For me, it’s a .300 H&H, hands down. When I had my .300 Win Mag built I agonized over doing a .300 H&H instead. The Win Mag is a great rifle that does everything I need it to, but it’s not a Super-Thirty.

I would love to have two sets of double rifles.

For PG an O/U with 2 sets of barrels in 9.3x74R and 7x65R(I own combinations in these calibers but not doubles. Both fitted with scopes on QD mounts.

For DG a SxS with two sets of barrels in 500 3 1/4" regulated with ammo 570gr @ 2250 and another set of barrels in 500/416 3 1/4" NE. 416 fitted with Aimpoint H2 and regulated for 410gr load.

As I get older I’m less enamored with having lots of different calibers and would rather have a nice rifles in a handful of calibers. A Blaser R8 is on the top of my list, and even if I have to go with an entry-level option I would like to add a Mauser or Sauer to my Steyr. Can you tell I like German rifles?

The exception to my general rule is that I’d REALLY like to have a double rifle in .450/400 one day. Heym or Merkel tops my list but I’m not going to be picky if someone would like to buy one for me!

I’ve got a Hi-Power in 9mm. It’s the only pistol that I will never sell. Fantastic weapon.

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

regards
Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
