Yes 550 mag is the caliber basically alittle more power than the 577 NE in a bolt gun. This gun was built to handle this brute of a cartridge. CH4D list dies and there is some brass out there for it.
There were two versions I take this the one on a 505 case. Well I guess the were i fore got the one on a 50 bmg. Case. That’s 3.

I don’t know I always thought there was just one version. Let me measure the brass I have and I’ll get back with you. The brass I have was made by Jameson.
The 505 version came out many years ago in oz. It was built on 14/17 action.

Very cool rifle. I've been intrigued by them in the past (see the thread I started last year that is linked above).

How is the recoil? Most guns in this caliber that I've seen carry an extra pound or two. 10.4 lbs sounds light.

the picture of the brass. The owner of Woodleigh designed a 550 Gibbs years ago. Also made bullets for it. Modified 505 Gibbs brass. Called it 550 Gibbs.

Pheroze: I was intrigued by the blog on 400, 465 H&H in which you stated you were having a rifle reamed out to accomodate the larger bore. Who is doing the work for you, do they then provide cut rifling or buttoned. Will a 375 H&H rechamber to the 400 H&H. Is there much ballistic difference between it and the 404/375
