The CZ 550 you mentioned Mr. Big has had my attention for several years now. It's by far the best value in a rifle with the classic African dangerous game features that is available today. I'd love to have one in 375H&H, 416 Rigby, 458Win Mag and 458 Lott as long as I'm dreaming out loud here. \:\) $1,027 won't touch any other bolt action in those chamberings.

The only thumper rifle I have is a Weatherby Mark V in 460 Weatherby. It thumps with the best of them if you can take it. I load it with various 300 or 350 grain bullets when I use it for deer though. It can reach 3,000 fps with a 300 grain bullet but I load it down a bit to 2,800+.

Gives you confidence when walking through total darkness hearing strange unidentifiable noises too. \:\)

i have a 375 ruger that thumps pretty good and a browning 375 h&h thats carbine lenght that makes you sure that every shot counts but my favorite is my 376 steyr
i have shot a 458 but at 160 lbs it really pushes me around
