Put you pics on your profile page first, then load them from there, it works better.

I ended up switching my Leupold scope out for a Zeiss HD5 in 2x10. I wanted to make my 375 a bit more of an all around gun. That being said, I really like how the 20 mm scope looks on the gun. I know it isn't about looks, but still. :)

Tests have Proved that a better looking Gun shoots better than an Ugly Looking gun:)

I know a double rifle will work on a pissed off elephant. I'm not so sure on a pissed off wife. The wife is much more dangerous!!!

I'm finally getting around to upgrading my cz 550 375 h&h. I just got a new necg white bead front sight fitted and installed and am going to be ordering a leupold vx-3 1.5-5x20 within the next couple days. I think im going to go with the duplex reticle and mounted with warne qd rings. I'm excited to finally be getting the rifle hunting ready. At some point i think i will send it out to AHR and have them do their number 2 upgrade package on it. Although it will be some time before i take it to Africa, i hope to do some preliminary testing with it on black bears and wild boars. I will be sure to post pictures when its ready to go. Feel free to chime in with any other advice or experiences with the optics and reticles or anything else i may be forgetting.

Thanks,
Voodooracer

Hi I had my CZ 550 in 375 H&H done by AHR with their upgrade #1 (straighten and fill bolt, match grade single stage trigger, 3 Pos M70 style safety) and was very pleased. Of course I then had it rechambered to 500 Jeffery (still wonder about that sometimes lol). I have the Leupold VX3 1.5-5x scope on it with Talley QRs. It's held up to 400 plus rounds of full power 500 Jeffery rounds. I'm very happy with it, you will be too.

Here's a bad picture of a nice rifle...

I don't know what Frog Lube is, but it sounds very wrong ...

OMG that was funny....

Frog Lube is actually some pretty good stuff. The AR15 guys love it. One of the cool things is that the carbon seems to stay on top of it, so when cleaning it just wipes off, then put a little more lube on.

Thanks Colorado, I have seen your rifle on a couple other posts on here and that is a gorgeous rifle! At some point I'm hoping to add one like that in either 500 Jeffrey or 505 Gibbs. I'm hoping to finally be able to sight the rifle in in the next few days weather permitting

Congrats again Voodooracer, Wayne at AHR does very nice work, the CZ is a very accurate very solid rilfe, you won't be sorry. The boys are taking their 270s prairie dog shooting in a couple of weeks, I believe I'll have to bring the 500 Jeffery and we'll have to digitally video record it. Should be epic.

Thanks for all the kind words. I'm definitely looking to send my cz in 375 h&h as well as my cz in 458 lott to AHR and im thinking about getting their number 2 upgrades on both rifles. I'm already very impressed with both rifles so far and can't wait to do some hunting with them. Oh wow that will definitely be epic haha!

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
