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.
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.

@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."
I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
