Not sure if this is the area to post but since it is a double question here goes. Headed back next year for a Cape buff hunt for me an my old Army buddy, we are both taking 450NE doubles. Was planning on brining my 9.3 for plains game. Have my wife set for sable, gemsbok, and warthog, with her 275 rigby and a 9.3x62 mauser. Due to interest in a piece of property I own looks like I will possibly be able in include a lion on my safari. The 9.3 would normally get my vote but recently traded a couple nice shotguns for a 405WIN double. Both are very well regulated and I am comfortable with either. Out of respect to Teddy the 405 has historical draw. So my question to those that have hunted lion what would be your choice and why?
