I am a cruiser man myself but I know a few that swears by the Safari.

If you watch the way these guys in the video
work a bolt my ZKK with 5 in the belly and one in the spout will work fine.

For pigs yes. If it takes 5 in the mag it is probably too small to be a reliable DG stopping rifle.

Yip .375 HH. I am going to work that bolt so fast that the shear weight of the 350 grainers is going to be the stopping power. ;)

The DG PH's I've hunted with carried the following guns;
1. Merkel 500 double. Open sighted.
2. CZ 550 in 458 win mag. Open sighted.
3. Brno 602 pop up keep, 458 Lott, safe never on, carried with bolt handle up.
4. Ruger RSM in 416 Rigby. Scoped.
5. CZ in 458 win mag, open sighted.
6. A spear lifted off some poachers. Specialized in Leopard with dogs. Spear is light weight, no permit to own or cross borders, figured it was more effective in close with dogs on cat;)

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
