The rifle is STUNNING mate.. And a fantastic calibre. I would love to build myself a custom 404j, was thinking about it today actually. Was pretty happy to come across yours. Well done.

so I've been holding out on posting this until I received the license in my hands.

I FINALLY found and purchased a 404 Jeffery CZ550 safari classic to match my 416 Rigby and 375 h&h also in CZ550.

.
Hello , why to match .416Rigby , .375H&H and .404 Jeffery ?
Would have you not to prefer to acquire a 500 Jeffery or 505 Gibbs , the upper level .. ?

I have a 470 NE double and that is pretty much as big a caliber as I am happy and comfortable with for now , my next double that I am busy with is a 450/400

I am more than confident that all of my large and dangerous game can and will be taken with these calibers.

if I wasn't a gun nut then I would only own two rifles. a 30-06 for small and medium game and a 416 RM for large and dangerous game. with this two gun combo I wouldn't feel under gunned hunting anything on the planet.

Very nice I like the wood. Going to re-barrel my Ruger 375 RSM into 404 jeff, it is one of the big bores I have wanted for a long time. Thanks for the motivation(y)
Matt if I had to stick with bolt guns a 7x57, 9.3x62, and a 404 Jeff would cover my needs. Thank goodness we can have a few more in the safe.

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.
