Thank you so much for your insight. Was your rifle built by the company , Westley Richards ?
Yes, it a Westley Richards with the drop magazine etc. The serial number starts “LT” which I believe indicates it was made when Leslie Taylor was at the helm... It’s certainly pre-war. Westley Richards is a very innovative company. My sense is that the rifle would not feed well without the magazine fingers that sling an otherwise staggered stack of cartridges. It feeds flawlessly, upside down...

What I said.

Hardly anyone will to exert oneself nowadays , if a 404 Jeffery cartridge is relatively easier to built in an regular M98 system.

Does not mean that's not a good cartridge for hunting DG. It is one of the 3 classics that have proven themselves , i mean the 416 Rigby , the 404 Jeffery and our 425WR. Unfortunately , the latter offers a few problems that are disadvantageous to it.

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).
