    The .375 and Leopard - I need a bullet

    I'd reckon the woodleigh 300Gr round nose projectile would be a great all rounder - plenty of impact area up the front to transfer energy to the game.

    SOUTH AFRICA: Anyone Hunted with Dalerwa Ventures For Wildlife?

    G'day jerome, thanks for the reply - I have been looking at a hell of a lot of outfitters over the last month - looking at coming across in Sept next year. Also considering Bluecliff Safaris. Dalerwa have got some really good reports from their references. Trying to do Kudu, Gemsbock...

    350 grains in 458 lott

    Its still a little uncomfortable to shoot, although it recoils alot less than it does with the fullpower 500gr loads. With a 405gr pill loaded at 2300 Fps you are still a good 300-400 Fps in front of a 45/70 depending on the rifle/load. That said, most 458 Lotts are heavy rifles and the...

    350 grains in 458 lott

    I just took my 458 Lott up to Cape York (far North Queensland in Australia) and shot two scrub bulls and a few pigs with it using thin jacketed 405 gr projectiles made by an Australian company.

    Hunting Rifles or Target Rifles

    I own a few big bores (bolt action) and will pick up a Ruger no 1 tropical in 375 H+H in the next year or so when they become more readily available. I am of the opinion that a single shot is the ideal rifle for most hunts (culls excepted) as any hunter who plans on taking more than one shot at...

    Anyone using a 45/70

    The BLRs are nice rifles. I think you would also be surprised by the quality of the marlins, mine has been accurate and very dependable. It is also capable of handling stout handloads with no issue. As for DG, probably not, there are better choices out there. That said, any of the thin...
