Best "all-around" rifle caliber for big game hunting?
Hi i hope people will understand what i write here, because i am from finland:) i need help to decide good caliber for big game animals in africa and i hope to have some help from the people who has personal experience of the calibers on the field. i have hard time to choose what is god for my use 375 H&H or 416 Rigby or maybe 458 win. mag. so i hope that someone who has hunted whit these calibers would give me answer. thank you! :)
Here is my custom rifle part details
Ok i have finally come up whit an idea of my big game rifle. i will use a billet from this web site Väriyhdistelmät, erä ja urheilu | CWP Coloured Wood Products Oy i like the classic WAC :)but in classic safari model stock. my gunsmith will fit the iron in it:) i use cz 550 magnum as a doner to this project. it will have 24" custom barrel whit NECG express sights onsighted to 75 meters. and maybe leupold scope that i can put on and take off if neccecary. pachmayr old english recoil pad and mercury reducer in the stock and i will add there a grip cap from dakota, the traditional skeleton and i have a plan to fill the hole in it :) my friend is a carpenter and he is great when it comes to wood carving and he was happy to help me making a little medallion to fill that hole.i have one mammoth tusk and i will use a little part from that to make the medallion :) so you all must be thinking that what is the caliber.......well it is going to be 375H&H after a long long thinking that it will be my safari rifle caliber because it is the EMPEROR OF ALL ;) and i can shoot it well. i will put some pictures when i get the gun made. ou and there will be a mammoth carving on the magasine plate :) on the side will read 375H&H "MAMMOTH EXPRESS" :) I know that there will be many who does not like my ideas but i like it:) hope that someone will give me thums up for the project :)
