Not to hijack the thread, but you can't write something like that and not give details.
It's like have a cigarette and nothing to light it with.
Somebody turn the stove on so I can light this thing.
Ok, here goes.
I have just held my Rigby in 275. The stock is very well used to say the least however the bore is good without pitting.
It was sold to a H Murry Wells in September 1969 described as a Mauser sporting. Its weight is 7lbs 7 oz and has a 24 inch barrel it also has a side mount for a scope.
It will some be on its way to my friend for the stock to be refurbished.
I am very excited. As you my know I am a huge fan of the Mauser action hense my 3 CZ,s. and a Parker Hale. We think the action on the Rigby has got Waffen marks on it but his needs further investigation.

Ahhhhhh, that's better.
Thanks for the light.
Post a few pics when you get the stock back and have it all together.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
