Welcome to AH. I’m just taking a wild stab at the fact you like the .450/400. What rifle is it? Tell us a little about yourself. Have you been to Africa?

Africa 5 times, USA - most western states including Alaska and Hawaii.
I have been roaming around this forum for a while now and thought it’s about time I say hello to all.

Hello 450/400,

Khomas Highland Hunting Safaris of Namibia, welcomes you to the greatest forum on earth.

Cheers,
Velo Dog.

Hi Meigsbucks,

The 450/400 is one of the many classic calibers I like. I am lucky to have a VC SxS chambered in this cartridge.
I am also fond of the 375 H&H, 404J and 500 NE and am lucky to have these rifles also.
I love collecting, shooting and hunting with all these classics.
I have yet to travel to Africa but am planning to do so in the near future when current travel restrictions have lifted, I would have been there this year like many others if is wasn’t for this bloody COVID.

Regards,

Hi 450/400, Africa is ready and waiting for you and all our hunting friends from abroad. Covid was a disaster, but possibly one positive to come from it is a re-focus upon the value of hunting in conservation. Without you hunters, there is no future. Also of interest and gratification to me is the determination of the hunters to get back as soon as possible, absence makes the heart grow fonder, come while you can, the animals need you!

Welcome aboard 450/400. You certainly have an fine battery of rifles. How about some pics. and details? What do you hunt in Oz?

Hi Shootist43,

I mostly hunt Sambar, Red and Fellow deer. I was planning to travel to Africa this year to hunt Buffalo, will hopefully get there next year. I would also like to hunt buffalo in NT in the not to distant future.
I am currently lucky to own a VC in 450/400, a Chapuis in 375, a Westley ‘White Hunter’ in 500NE, a Rigby PH in 416 Rigby and a newly acquired Brno 602 custom in 404J. I have yet to take any photos of the 404.

One of these days I might be lucky enough and or able to acquire a double rifle, but for now I'm satisfied with the "larger bore" single and bolt action rifles I have. I own two 404(s) one is a CZ550 the other a rebarreled Winchester Mod. 70, a Ruger No. 1 in 416 Rigby and three 375 H&H(s). None of which wear a pretty stock. Just plain Walnut. But like many of us, I enjoy looking at beautiful rifles especially knowing that they are used used.

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
