After some thought, and considering this may be a great Elephant rifle for my upcoming hunt, I've decided to keep this rifle. Also, I'll probably never come across a totally made in the USA Model 70, 458 again. So I think I'll hold on to this one for awhile. Thanks for looking!
But on second thought, my 416 will probably work just as well. So if anyone is interested in this rifle, I can probably be persuaded to sell it. ;)

People always talk about “classic” African rifle/calibers, like the 9.3, 404, 470 and so on. But for Americans, this is as classic as it gets.
The Winchester model 70 in 458 win mag has been probably been used on as many or more Big Five hunts than any other.

I have been looking at an option for a 505, that doesn't break the bank (that concern my have to yield), and is more in the 50-110, or 50 Alaskan range. However not easy to find a case, other than the Weatherby, of course. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hello, do you have any information on your 505 SRE cartridge. Up here in Canada, there is talk about how the various 500s may exceed the 10 000 Joule limit recently imposed. Not that they do on paper, but you never know what they may infer or claim.

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.
