Big Brother - Little Brother.JPG
Here is the newest addition to the family, with his big brother sitting proudly behind him. :):)

Top - My CZ550 Safari American in .375 H&H. Had it for a few years, mostly shooting at paper. My only complaint is the sights, but I've decided not to scope it. I'm waiting on a new fiber optic front sight and rear NECG peep sight. If my eyes get much worse, the decision on scopes may change...

Bottom - brand-new CZ557 Carbine in .30-06. I have to say, the iron sights on this one are much better than on the safari. I was all over the place for a while, getting used to them, but after the first 10 rounds, I kind of settled down and they were fine. I mounted a scope today, but I used some generic rings which didn't work out very well. Hoping to get some rings for a CZ in Lubbock in a few days. If not, I'll have to order them. Until then, however, the iron sights will be fine.

Congratulations - they both look great. I've got a 550 in 375 and 404 jeff. The 375 took a buff in Zimbabwe in 2011. The 404 hasn't been bloodied yet. My eyes can't do the iron sights. I put a Leupold 1-4 24 on the 375 and a Zeiss 1.2-5 36 on the 404.

I used the Warne medium QD rings on both and am very happy with them.

Very nice! .375 H&H and .30-'06 make a perfect pair (y)

Thanks for the advice, John. I've been looking at the Warne rings. Going to try to get a pair in Lubbock next week. If not, I'll have to order them.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
