    Reloading or factory loads for Dangerous Game?

    I have personally seen more misfires from hunting buddies factory ammo, than I have had with my personal handloads. Most firearms I own, I have never fired a factory round through them. The ones I purchased new have only seen the factory test round in them. On PG and especially DG I am not...

    Best bullets for 7mm-08 hunting African plains game?

    We just got back and took the same combo. I shot 250gr swift A frames out of 338wm. They are hammers. Only bullet recovered was from eland (it broke skin on off side but didn't exit) I was not satisfied with load results for 160 gr in 7mm-08 and settled with 140 gr Sierra's btsp. Impala was all...

    Oal for 375 h&h In Ruger No 1??????

    Hello folks, I just purchased a Ruger No.1 in 375 h&h. Was getting ready to develop a load and measured the chamber in this rifle. Specs show 3.6" oal, this rifle measures 3.735" to the lands. Is this much jump common? Depending upon what an individual rifle likes, I normally seat bullets...

    Looking for information

    We were there 30 days ago, with the exchange rate at that time the zebra skins varied depending upon grade/size between $900 & $1050. I didn't look at price of springbok hides

    416 rigby or 416 remington?

    The Rigby is definitely a classic and will always be popular. The Remington is a newer cartridge and easier to find brass and loaded ammo. I chose a Remington based on that alone. I doubt a buff or anything else will be able to tell the little difference in ballistics between the two.

    Ruminating on the idea of building/ buying the wife a safari rifle

    I built my bride a 7mm-08. Mountain rifle type, light weight. Recoil is a little stout for her above 140gr bullets. She loves it but wanted a bit more hp for larger plainsgame. In process of putting together a 7mm RM where she will have a brake on it here in states and PH will keep a suppressor...

    Soaking Clothes In Permethrin

    I had a tip shared with me about 10 years ago after a week long trip to Ticksas (Texas) county MO where the ticks would carry you off. Not uncommon to have 50-60 crawling on you at any time. Started using Irish Spring soap and have yet to have a tick ever attach since. They may crawl on you...

    .416 Rem bullet for Cape Buffalo

    400 gr a frame at 2400 is perfect. I have 2 recovered from buffalo that penetration was over 48" and retained over 95%. When they perform that good you really don't need a solid.

    What animal to shoulder mount

    We were not going to do any taxidermy on our 1st trip. That starts to change when wife is blessed with a unique kudu (wide) and then I ended up with an almost 43"+ buff. Ended up having 4 mounts and 1 euro done. Very glad I did. Everytime I look at, just a reminder of the adventure. Not sure...

    Shipping Companies you used; Would use again or Wouldn't

    I don't think Kruger Human is with same company. We received our mounts from Kruger and I couldn't have been happier with taxidermy, euro mount, and crating. All was top notch, very meticulously done. I would definitely use his services again.

    .416 Rem Mag Issue

    There is a spray able product that I think is called liquid electrical tape. Mask off outside of your rings and spray a light coating on inside of rings. Reassemble and let dry. Your problem will be solved and not terrible to work with or remove if you decide to change rings or optics later.

    Advise for loading 7mm Rem Mag

    My Rem 700 7mag shoots h4831 extremely well. Does good with IMR but prefers H powder. You should be able to find a sweet spot with velocity you are trying to obtain.

    Why not a Single Shot?

    I have hunted DG with a Ruger#1, as stated earlier a 2nd shot can be made in comparable time or less than with a standard bolt. The 3rd shot does take a bit more time. I checked with PH and outfitter prior to hunt and both told me that if anyone is crazy enough to hunt Buffalo with a single...

    Ruger No 1 *** Questions ***

    a Blessed Easter to you all

    Amen, He has Risen Indeed. It is real easy to say that Christ died for all the sins of the world. But when we look at it that "MY" sins put Jesus on the cross it gets personal. So thankful for God's Love, Mercy, and Grace.

    First Timer African Safari Common Mistakes To Avoid

    I took a pair of lightweight hikers and light hunting boots. Both waterproof (big mistake) being water proof doesn't allow for moisture to escape as well. Took me a month to get over the jungle rot on my feet from 2 weeks in waterproof shoes and the heat in RSA.
