Uh ohh, the owners of the big flinchies are shutting us small time medium bore goons out again. I guess I'll have to rush out and get a big flinchy single shot so I can be in the club again...Now where to find a .450NE Ruger No. 1???
Do go on...I am listening. What do you think of it?I just so happen to know where one is at.
I know...the Lott has my eye for sure. I like the dual fuel option..375 is considered medium..... as well as 9,3....but the Ruger No. 1 in .458 Winchester will match and they are abundant as flys..
So, grade up....
There is one at the local gun show, guy has had it on his table for almost two years as I’m sure he will deal. I will shoot you a couple pics in a couple weeks at the next show. It is a very nice rifle!Do go on...I am listening. What do you think of it?

Now that sounds like a great fundraiserFirst time I ever shot a big bore was in Seely Lake, Montana at a charity in the 70s. They had bake sales, hot dogs, beer, soda, etc but the real attraction was the 55 Buick on blocks. Shoot the Buick for a dollar, bring your own guns and ammo! I shot a friends pre-64 375 H&H and it rocked that Buick. lol
I am a firm believer excessive recoil will eventually cause you to pay a price, either physically or mentally. Of course not using enough gun can be very damaging to ones physical & mental health!!! After saying that I would rather have a .375 H&H with woodleigh or trophy bonded bullet than a .416Rigby with a unreliable bullet! Or any caliber with a unrelia bullet!
Balderdash! Excessive recoil is just God's way of telling you that A. He is still in charge and B. If something were not there to cause to cease the excitement, you'd be standing on a mountain of cases not having accomplished anything else that day.I am a firm believer excessive recoil will eventually cause you to pay a price, either physically or mentally.

KurpfalzjagerIt is not the same recoil.
Both rifles have a strong recoil , whereby the one of the rifle caliber 460WM comes quickly and also stops quickly , and on the other hand , that of a DR caliber 600NE comes slower but it takes longer. Both rifles have also a different weight.
Except for the elephant hunting , otherwise is a rifle caliber 460WM only partially usable. Nobody needs a DR caliber 600NE today , and nobody needed that before , but is still a piece of history and an experience to shoot something like that !
KurpfalzjagerI also had one , a rifle caliber 500 Jeffery.
The cartridge was not longer available at the time in the sixties. In the nineties it was time , I had one built and shot few elephants with it.
