Ok guys. Decided to sell because of buying several CZ 550s in the past months and this will just collect dust in safe.

Winchester Model 70 Safari 416 Rem Mag.
Rifle is glass bedded, Timney trigger, mercury reducer, new Pachmyer recoil pad. Warne bases with Leupold PRW QD rings, Leupold VX5HD 2-10x42 CDS Firedot with custom turret for Federal Premium 416 Rem Mag 400 gr Swift Aframes. Comes with 50 factory rounds of Federal 400 gr Aframes. There is one small scratch I show in photos. Bought this new and set up in early 2019 for safari in June 2019. Used it to take my first Cape Buff with. Gun has about 100 rounds down barrel.
Gun shoots under 3/4 inch group with this factory load. I have shot it out to 250 yards and CDS is spot on.
$2600 shipped to FFL.

I’ve personally put eyes on this rifle. The pics don’t do it justice. It is a sweet DG rig..

Thanks Dave. Thought I would use it this year or next, but with the big bore addiction and addition of a 458 Lott and a 500 Jeffery I just dont see using it again.

Gee thanks Mark. Just put the identical rig together 2 months ago. These are great rifles and scopes. Anyone looking at this set up it will be everything he says it is and Mark is a straight shooter.

Damn it.

I saw the ammo in the photos section and came over here immediately.
Thought it would be just the ammo for sale...damn it.

Wouldn't be the worst decision, buying the whole package deal.
Then I could turn around and sell the rifle and scope. (y)
Gonna have a hard time selling that idea to the Department of Finance. (n)

Sweet deal you have there.
Good luck with the sale.

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there
