if i HAD to pick one it would be my go to gun, it was my second ever centerfire rifle:

Winchester Model 70 African Express in 458 Winchester Magnum





its sporting a leupold VX7 scope. way more scope than it needs but it works.

however if a rifle or pistol isnt a favorite (other than my sig pos mosquito) it doesnt stay in my gunsafe and is quickly sold.

i use reduced load solids around the same power range of a light 45-70 load on game animals like hog and deer where the meat is edible. vermin like yotes and such full bore loads using lighter 300ish bullets. smaller than 300's tend to shed jackets and copper foul the barrel too severely from the speed.

I'd give a nut for that rifle. A kidney too. Blood type o positive. Just sayin. Ever sense I saw Dirty Harry shoot one at the crazy hippie I've been hooked. What if an elephant got loose? Scout motto "Be Prepared."

What year was it built?

I'm confident saying no one will top that. I love your rifle.
