Trophy Shippers.
Also this is just for your...
If you’re able to go a bit north of $2000 budget and don’t mind a second hand rifle I would add NULA (new ultra light arms) or ULA to your search list.
pictured below is a 6.5CM
My 6.5 CM and 30.06 are both very light but their felt recoil, at least to me, is very manageable.
I have a VC Imperial RB in 450NE and am quite pleased with it. The fit and finish are great and it locks up tight. To top it off it’s quite accurate as well.
i think I have posted these pictures previously on another thread but here they are.
Here is my best hunting buddy who turned 14 years old today. She has long been retired from chasing birds but she still gets excited to go in the fields.
During her prime years.
Had her images engraved on my shotgun receiver to remember her.
I have been driving Ford Super Duty trucks since 2004. I use it to get to my hunting/fishing areas then use ATVs or rafts to get to where I need to go.
The white 2004 F-250 w/ 6.0 in the picture gave up its ghost a couple years ago. So now I have a 2020 F-350 w/ 6.7 that I drive daily.
It definitely is more involved than installing some other scope mounts but definitely doable.
I found the following information from EAW very helpful when I worked on my EAW ring mount.
EAW scope mount instruction (actual mounting instruction starts from page 37)

TALEXA3, I ended up getting an EAW ring mounts for my Rigby Highland Stalker. I am quite pleased with it.
The bases are only about 5 mm in height thus they don’t interfere with using iron sight once you take the scope off.
Good morning Shifty. I have been shooting my R8 rifles with various caliber for several years now. I don’t have high round counts for each bbl but I find them to be accurate today as they were first purchased.
I think your choice of caliber is excellent. However they have the tendency of...
Congrats and good luck with the hunt Toby.
Will you be making a replica set of the tusks? What becomes of the ivory tusks since you can bring them to the US?
BTW will we be seeing more of your famous kitchen island pictures so you can fund this additional trophy fee?
I have a Heym Express in 375 H&H and like it a lot. Not sure how it would be for Australia but for North America, 375 H&H would be more versatile in my opinion.
Having said that, if I were to get a 416 Rigby, I would rather get it in a Rigby Big Game rifle.
Coppersmith has several regional offices and my limited experience with Coppersmith is only with their Seattle office.
The POC at the office seemed less than enthused in handling my friends’ and my crates. When my crate was “accidentally” sent to Montana it took more than a week and a few...
