Show your work horses and bubba rifles

The closest thing to a Bubba rifle I have is this. What makes it "Bubba"? If we are to believe etymologists, the word is an alteration of "brother".... in this case, this rifle is like the little brother who doesn't want to be left behind and insists on coming along:

What caliber is it Chambered in?
 
Melvin, is that the same 425 Express round from the early 1900s?
I reckon you are thinking of the 425 Westley Richards mate.
The 425 Express is quite modern. It’s the .300 Win Mag necked up to .423 (y)
Awesome cartridge!

After shooting that rifle I call it the pussycat that roars. Gentle in the recoil but packs a big punch in tuther end.

I disagree Bob, I think its recoil is substantial.
At 8.5lb it’s especially awful off the bench…
I wish l had’ve read your comment before l sighted it in last weekend! :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

When I shot it I thought I would need 2 pairs of big boy pants from what you were saying BUT I could have worn my wife's frilly knickers ( if they fitted me) that's how pleasant I found it.
If I could post the video of me shooting it I would. Then again it did look small in my hands looking back at it.

Do you still have this rifle? I'm in the KC area on business and I'm very interested.
