It's a nice rifle. But 825k ? Its not that nice.
That is just a ive got so much money to buy everything, might aswell have one of those ,type rifles.
If I had that kind of extra money. I would just buy my own hunting grounds in africa. Then enjoy the hunt with my old Remington!

what is the action?
if it is just a crappy sako it is seriously over capitalized.
there exist firearms referred to as pimped up.
this and the double above might come into that category.

Personally, I prefer my Krieghoff Ulm Primus, immaculate craftmanship at a reasonable price:

I agree on the tasteless engraving, but the wood looks great, as it should be at that price.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
