not sure about a push feed 375... but she is a nice looken rifle. the 375 gets you a seat at the big kids table but yer still drinken out of a sippy cup. :p

I think your overly worried about the recoil on the 416. I have a Winchester m70 in 416 RM and the recoil is very easy to work with, even for beginners. now you wont see me shooting my 416 off the bench like a 30-06 but standing its easy to shoot threw 20-40 rounds in a sitting. I even had a small 90 pound girl shoot my 416 without too much trouble. the key is too keep the rifle tight into your shoulder.

As long as you fill my sippy cup with a good grade of beer or wine, I don't care!;) As far as the push feed thing goes.....I thought about that, but seeing as how I'm not "planning" to stop a charge with it, and it was a good price......and the right caliber........and available, I went with it. Hopefully, it will serve me well for what I have planned. I found an Interarms Whitworth on-line, and asked the guy if he would take $50 less than what he was asking; guess that was in insult, as he never returned my email.:rolleyes:
As for the .416........NOW YOU TELL ME!!!:eek: Maybe some day, but for right now, this will suit my purpose just fine.......................I hope!o_O

well if you ever make it over to the wet side of WA state yer welcome to give my 416 RM a try and see what ya think. you can also try my 505 and 585 if your feeling a bit more brave after the 416.

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.
