    Which Elephant Rifle and cartridge?

    Going back to the original question, a scoped .416 Remington Magnum with a factory loaded Federal Premium Safari 400 grain Woodleigh Hydro Solid is an efficient elephant killer. So efficient; however, that you may feel cheated. After growing up hunting whitetails with similar setups, it was...

    Tips before going on your first elephant hunt

    @KTK458 - I'd like to buy you a drink if you ever make it to my neck of the woods. That was utmost beautiful. Impossible to follow. I, myself, had read every book in the English language on the hunting of the African elephant. Not only the books published in English but also the ones...

    There are no parallel examples of criminal law in this country unrelated to the prior bad acts of the Defendant. Even then, the appropriate motions (404b) have the be filed by the state and ruled upon by the trial judge outside of the presence of the jury before said acts can be introduced...

    Rust Film Shooting - Family Attorney for deceased: Animated Video

    I never said she wouldn't have criminal liability - I said in my state a manslaughter conviction shouldn't make it to the jury. There is also the misdemeanor charge of Criminally Negligent Homicide. But if your question is, "Why wouldn't the armorer be convicted of Manslaughter?," then my...

    Rust Film Shooting - Family Attorney for deceased: Animated Video

    Although I generally come here to escape work, I suppose I'm feeling frisky tonight. In my state (not New Mexico), allowing a case of manslaughter against the amorer to go to the jury would be reversible error by the trial judge. Here, on an indictment of manslaughter, the Defendant's oral...

    Elephant Frontal Brain Shot Placement

    Thank you. To answer the questions: it was 27 yards. We were closing in to take a side brain at 25 yards when he heard us and swung face on. I was on sticks. PH was filming with a standard iPhone. Not sure if top of brain or center although I do know no insurance shot was needed or taken.

    Wanted Winchester Model 70 Super Grade 7x57

    It appears @WAB is correct - somewhat a bit of a hybrid. Differences I notice: the barrel is marked "FEATHERWEIGHT," the crossbolt isn't the standard engraved metal and the wood is most outstanding for a factory supergrade.

    Who Needs A Scope On An Elephant Rifle?

    Listen to your PH. Mine recommended a scope. I bought a 1-6x24 and mounted in QD rings. After he sees you shoot he might tell you that you can remove. For what it’s worth, I ended up using my scope and am glad I did.

    Model 70 Safari Express will shoot lights out out the box. Some say the .375 is front heavy. The .416 is downright perfection; however, there is a pencil-barrel .375 on gunbroker right now for 5 figures if you're keen. If not, consider the .416 or wait on what the group can procure. Good luck!

    The deals are because the PH bought a 2 million acre concession for only $20,000 over the next 5 years and negotiated the cheapest bull elephants in history with the local council due to the safari industry taking such a beating from COVID.
