Hello all,

I'm new to the forum here, and just wanted to say hello. I'm from a small town in PA and have been a big bore enthusiast since I was a small boy. I happened to come across the site today while surfing the internet, and couldn't resist signing up. I look forward to talking with you all, and exchanging knowledge, as well as hunting and shooting stories!

Hey guys, thank you very much for the warm welcome! Yeah I currently have a few big bores. I've got a Vintage Ruger M77RS chambered in 458 Win Mag sporting a Leupold VX-3 1.5-5, it was made in 1979...........a Ruger No. 1H Tropical Stainless chambered in 375H&H Mag sporting a Skinner peep sight...............a Ruger No. 1H Tropical Stainless chambered in 458 Lott sporting a Burris Signature Select 1.75-5 Safari Scope with Posi-Lock..............a Ruger M77 Hawkeye Alaskan Chambered in 375 Ruger...........open sights at the moment.................and a Weatherby Dangerous Game Rifle out of their custom shop chambered in 460 Weatherby Mag...........also open sights at the moment.

I actually just posted the Vintage 458 and the 375H&H in the Classified section for sale.....................I am looking to sell them in order to finance a new custom project I am really anxious to get started.

Hey welcome. You're going to love it in here.
My wife and I are from Allentown & Easton PA.
They're not small towns... but my wife grew up on a farm in Mt Bethel, PA which is truly a small town.

Welcome to AH!

I like your signature. It was and is used often while teaching my sons to shoot.
However, it seems that based on your rifles that your bullets are larger than the point you aim at. I like it! :thumb:

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.
