    That double is truly a beauty. I'm curious though, what are those white handled tools in the case? That gun reminds me of my Drilling.

    Those white handles are ivory :))
    I am assuming they use it as a screwdriver to take of the side locks and stuff ???

    Nothing wrong with a 460 weatherby if you handload. The big case gives plenty of space for long monometal bullets. Load to sensible velocity and it will be a nice low pressure round. Use the fact that it is in an undesirable chambering to bargain the price down.

    On the other hand, a checkered bolt handle is to me a prime example of form over function. I've got nothing against engraving if one so desires, but checkering on a bolt makes no sense to me. A stock should be checkered so it doesn't slip in your hands. A bolt should be smooth so it doesn't abrade your hands.

    Ah but the buyer can easily rebarrel it to 500 A2, a much more desirable and milder :) round ...

    It sure is a beautiful piece.

    Just load it to some sensible velocity and you should have a very nice rifle.

    I am thinking 550 gr bullets at about 2300 fps max, should get anythings attention.

    Do you have the scope mounts and scope for it?

    On a rifle like this, the gold accents- are the gold accents painted on like gold leaf or are they inlaid into the steel?

    I love the look of the engraved steel with the gold accents. The artists are true masters!

    I just watched some videos on youtube of how this is done. Very interesting - and very time consuming I'm sure!

    To go from walking away because of the caliber to buying it is a substantial "swing." I hope you got it for a "reasonable" price, all things considered. Are you taking this rifle on your next elephant hunt or are you going to use it on Cape Buffalo?

    Congratulations on a beautiful rifle, the inlaid engraving is a work of art. Happy hunting. What's going to be a the menu for test drive?

    How about posting some photos of your targets. Weatherby rifles generally come with skinny barrels ostensibly to keep the weight down I guess. As a result they are always the best shooters. I suspect that Heym probably put a heavier than normal Weatherby barrel on your rifle. Just for giggles how about posting a target of three consecutive shots and then one with three cold barrel shots. P.S. I'm glad it is your shoulder and not mine. LOL
