The fellows at Rigby asked if I would mind sending them a report of my .275's maiden hunt here in Texas. It has been posted on their site, and I thought some of you might get a kick out of it. https://www.johnrigbyandco.com/texashillcountry/

As some of you may remember, I posted a brief review here last summer about the lovely little thing.

That is a nice or should I say classic looking rifle. Whether it is called a 275 Rigby or a 7 x 57 that caliber has earned its' stripes in the hunting fields of the world. This post cleared up a mystery for me, I wondered why Von Gruff called one of his newer offerings The JT Ranger. Now we know.

Great article and beautiful rifle. I guess many of us here are dreaming of such a rifle, so please keep the stories pertaining to this rifle coming.

That little rifle is going gain the exceptional desirability of the original as it becomes more widely distributed. A very worthwhile reintroduction.

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

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
