    I was in the Navy for 20 years. I live in the small town of Preston, the junction to 54 and 65 Highway.
    I'm planning for a plains game hunt in about three years. I may be picking your brain for any information that can help me plan this hunt.
    Thanks
    Paul

    Paul will be more than happy to help. My brain isn't that big but puck away all you want. I was fortunate enough to have a retired Air Force O6 help me with a lot of questions I had and he even pointed out a lot of stuff I had not considered. Send me a private mail when you want to pick my brain and I will give you my email and cell number.

    I smell a Missouri AH GTG brewing. I just got back to Houston from two days on the retirement property in Ozark County.

    Hunted:
    Namibia (1), South Africa (3) & USA (most Western States, including AK & HI). Too bad spear fishing is not called "fish hunting" or, I could add a few extra countries (couldn't resist weaving that in somehow, sorry).
    Welcome Shellback87,

    The .300 H&H was designed primarily for Africa.
    I took one on my first trip to Africa (Namibia) with a 4x scope/180 grain bullets and it worked perfectly.
    There were no eland where I was, and I would have used heavier bullets if there was, or perhaps a larger bore rifle.
    But a .300 H&H will certainly put an eland in the stewpot with the right bullet in the right place, like most any big game caliber.
    You will be happy with yours no doubt.

    Cheers,
    Velo Dog.
