Nice rifle @TOBY458. Also built mine using a Win M70 375H&H Stainless Classic donor rifle. Not too many stainless 404's around to my knowledge (which is very limited according to...well...lots of people).
Nice bull!Here is my 404 with the buffalo I got this year in the Save hunting with Mokore. It was built on a VZ24 action, LW barrel, and wood from Roger Vardy. All put together by Piper Rifles in Az. I did the stock finishing. Used 400gr. North Fork softs and solids at 2300 fps, rifle weighs 8.5# and is a joy to carry and shoot.
I would love to know more about this build. I'm a fan of the mod 70. That is a beautiful rifle! I've been looking for one for a while with no luck. Figure I will have to have one built.
