    Loving the look of that over-moulded stock.. I might have to go that route with the 416 build I am currently working on.. How is it for weight (Im interested in something a little bit on the heavy side)? And how about the recoil pad? Comfy/soft enough to help handle the push of a 416?

    GLWS!

    The recoil pad is fairly soft. As for weight, I believe it runs around 8.5 pounds.

    As for shootability, I haven’t any problem but each is their own barometer, that way.

    That's a fabulous rifle. I have one just like it. Better get it while you can people. You will not regret it.

    I shoot strictly open sights. In this regard it’s obviously every bit as accurate as I am.

    Being a modern, factory rifle I’m sure it groups like every other of its kind, but I’ve no proof. Sorry.

    Sorry, didn’t answer your question. It’s going toward a .577 NE falling block (a design of my own, borrowing from among the finest of English make).

    Nice! I wish I had an Alexander Henry single rifle myself. I love the looks of those old rifles. I have a Ruger No 1 in 7x57 and have had a bunch of them in other calibers over the years, but nothing looks better than those old English rifles.
    I have Ross Seyfried to blame for that!

    I'm putting this back out there. The only change is that there is now an additional box of (20) Hornady DGX ammunition (non-bonded, bought on sale when emptying inventory for the new, bonded bullets). Other than that, all remains as above.
