WOW, :Drool::E Drooling: More details please.

I purchased the rifle second hand chambered in 270 Win. I had PacNor rebarrel (custom contour) with a 24.5” tube with a long throat for 160-175 gr projectiles, I’ll have to look up the twist rate. Then it was sent to Dennis Olson for NECG sights and swivel barrel band, and rust bluing. The stock I’m certain is English walnut though I don’t know who the original stocker was. I had stock maker Bruce Farman fit the new barreled action to the existing stock and add weight to the forend. Both individuals did a fantastic job.

VZ33 - a classic action... for a classic cartridge. Very nice.

I could never hunt with artwork like that but I could hold and just look at it all day!
@Flewis
Why???? It was made to hunt not hide in a safe. That would be a crying shame.
A bit like owning Bentley to keep in the garage while you dive a Chevy nova. No point.

I would like to delete my last post on the the thread where to hunt big cape buffalo. I haven't been to that area for a few years and it may be very different now. Not fair of me to post this.

PM me when you get a chance, have a few questions for you.

Pheroze: I was intrigued by the blog on 400, 465 H&H in which you stated you were having a rifle reamed out to accomodate the larger bore. Who is doing the work for you, do they then provide cut rifling or buttoned. Will a 375 H&H rechamber to the 400 H&H. Is there much ballistic difference between it and the 404/375
