o_O of course its a classic ;) as a few here have said the .275(7x57) would be perfect for your smaller cal, and the .404 or .416 RIGBY !! as your bigger one. above that the .500 jeff or .505 gibbs if you can handle them and are looking at bolt action. but with the 275, 9.3x62 and 404 or 416 you would have no reason to buy anything else.......... so is that good or bad.......? :eek:
Isn't your double rifle s 9.3x62?

I can't argue with the 6.5x55 or the 7x57 they are both great choices but you could also use the .270, .280 or the 7x64, if your hunting in open country the additional reach and knockdown power may come in handy. As for the big gun I don't own anything larger than a 35 Whelen but the 416's do interest me.

I wonder if that pair might be a two gun battery that does not need another in between. The would cover the same category of hunt needs as the 9.3x62 bracketed by the 7x57 and 404 Jeffery.

@Von Gruff I can see your point BUT ... why confuse an excuse to buy a new gun or two, with logic? :D (n) :whistle: :A Stirring: :D Beers:

You are letting the side down, mate!

I hardly think so as I was intending the 318 / 425 WR pairing to be a second battery to the 7x57 / 9.3x62 / 404 Jeffery trio, so rather than letting the side down, I rather think I am advocating for ADDING another two guns to what might otherwise only have been three for those times when you have to travel light.

Then there is also the 350 and 416 Rigby pairing that might be better suited for a more open ground type of hunt where ranges might be a bit longer. So now we mmight be looking at one three gun and 2 two gun batteries.

@PeteG that's just wrong :notworthy::notworthy:
You don't know how long I had been thinking along those lines when I first started thinking about .404J.
@Von Gruff - I like the idea of pairing
Easier to make up more pairs :whistle::whistle:
German pairs, English Pairs, American Pairs
Light and mid range
Mid range and heavy
Light and heavy
Doubles and doubles
:A Banana::A Banana:Ja I am seeing a plan here

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
