Here are two seperate .404 J Rifles that I've been working on. Just thought I'd drop some photos of either side for those interested and those that suffer from custom rifle addiction.

Nice contrast in execution.
What actions were used?
What actors changed your execution style or are they done for others?

I'm assuming that is a custom made sling mount on the top rifle? I'm looking for something similar for a cz 375.

Beautiful rifles.

Both are beautiful, but the owner of the top rifle is a braver man than me!

looking forward to seeing those two all done up and ready to hunt.

Many of those who suffer from custom rifle addiction also suffer from detail addiction.

Please tell us more about the rifles.

A great pair of rifles for sure.

Is Hornady still making 404 Brass?

When I did my 404 loads way back, I noticed a distinct difference between Norma and Hornady on the head of the brass. went w/Norma

Stuart,
Yes they are, but as with all reloading items, if you can find it.

The 404 rifle with the heel and toe caps is using a FN 98 action
The other 404 rifle is using a Steyr 1912 action
What actors changed your execution style or are they done for others?

Very tasteful and excellent work Roger. I would be thrilled with either...


On the plains of hesitation lie the bleached bones of ten thousand, who on the dawn of victory lay down their weary heads resting, and there resting, died.

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch...
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!
- Rudyard Kipling

Life grows grim without senseless indulgence.
