OK, I screwed up and started over! Here again. Thanks von gruff for the link! Here again is my custom Ruger Krieger .404, some have seen it on another thread. And the first target shot with it, using Hornady factory loads, a CorBon load and previous owners handload at bottom center.

With all these rounds you must have a 404j hiding somewhere tarbe.:sneaky:

It is interesting that your ammo boxes spell "404 Jeffrey" instead of "404 Jeffery"

Love to see yours if you want to post it.(y)


Haha....I am working on it Bob.

The 404 has my interest. Who builds a good control round feed bolt gun without spending $3000+?

Look at Gunbroker. There are two there right now. CZ Classic 550, one is well under 3K.

Always be sure to spell Jeffery both ways when searching. The one noted spells it Jeffrey.

All very interesting to a chap sitting in Scotland this morning - who is in the process of getting a 404 built. We have action, wood for the stock (a very fine piece of walnut), the scope (as it was too good a chance to miss) and I believe the barrel maybe in the country now. So it's all coming together. Furthermore I took the opportunity last week to buy an old Mauser that had been converted to the old flanged 375 calibre (more common in doubles) and it will become a 300 H&H magnum. I now also have 300 bright shiny 300 H&H Magnum Winchester cases. Should last a lifetime!! There is a sale coming up in Britain soon and we are hoping to buy an old Mauser that will become a 500 Jeffery. Eventually I will have a battery for Africa - not that my dad's old BSA 30.06 and my Ruger Rigby 416 did too badly so far.

"Furthermore I took the opportunity last week to buy an old Mauser that had been converted to the old flanged 375 calibre (more common in doubles) and it will become a 300 H&H magnum"

@paladin100 just wondering if that is one of the original actions made for rigbys by mauser for the rimmed 400/350 rigby round? most were converted to 9.3x74r as the one i had built for finn was. mauser didnt make that many of them as far as i know.

"In 1899, Rigby asked the engineers in the Mauser Sporting Arms Department to make a special action that would handle their popular rimmed .400/350 cartridge. When completed c.1900 it was the ‘birth’ of the magnum action which, in turn, provided the ideal platform for dangerous game cartridges like the .375 H&H, .416 Rigby and the .505 Gibbs."

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
