No way you were that good last year. :grin:I missed a used one of those in 375 H&H a few years back and every time I see one now I mentally kick myself.:Banghead:

sweet.

prices those darn rifles in .500jeffery and .505gibbs are commanding over here these days, you must have been a "real" good boy.

would imagine you're handloading for the beast ???

looking forward to hearing how it shoots.

That's a serious rifle and a serious cartridge! A thumper at both ends!
Winchester bring these into OZ too, very pricey but they are always on backorder so someone has the money to buy them. (Not me though :cry:) And the ammunition costs too...

The older ones had the hogsback style stock. I shot one in .458win mag with a "mild" load once and it was a pain. Smacked me in the cheek :stars:. Good to see a straight stock on these ones.

I have no need for one but would love to own one. (Makes sense?)
I would have to load her up with Trail Boss and throw some heavy lead down range.

Hi Guys,
This rifle shoots very easily and accurate :happy:
i am using two loads, 525gn woodleigh FMJ at approx 2200-2300 and a 600gn woodleigh PP at approx 2100-2200 and yes you know when it goes off but i find the recoil is not as bad as i first thought.:eek::eek::happy:
Can fire 10 525gn loads insuccession and only 4 600gn loads :eek::stars:
i am looking at casting in the very near future and i will be using trailboss for these loads.
cheers
Carl
