I am a simple man..

I want a Left Handed Pre 64 in 300 H&H , or a Dakota Model 10 in the same.
Even a Ruger No 1 in the Super 30 will do.

Id load a 180gr Partition to an accuracy node around 2900fps and be a happy man.

So I can source a Left Handed Zastava Magnum length action locally, a good 26" barrel and great walnut stocks are even available in LH for this type of Mauser.
Maybe build my own?

A dream gun would cost more than is practical. For me anyway. So I’ll stick to deluxe production rifles so I can have many decent firearms . Though I will inevitably get a GA Precision. Maybe even an Accuracy International . I have enough wood stocked rifles. I’m going to start playing with a couple of synthetic stocked rifles made for precision shooting.

Then again there are these ... I believe these are post 64 but CRF, the full set is in 338 Win Mag, 375 H&H, 416 Rem, 458 Win Mag and 470 Capstick I lust a bit for one of these in 470 Capstick ..

Is it wrong to have more than 1?
Westely Richards or Heym 89B chambered in 500 NE
Not sure yet but something in 9.3
Rigby in 416 Rigby
Rigby in 275 Rigby
This is the answer to the question of a dream battery

Come on in, the water is fine!

I can pretty consistently ring steel out to 1800 yards with my 6.5CM Impact/Bartlein in a Foundation stock. From 1200 yards in it just feels like cheating.

Thanks for asking, but I already have all my dream rifles from .22 to .458s.
Also all the Parker shotguns plus a combo turkey gun/rifle.
Now all I need is to hunt and shoot more!

I own one of my dream rifles already. Ruger No. 1 .375 H&H, red pad, made in 1981 with exceptional factory wood. Sent it to R.J. Renner who reshaped the stock and forend for use with irons, improved the checkering and installed ghost ring rear and white bead front sights. Now it is an Africa-capable, English Stalking Rifle in the Queen of cartridges. If I had but one rifle this would be it.

...But I really want a double. Dream double (read achievable) would be a Heym 88b or 89b with 4 barrel sets to cover the gamut of intended uses around this planet. There is one for sale that I have found online but I just bought a tractor for my farm and it may be stretching the budget a bit.

I have a pile of never fired .35 Rem brass if you are interested. What quantity are you looking for?
