Many moons of shooting all types of rifles have left me with a rather painful right shoulder. Some sort of bone damage. I don't shoot the Jeffery much any more but there is no way I'm putting my favorite .375 away. I have friends in the trade that can fix the shoulder with a scalpel, but I'm not in the mood..I've had more stitches in my body than there are in my woolly hunting hat. So, I tried another route and I'm really glad that I did..! What a pleasure the 'Dutchman' is to shoot now, and quite accurate as well. After re-setting my scope and the torque on my action screws, I let fly with three rounds of Federal 270gr Power-Shok. Feel like a youngster again..:biggrin2:

That is a great solution to the problem.

I wish we could use suppressors here.

Good luck hunting with it.

Looks like it is fun to shoot. Accurate as well.

I don't shoot the Jeffery much any more but there is no way I'm putting my favorite .375 away.

Does this mean the Jeffery is for sale?

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
