    Recommendations for the best air rifle?

    I have an Air Arms .22 PCP rifle. It will shoot 1/2 moa @ 50 m with my Leupold rimfire scope. I get about 50 shots off of a charge from a 20 l cylinder. They have really good triggers and accuracy that will compete with your centre fire rifles at shorter ranges (up to 50 m).

    Does an all round TSX or TTSX exist?

    Ha Ha, yes I could load it hotter but it works perfectly as is. Might lose a chrony competition on the interwebs but that’s okay!

    Does an all round TSX or TTSX exist?

    I hunt everything with a TSX 270 gr. Hand loads with Varget give me 2611 FPS with 4087 ftlbs energy. They are very accurate in my CZ 550 and recoil is very manageable for a quick second shot. The 270 gr TSX expands perfectly at these velocities (Limpopo hunting so inside 200 m) and does very...

    Which is the best game meat?

    We tried to eat a hippo that we shot after it had killed an employee and the operative word is “tried”. It was tough and pungent. My favorites are Eland, kudu and hartebeest.

    Survey: Your Favorite. 30 Caliber

    .308 but only because I have one and it works so well in the bush. 150 gr TSX at 2600 FPS is great medicine for Wildebeest and kudu. If I owned a 30-06 it would probably be that!

    Another useless survey- which three rifles for you?

    #4 is close to what I chose in actuality. I have a CZ550 in .375 and .308 and a Mauser in .22. So #4!

    Vortex or Leupold for 375 H&H

    Leupold VX6 1-6 on my .375 H&H CZ550. Great scope, if something happened to it I would buy another exactly the same. 6 X is more than enough for bushveld hunting.

    Considerations for rifle selection you should consider for hunting/SHTF rifle

    Dooms day prepping is fun! I have CZ rifles in .308, .375, a 5.56 semi, a variety of 9mm handguns and enough reloading gear to keep it all fed.

    Compare Recoil

    I have shot a .458 express and .458 Lott in addition to my .375 H&H. All of them were big guns, CZ 550 with American stocks and although the .458 recoiled more than the .375 I experience them to be very similar. A hard, slow push that rocks me back with no pain. My short barrel Ruger #1 in 7mm...

    Lightweight Mono Metal Bullets For Buffalo

    I use 270 gr TSX out of my .375 @ 2500 FPS for everything from impala to eland. Always had textbook performance at Bushveld distances, 50 - 150 m. Very good penetration and expansion on Wildebeest and eland at those ranges. I have never hunted buffalo but will use the 270 TSX when I do.

    M70 Safari Express 458 Win Mag vs CZ550 458 Lott

    I glass bedded both of my CZ 550 rifles when I had them free floated. Made no difference to my .375 accuracy, which was already moa, but a really big improvement on the .308. I would do it were I you.

    CZ 550 Safari Magnum 300 Win Mag?

    Definitely a feed ramp problem with larger calibers. Easy to fix though, as I did with my .375 H&H.

    CZ 550 Safari Magnum 300 Win Mag?

    I have a CZ 550 in .308 and a CZ .223 that worked flawlessly out the box. Extremely accurate and reliable. My CZ 550 in .375 had feeding problems which a bit of polishing solved. How many CZ rifles have you owned and struggled with?

    45-70 Performance

    Sectional Density = Bullet Weight (Grains) divided by 7000 (grains in a pound) then divided by squared diameter. This is the only math that matters in sectional density. The heavier the bullet the greater the sectional density for a given diameter. Length only comes into play because heavier...

    My calibers for hunting in Africa

    Only if I couldn’t get closer than 500 m!
