Hello and thank you all for the information.
Well, I am glad that what I did fear was some the reasons for these has to to with the user, not the gun and also to that Weatherby did use poor bullets, a good bullet in 375 H&H may not be a good bullet in a 378 WM, same to be with a 450 NE vs a 460...

Thank you for the link Jacques Strauss, will have a look at it.
Hello and good day all.

Have been, to South Africa, on one plains game Safari.
That was, not a good trip at all. It is my fault, did not do the checking of references and the outfitter good enough. Now I know.
What I am seeking is a Safari done with...
Thank you all.
Yes, been to South Africa on one safari, planning my next one now.
So, there will come some questions, need help. My first Safari was not a good one.
All my fault, did not check references that good and did not ask the right questions. But, guess I am not the only one...
