What weight is your Chapuis Rare Breed?
Just under 10 pounds. George was awesome helping me with this. By the way do you have your Heym 450-400 yet? If so we want to both see pictures and hear how she shoots my friend!

So I am able to buy one for less than retail and am thinking of doing so I just can’t find much info on them.

Given I owned your exact model just know LOP is critical and you will have to add weight to the stock given otherwise the beautiful gun will kick the sh$t out of you. I am 6:2 225 pounds with 48 inch shoulders and I could not fire more than 5 shots and always had ugly bruises. Details matter in big bores…believe it!

I'm your same build, have looked at the Rizzini's several times and passed because I thought they were on the light side for a 470 or 500. I've wondered how the guys with the Merkel 500's do since they're around 10.5 pounds. I know there are a couple guys on here with them.

I have a pile of never fired .35 Rem brass if you are interested. What quantity are you looking for?

For me, last August, the people in the JNB wanted to see a paper document.
