They are great rifles. Does yours have the hinged bolt release or the standard mauser lever? If the former, keep it very clean or they will sometimes release the bolt on a fast reload. Potentially embarrassing on something large hairy and inbound.I just picked up a beautiful FN browning 375 H&H from the 60's . The rifle looks new, never had a scope mounted on it. I paid $1000 Canadian, so probably about 700 bucks or so american dollars. The action is just a beauty. Nice pairing with my 338 from the same era that I inherited from my father when he passed. I agree the price isn't everything when it comes to rifles .
Although one of the double square bridge Rigbys in 416 would sure be nice.
