Here's some photos of the 92 that I bought from Holt's that I posted on here earlier. Surprise it's marked Holland & Holland. Has been refinished and was done over pitting. The rifling is a bit worn as well. I'll see how it shoots as soon as the doctor releases my shoulder for shooting.

Casper, did you have to reduce the overall length of the cartridge with a 270 grain bullet to less than that of a normal 375 Express cartridge to allow them to fit into the magazine, or has your rifle been modified in some way to allow standard length cartridges to fit.

The cast loads that I'm going to shoot as soon as the doctor says that I can are .293. Running them through the rifle the last one in the clip has problems hitting the chamber sometimes. The bullets are 264 grain flat nose. The only ones that I have been able to find on the net.
