    Because I’m an Addict. :bag: :confused: :grin:

    Eventually I’ll make it to Africa for a Cape Buffalo hunt. And been looking into a Brown Bear hunt in Alaska for awhile.

    I already own a .375 H&H and a .416 Rem Mag, but what the hell?
    Might as well. ;)

    This one is a beauty and the original owner, a super nice guy, had an Allen Precision “Pain Killer” muzzle brake installed. He said it feels .30-06/.300 Win Mag like with it on.

    Got a case of Barnes Vor-TX 450gr TSX for it for a steal of a deal on GB for it. :)

    Now for some obligatory gun porn, courtesy of the seller. But as soon as I pick it up I’ll get new ones.

    Nice pick up. Great big bore game gun. And with Ammo to boot!
    Hope to see a nice trophy some day!

    Very nice!

    If the brake does indeed reduce felt recoil that much, that would be great. I used to shoot 300 Win Mag as a 'fun gun' at the range. Some folks did kinda look at me funny though... :confused:

    You must really hate your shoulder LOL!! Let me know if you start planning an Alaska brown bear trip and I can point you in the right direction or help with gear selection. Born and raised there and tons of my friends are outfitters and guides. Enjoy the new cannon and impending shoulder replacement

    I had a Ruger #1 in 375 HH. Only shot 3 times before selling it.

    I don't call that being an addict. That's just a logical progression of need. :)

    Being an addict would be already having a perfectly good .458 Win mag and then deciding to have .458 Lott built "just because". Which is what my dad did, who by the way has zero plans to go to Africa.

    To clarify, my dad didn't have his win mag converted. He had a separate Lott built. Because everyone needs 2 .458's I guess? lol
