Splendid article , old friend . On a related subject , the bonded bear claw and sledge hammer solid bullets have been reported to have deteriorated in quality since their original inventor , a Mr. Jack Carter stopped being involved in their manufacturing process . Daniel gave me this news...
I second Poton's view . Sambhar Deer makes for excellent eating ! You can actually cure the loins like bacon .
I baked this pizza a month back and decided that it could benefit from a
little bit of venison " bacon " on top .
If you would like the recipe , please do not hesitate to ask...
This story sent Christmas chills down my spine . It was like re-living that nightmare from 1969 , when we had received the news. I will personally disagree with you about you not being a good human being . I have seen the coolies employed by Allwyn Cooper Limited . They were a most...

That is quite a fitting way for a Shikari to get introduced to chicken fried steak ! My favorite chicken fried steak in the United States of America comes from a small diner in Texas , named " Sodolak's Country Inn " . When l visit your fine country again six months later , it will...
You already know mine all too well ! However , let me be a part of this survey as well .
1) French Brevex magnum mauser mechanism ( my all time favorite )
2) Springfield model 1903 mechanism
3) Remington model 700 ( for non dangerous animals )
( I would also list the Winchester model 70...
Of course , l will provide a photograph to show on this thread , my young American friend . I do apologise for being missing from African Hunting forums for the last few days . This is the most hectic part of the year for a tea planter .
The name of the rifle was a zkk- 600 made by the Czechoslovakian firm , Brno . He would use it to hunt Sambhar deer in the area near the Sundarban forests . Recently , however this gentleman and his family have decided to move to Europe permanently . Thus , the gentleman offered to sell me his...
Unfortunately , during my career as a professional Shikari in Darjeeling , India from 1962 to 1970 , the only 9.3 millimeter calibre which l had seen clients bring was the 9.3 millimeter mauser calibre and this was invariably in bolt operation rifles
My learned colleague @Major...
Thank you so much for your support . I would never intentionally use any demeaning terminology to describe anyone in this community . It is not who l am . However , if the term is perceived as inappropriate these days , then l will refrain from using it.
It is my mistake and l sincerely apologise for the use of the improper term . When l was a school boy in Darjeeling , that word " Caucasian " was taught by our school masters to describe white people. You have known me on this community for quite some time . I would never write...
Welcome to one of the best ( If not THE BEST ) international Shikar communities in the entire world . You will find yourself among friends and fellow sports-men from all over the world.
What a brilliant article to make your debut in this wonderful community .
Ah , if only l lived in...
After India won her Independence in 1947 , most British people had gone back to the United Kingdom . The locals were getting increasingly hostile towards any Caucasian people remaining in India and so more and more Caucasians were leaving India , as the locals began to confiscate their...
I have read books about His Royal Excellence , the Maharaja of Kuch Bihar where he makes passing mention of pig-sticking . A Shikari would would get on a stallion with a trishu in his hands ( Six foot long spear with three points , that look like a large pitch-fork or trident ) . A...

Thank you so much for your kind words and support. I am indeed very passionate about fine sporting arms and hunting , ever since l was a little boy .
I could definitely use temperature insensitive powders . Bangladesh can be rather hot in the summer and rather cold in the winter ...
Thank you so much for your kind words and support , my young American friend . It is interesting to note that l have exactly the same ammunition as you have showed me in your photograph .
175 grain soft nose cartridges made from the firm , Winchester .
On a related subject , would...
With a .375 Holland and Holland magnum calibre bolt operation rifle , one simply cannot go wrong . A model 70 rifle from the firm , Winchester is simply the best off-the-shelf rifle in this calibre , in my humble opinion .
If l were to name my favorite .375 Holland & Holland magnum calibre bolt...
This is a very big compliment coming from a man who killed nine enemy soldiers with a single hand- grenade .
Regarding the machine-gun post , believe me when l tell you that it was an extremely lucky shot . Did you know that the cartridge was the last one left in the magazine ? I do not...
Why yes . The sight peeps out and it is a beauty . My niece's father-in-law tells me that the peeping sight on a rifle made by the firm , Brno is an indica that the rifle was made prior to 1975.
Oh , l thought that l had already posted the picture in an above post . Look .
The first bullet hit the eighth circle . The second and third bullet hit the bulls- eye .
The other details are in page four of this thread .
But Bee Maa,
Poton ( Major Khan ) was the one who got ME the cartridges today .
Your advice is well noted . I have already told my niece today over telephone that every time she comes to Bangladesh , she will bring me 250 cartridges of the Norma Orynx 156 grain soft nose variety.
I will always...
We are not American , We are not European , we are not Indians , we are not Bangladeshis . First and foremost , we are all hunters with a passionate love for the sport and for the tools of the trade. Could a stronger bond between all hunters world-wide ever exist ?
In two months , l will acquire all the necessary re-loading components to develop my desired hand-loaded cartridges . And then , l will bother all of you a great deal to help guide me in tailoring the perfect load for this calibre , my young American friend.

It is like you can read minds ! I do have a safari planned with old Poton in 2022 . I wish to shoot a Gemsbok ( those horns look magnificent and l hear that their meat is excellent ) and an African bull elephant . The Gemsbok , l hope to secure with my 7 millimeter mauser calibre...
Gentlemen ( and l address everyone here ) , l have successfully fired my first shots from my new 7 millimeter mauser .
Here are the details . Our dear Major Khan took the first train to Sylhet today and met me at 10 : 00 AM in the morning . He successfully acquired for me , an entire...
Sambhar deer are extremely large . They are similar in size to an American elk.
That is where l wonder if the Norma Orynx 156 grain bullets will be adequate. I have zero doubt that it will prove adequate for a Chital deer.
This is not done . You went through a great deal of trouble to get them for me , old friend. You already spent a great deal of money this time treating Fabliha's In-laws for free at your bistro . You must accept the payment !
I can ask my relatives from the United States of America to bring me any ammunition brand which l desire .
Since you gentlemen are more experienced than l with modern munitions , l will pay heed to your advice and ask my relatives to bring me Norma Orynx soft nose cartridges .
