I agree with what you guys are saying about customizing a gun to get it's maximum performance. I think fixing the muzzle crown....would mean selling the gun for me.

I agree sestoppelman, more often than not...the stock is the culprit of most accuracy.

A nice trigger helps a lot, but you can learn how to handle a trigger...if the stock is messed up...you are screwed.

I have never shot a huge big bore....so Ed might be right about the trigger being to far forward. I personally love the set trigger...wish it was on every gun.

From experince with the .375 H+H on four hunts and the .375 Ruger on one hunt in Africa, I can say that the confidence in a rifle that feeds as smothly as the H+H round in a model 70 is hard to beat. The Ruger does not feed as well. Anyone who has used the .375 H+H will likely agree about the feeding point. Ballisticly there is nothing to choose between the two rounds.

I could not agree more with the above.

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.
