A friend and fellow .405 enthusiast had a great adventure in Australia and posted pix and story here:

Very cool and especially with a 405!


A good principle to guide me through life: “This is all I have come to expect, standard lackluster performance. Trust nothing, believe no one and realize it will only get worse…”

Jorge,
Peter really has a huge collection of lever guns and his favorite big bore lever is the 1895 .405.
I was part of the sight-in team back when he first came over to pick up the rifle and hunt at Hondo. It is very accurate and with the scope some groups were one ragged hole. We also shot go-bang blocks and that was fun.
That trip, he took a nice elk and a big bison with it. He has taken a lot of hogs and chital with back in Australia.

He will here in a couple of weeks to take a trophy whitetail and then back again next year with another Aussie .405 shooter to take some more big stuff.

The road goes on forever and the party never ends.
