Yes, sadly CZ seems now, if not suddenly, to be primarily focused on the Military and Police type firearms.I agree with the 2 3/4" buckshot, I can shoot that all day. I am all for the 375 to start, but the future holds the 416...and the 458...and...Anyhow, I emailed CZ and they straight up told me there was not enough interest in the Safari rifles to continue them.
Certainly I can appreciate M & P type firearms, for what they are.
Plus, sadly we may all NEED them again here in the USA one day soon.
(I sincerely hope not).
Anyway, if the M & P market is where the bulk of the buyers are today, likewise I can appreciate that as well.
All companies are in business to make money.
Can’t blame them for that.
Nonetheless, hunting rifles and hunting are my favorite things.
And I lament the passing of all versions of truly large sized Mauser-type (dreaded CRF) bolt action rifles.
After you get super proficient with your .375 H&H:
As for choosing between one of the .416’s and one of the .458 cartridges...
If you are a hand loader, I recommend you skip the .416 and go straight for the .458 Lott.
The multitude of available bullets (they will be available again), is much more diversified in .458 diameter than in .416, by quite a margin.
If you decide to get into casting lead alloy bullets for cheap practice and lower recoil plinking of soda pop cans, etc., moulds for the .458 diameter will be common again but, in .416 diameter, they have always been somewhat scarce.
Of course, owning all 3 caliber rifles is a very fine thing, to include really annoying Joe Bidet, Nancy Pgrossley and other big shot communists, here in the formerly greatest nation to ever jump and breathe.
