    Mauser M12 extreme synthetic stock

    I have a Sauer 404 with synth stock, love it, but probably go with a wood stock for it soon. FYI I have been advised against using those gun socks for what you want, when I was living in the tropics, wanted to do that, but a local gunshop owner said not to as they did absorb moisture and caused...

    Can we please stop talking about "flat shooting" cartridges

    Why not? have you shot your 9.3 at longer distances or looked at a bullet drop chart? I disagree that it drops heaps, go and have a look. with my hand loads and zero on my 9.3 at that distance, I would only need about 4-5 inches hold over. And that's just because I have it zero's dead on at 100m.

    Hello from Bwana Moja. Africa is NOT "The Dark Continent"

    For someone that says he writes, and researches, a lot. Sure missed the pot on why it was called the dark continent. I should know, I'm from there. Great way to kill some time while suffering a head cold.

    404J Options/recommendations

    I have One of these with a 404J and 300WM barrel. Works well, and is a pleasure to shoot in 300WM, but needs a little more weight to make the 404 comfy to shoot. will either be adding a bit of weight and a mercury reducer or thinking of having a wood stock made for it. Bloody good travel rifle...

    .308 Rifle help

    If those are the rifles you are set on, personally, I would go Sauer, I have their 404 model with a few barrels. The quality is next level, even on the cheaper 100 models. Far better than other rilfes in that class. But go play with them and get what fits and feels right for you. I don't like...
