So then say "I want to buy the cheapest operable cz550 available with a good bore" and we'll surely find you one on this forum.

Good luck in your quest! I had a CZ 550 in .375 for a while. It was a good gun, but I have to say the finish on mine was disappointing. The metalwork was ok, but the checkering was quite rough and poorly done. I know it isn't a custom gun, but it retails for around about $1100 US here in the States, so for that money they can do better woodwork. I sold it eventually, but it was a fine shooting rifle.

Just this past weekend I stumbled into a Whitworth Express in .375 and snatched it up. Inside and out the rifle appears new, I doubt it has 30 or 40 rounds through it; I'm looking forward to shooting it this weekend.

Abenson229 that sounds like a nice find. I have advertised here in Canada for one as well.
Ultimately I hope to find one in Canada so I can avoid the 30% difference in exchange rate. However finding one is like finding a needle in a haystack.

Well, I finally have a tracking number for an 1987 BRNO ZKK 602 in .375H&H. A grand total of 68 rounds fired through it to date. I should have it by the end of the month. It cost me about $750 USD shipped to the house. I'm a happy man.

Just picked up a ZKK 601 in .308win for $340USD. Stock is all Bubba'd up but the action and barrel are in great shape. Now to find a donor stock or even a synthetic.

I just got my ZKK 602 in 458 Lott. One thing I'm thinking about is, is it possible to mount a red dot sight on the front base only or will the recoil send it flying?

I have not fired mine as of yet. We are going to put rings and a scope on it and hopefully find some ammo for it. Availability of .375h&h on the East Coast of Canada is slim and expensive. Looks like I may have to break down and buy reloading gear.

Do it and you will be happy! You can reload and shoot a lot to get comfortable. I get a lot of use out of my brass. Having to dish out $80 everytime you go to the range can be a disincentive. Also, you can get some remarkable accuracy out of the 375 H&H over several hundred yards so it is worth the effort.

Enjoy!

Thanks for the advice. I've never reloaded so this may be a new adventure.

Trying to find good 30mm rings for this rifle. Any suggestions for brand? Was there such a thing as a one pice ring/base for these 602's?

I have used those Alaska arms mounts on a ZKK 602 in .458Win. on 2 trips to Africa, very sturdy mounts...expensive on this side of the pond...but you get what you pay for..

I have used Alaska arms, Talley and Warne. All in QD and prefer the order as shown. Have two scopes with Alaska and Talley attached. One is a Nikon monarch 3 2-8x32 with the Alaska 1 " rings, the other is a Docter V6 2-12x50 illuminated reticle, which I use for load development and shooting at dusk. Handy to be able to remove quickly and use open sights when walking into thick scrub. I use these with my CZ550 safari in 375 h&h. Best of luck mate.

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.
