Concidering the rifles he already has, I doubt the two grand means much. He's already got a double rifle in 9.3 x 74R, a rifle from Remington's custom shop and a mod 140 Merkel in 470 nitro, I suspect that is also a double rifle.

input on choosing new gun

It is a double, put $2,000 means a lot to anybody, or so it should. As often as I trade rifles, what I spend is more of an investment. The more I spend the more I'll be able to trade for down the road. If I sold everything today, I wouldn't wind up even, but if I wait 10-15 years, I'll be sitting pretty. I have considered and am considering a cz. They are good rifles, but they require a lot of tinkering, rebedding, etc. The reason I metnioned mausers specifically was because I've found those specific rifles (i.e. they are available for purchase right now. Thanks for the input fellas. Thumbs up

You might consider a weatherby dgr (dangerous game rifle). I don't believe they are still a cataloged item; however any weatherby dealer should be able to order one for you out of the custom shop.

Go cutitng edge. 375 RUGER !
More power than the H&H mag, in a 30-06 length case. Also "Nesika Bay Precision" makes the best rifle actions money can buy, give their website a hard look.

I'd suggest a 404 Dakota.
400 gr at the trajectory of a 30-06 with a 180gr.

Thanks to all for the input. Wound up buying a model 70 375H&H froma guy of AR that actualy lives in Austin here with me. Considering buying his other one in a 458 Lott, but with my 470, I don't now if I need it. However, that's never stopped me before.

Here's a pic of it and some others. 470 nitro merkel on top, then 416 remington custom shop, new mod 70 375 H&H, and my Ruger 338 win mag. Click on it for a better look. Thanks again guys,
