    You have some nice ones there RCS pity the water separates us we could have some good conversations on cartridges I have some pretty cool wildcats that I'll start on after the N.E's as for some ppl it may be the first time they have seen a particular round.
    I have one called the "Western Hunter" it was a privately made round submitted to the Police ballistics branch for testing before they would ok it to be legal, as far as I know it is not commercially available Graeme Williams designed it for his top end buffalo hunting business.

    I have yet to get a reply from anyone on the roll crimp on the 1944 MW MkVII 303 round I posted in #67.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Rigby .350 Magnum Nitro

    Here we have my Rigby .350 Magnum Nitro.

    The .350 Rigby Magnum was introduced in 1908 as the successor to the popular 400/350 Nitro Express. Rigby developed this rimless caliber for use in the Mauser magnum length action. No other maker, at that time, offered this combination in a magnum-length bolt action rifle and Rigby’s name became synonymous for the best in Mauser-actioned big game rifles.

    The .350 can propel a .358 dia., 225 grain bullet at 2,625 fps with 3,440 ft.-lbs. of energy. Big game hunters began using this caliber on elephant, rhino and buffalo, although it was never advertised or recommended for such heavy game. Rigby’s .350 Magnum became the most widely used medium bore caliber throughout Africa and is still used today on Safari.
