I use all Heym rifles, 22-250 sr30,30-06 sr30 and 458 safari (untill its replaced with an even specialer one).
Anyone else use them? any comments?
I got the 30-06 for my 1st Africa trip in 1995, and never used the 243 again and they were exactly the same rifle except for the size of the hole in the end.Just personal preference I suppose.
When I wanted a 22-250 I rang Heym and they said; "nope, they don`t make one and weren`t considering it", so Litts got me a 308 action and sent it to Callum Ferguson, all I wanted was a 22-250 to shoot foxes with a light,fast and flat bullet, and boy oh boy does it do that !
Owe alot of thanks to Dave G @ Litts for all the help there.
They fitted a Schillin 26 in barrel, and basically was tailored to shoot Federal 40gr hollow points and it does it very well.
About 12 mnths after my 22-250 was finished, Heym brought out there 22-250 range, did I give them the idea I wonder ? ha ha
The 458 I bought for my first Buffalo hunt, and thats a craker too,will be shame to get rid of it, but can`y justify 2 big rifles realy, or can I ?
I use Swarovskis on all of them and I am more than happy with the rifles and the `scopes.
Would love a double next too, but will have to see how things go.
