Also how do you like the Sabatti?
I’ll attempt to tread lightly in answering this question to avoid inciting another Sabatti debate. I purchased mine used and it is a cabela’s gun. It had the original regulation target and I inspected the bores to ensure there was no grinding. So far this seems to be one that shoots well. I definitely acknowledge there are ones out there that don’t. Action is solid and triggers not bad. If you have one that is properly regulated I think the real question comes down to longevity. There are some great posts in this forum that get into comparing the craftsmanship and design of the sabbati’s regulation wedge vs guns in the next tier like the Krieghoff. I would agree that this is the weak link and probably doesn’t have the strength of the better designs. That said, I haven’t experienced or seen indication of any problems yet. I purchased because I’ve always wanted to try a double and thought I could tinker with this and learn some things before deciding to invest in a next tier gun. Overall I’m happy and even though I now have the Krieghoff, I’m not looking to get rid of it.

OMG! Maybe AH should start a Big Bore Addiction 7 Step Program as one of their forums?
They do...
Step 1: Find AH on the web and click the link.
Step 2: After reading a while sign up for a username because you have a question.
Step 3: Ask your question and receive an answer from one of the more knowledgeable and skilled enablers preying upon your low post count.
Step 4: Commence follow on research, start reading more indepth about ballistics and big game hunting while pricing ammunition of various calibers and shopping GB and LGS for deals.
Step 5: Narrow down your caliber based on what you could find at a good price and stock up on ammunition.
Step 6: Assemble all your ammunition and rifle in a big pile and roll around/attempt to swim in it.
Step 7: Head to the range and light off the first glorious round after which the rest of the day will be a blur because "Recoil!" and "Big BOOM!" and "I have to talk louder now because I have a big rifle, I chased all the AR shooters away, and I'm excited!" Not to mention a smile as wide as can be that just can't be wiped off your face.

Oh wait, you were talking about conquering the addiction weren't you...sorry can't help you there. :E Shrug:

This step had me spitting out my coffee. Unfortunately it's getting harder and harder to assemble enough for just a little dip, let alone a full on swim in it.

I don't know why, but when I read your Step 6 I thought of Townsend @Bob Nelson 35Whelen?

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
