    Chilly.

    The name of my shooting school and range way back in the lower forty eight.

    Built on about eighty acres of rocky ground in southern Missouri. It will be revitalized and made larger and restored to full operation again in a couple of years. Sort of a poor mans Gunsight Ranch.

    We teach young and old rifle and pistol marksmanship, with special attention given to defensive pistol.

    Good shootin'.

    Smile You should take this cereally

    Reuben,

    I'm no a chevy guy but if there were 468,322,984 Fords in this world and ony one Chevy, I'd be driving a Chevy. This is sorta like a 1906 Marlin lever gun, even if you don't like lever guns.

    Good questions.

    Murphy

    Murphy,

    Perfect- I didnít know what to ask when I read this thread so I asked questions by looking at what I had on me and use.

    My tools- incase you are interested

    1- agreed nothing better then 1911 for sidearm. Springfield TRP Operator/ Milt sparks rig.
    2- Modified Isosoles, ride the safety
    3- Current favorite load Berry plated 185 hollow base round nose/Starline brass/ 5.4 clays/ fed 150. Makes major for all the games I play - I always carry 2 extra mags 2nd mag carries this load cause itís a great grouse load and shoots same spot my self-defense load at 25 yards.
    4- Carry load- Barnes 185 XPB/ Starline Super Brass/ 10gr 3N37/ Fed 150. Where I live Black bears will likely soak these up rather then a 2 legged scumbags. Game I have shot with this load the pedals where folded backward and one or two pedals broke off. However great penetration with decent wound channel and 95 % weight retention with those that I have recovered.
    5- Weak side- Emerson Karambit waved folder. Emerson Commander is also favorite and rides strong side when in places handgun cannot go.

    In the short time here I have enjoyed reading your posts. Thanks for sharing your knowledge & experience.

    Default Questions for Murphy

    Murphy,
    I am thinking of buying a CZ 550 American Safari rifle in 375 H&H. I have never shot a big bore. Most of my hunting has been for deer in Western New York using a Remington 870 slug gun. I also have shot a Thompson Center Omega using two 50 grain Triple 7 pelets and a 200 grain bullet. Does the 375 recoil more than either the 12 ga. or 50 cal? Is it necessary to cross bolt, glass, slick-up the action, replace the recoil pad with a Limbsaver, etc. and put a muzzle brake on the new gun to shoot it easily and accurately?

    Thanks,
    Steeleman

    Default CZ Questions

    Steeleman,

    Cross bolt? No, it's already got 'em.
    Glass? Yeah, probably would help keep the screws tight and for accuracy.
    Slick up the Action? Yes, CZ's and most others are a little rough.
    Replace the pad? No, the CZ comes with a pretty good pad.
    Muzzle brake? No! Never. The 375 doesn't need recoil abatement.

    Thanks.
