I have a Winchester Model 70 in 375 H&H topped with a Zeiss 3.5x10 scope shooting 270 grain Barnes TSX bullets and I LOVE IT! It seems to be a great all around rifle and its a pleasure to shoot.

I have a new model 70 Winchester in 375 H & H with a Leupold VX6 2-12 illuminated scope on it. At the range the gun is capable of putting 3 shots into one ragged hole. I used in on plains game with Hornady Superformance 270 grain SP RP ammo. I don't think of this as dangerous game ammo but it sure flattened everything I hit well with it.

With that ammo it has a tragetory close to a 30-06 and is very effective out to 300 yards. After handling it, my PH told me I should hold onto that gun because it handles well and shoots great. I like that it is controlled round feed and it seems to be a good compromise on weight and recoil. It is just a great shooter and I don't end up banged up by it. It comes with a great recoil pad and for the price I think you would be hard pressed to do better for an all around African Rifle. The only possible negatives I see are that it only holds 3 rounds in the magazine and that the walnut stock may not be the best thing for an Alaskan hunt.

I can alway find use for the scope,,It has a round count at about a 100 . I also have Brass and Re- loading dies,,

Boy that doesn't sound good Robb44, that really should be kept for future hunts. I absolutely love mine.

I like mine to, but you have hunted Chris,s property and that 375 is a load for a Geezer like me.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
