My new JDJ 600 NE Ruger No.1 answers the question - Is "BIGGER" really better?

Hello bebo,

I don't believe the words "too powerful" are in my vocabulary.

Hello matt85,

My results with lead bullets was mediocre. I ordered some .620 dia Hawk 650g jacketed bullets. They came yesterday. I hope to have some targets to post soon.

I'm in charge of controlling all the Elephant, Rhino, and Buffalo populations here in central Wisconsin. So far I've been doing pretty good.


I saw a report of a rouge elephant terrorizing Wisconsin Rapids. Better get going! :)

I think the recoil system is a major factor in recoil reduction. A similar load in one of my doubles, kicks like a mule, the 600 does not.

I don't think the muzzle brake does much at lower velocities. It takes "high speed" gases to make it function.

The gases are escaping at roughly the same velocity as usual (around 7,000 fps). The issue is the weight of the projectile versus the weight of the powder charge. Muzzle brakes are most effective when the weight (mass) of the charge is a significant fraction of the weight (mass) of the projectile. This is simple Newtonian mechanics and is why brakes are, generally speaking, less effective when hurling gigantic chunks of lead.

Hello Royal27,

If you're going for something special, go for bigger than 458 Lott. I'd suggest " a Lott bigger".

Hello Rob44,

I'm in charge of controlling all the Elephant, Rhino, and Buffalo populations here in central Wisconsin. So far I've been doing pretty good.

I agree Buck....I have a Brno 602 in .458Win. and considered a Lott, but it is about to become a .500 Jeffery instead...for shooting ele at close ranges..

I would love to top with a double in .577 or .600 NE as well....them elephants are darn big at close ranges...

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
