Hello everyone. I'm a lifelong hunter from Just south of Pittsburgh, PA. I came across the site while doing a little research on larger caliber rifles. I'm getting to the point that I think I need to "thin the herd" a bit and I thought I might have a few things that hunters of African or Alaskan big game animals might be interested in. I've hunted big game in PA (white tails mostly) and also made a couple of trips to Texas years back. I'm pretty sure I'm never going to make it to Africa or Alaska - unless I hit the lottery or something!

Anyway, my dad passed down a nice collection to me in 1999 and there are a few pieces that I just know I will never have the opportunity to use. One of them is a Whitworth bolt action rifle in .375 H&H Magnum caliber with a Weaver K-6 scope. The gun is pretty much mint. My dad bore sighted it & we fired less than 10 rounds through it sighting it in at the range - this was sometime in the mid-1990's. Safe queen ever since.

So, if anyone might be interested I can certainly create a post for it with some pictures...let me know.

Cheers!
Never say never . Save a bit here and there then before you know it you can get there. Hunting in Africa is not as expensive as you think. Do your research and you may someday be able to go.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
