The 450 NE could be paired with the 300 Flanged Magnum ( H&H Super 30) the 303 British or even the 333 Jeffery flanged. All in doubles of course.:sneaky::sneaky::sneaky:

I did want to make the 303 in a Lee Speed rather than a double which would make for a delightfull pairing with the 450 NE, or at least that is what I would do as I have a real affinity for the Old Lee Enfield sporting rifle. (I have made a few of them from the Long Tom action and even did one in a fractonally shortened 405 Win so I have that pairing although it is probably a bit light for the real heavy DG\.
I have the correct mag for the 303 now but this is just after I finished them both

You guys ..... You so special :love::love:
I have a .303 from the Boer War, I keep forgetting what model they call it but my son loves to burn rounds out that size 10 magazine. :W Rockets:
This pairing is going easy, will have to start on the next matching set soon.

That is not the original stock, by the time I got it, there was major crack and they had drilled it for a scope.
It had old cape style stock before, I have debated restoring to original but the wear on the barrel and the drilling convinced me to turn it into a working rifle.
We must try catchup some time when you back in Zambia

I love my Swedes. I'm getting 2775 fps with a 140 Gr. Barnes TSX. That is pushing 7x57 performance. My sons and I are leaving for our 1st PG hunt in less than 90 days. I'm taking a 35 Whelen (which is a kissing cousin) to the 9.3 x 62 and a Swedish Mauser. I don't think that I'll be leaving anything on the table as far as my choice of calibers goes.

After- has to be 404 Jeff or 416 Rigby if you don't like 404 Jeff.

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.
