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.

Hello! I noticed your E Type in your avatar. What year is it? I have a '69 that looks identical, minus the wire wheels. My car has the steel rims, as I understand it,a more expensive option, but I like the wire wheel much better!
