Well in Alberta I think.
After I heard that CZ was discontinuing the 550 I decided to go find one. I already have one American Safari Magnum in 416 and a Brno 602 in 375H&H so another DG wasn't in the cards but I thought that a medium bore would be nice as they are soon to be extinct. Well I managed to find one, LUX model with very nice Turkish walnut and it arrived today in the mail. A classic calibre in a classic rifle (IMHO).

Nice rifle, I'm sure you will have many good hunts with it. I've one 550, a full stock that is beautifully accurate but, it is about a pound and half too heavy for the 7x64 round it fires.

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).
