    I don't pimp my site here, I felt it was a bit disrespectful to the owners but then again I didn't start this thread and I'm a huge proponent of the right gear when you have it with you is better than a house ful of crap you left at home http://quietsurvivalist.com/category/living-in-the-bush/...

    Which .375 H&H ..... Montana Rifle or CZ 550 tuned

    I think weight depends on perspective... I carried an M47 Dragon-37lbs A PRC 77-17lbs An M60-23 lbs So a 10-11 lb rifle is not a huge deal for me and I prefer a rifle I enjoy shooting. I shoot mine a lot, fired 30 rounds off the bench, no sled zeroing because I didnt sleep for 36 hours and...

    Which .375 H&H ..... Montana Rifle or CZ 550 tuned

    My opinion only here I have a Mod 70 Safari I purchased last spring and if I werent divorced already I would be now because I love firing this rifle. It is heavy BUT not overly so. I had no issues carrying it Elk hunting nor hiking with it this summer. A good sling and a load it likes and you...

    A really good rifle sling: Slogan Ultraflex

    IMO You have to consider the situation where a single point sling works and the rifle its attached too. The M4 has a 14 inch barrel, is much lighter than most big game rifles as well as a foot shorter. The single point works if you never sit down , if you do the rifle which is attached to you...

    A really good rifle sling: Slogan Ultraflex

    I bought 2, because everything up until now was lighter than 10lbs and the knowledge base here has more experience with heavier rifles. I have 1 on my Win mod 70, and the only thing concerning me is the threads on the screw, and wear from carrying the rifle. Has anyone messed up the threads bad...

    Please critique my packing list

    From working in the Customs field for over 20 years Keep at least 2 copies of your passport separate from the original, as well as the 4457. A copy of your passport will not let you board an aircraft but it will provide a start for the US consul to issue you a temp document to return home. A...

    Best rifle companies and calibers for dangerous game?

    Im new to the larger bores as well and I selected the Mod 70 Safari. Mostly because I have a close friend who has a Super Grade Ive become addicted to shooting. Its funny saying Im new to the big bores because I have an 1859 Sharps in 50/70 and a Marlin Guide gun in 45/70, but I consider my new...

    Im a recent follower of this forum I bought a 375 H&H after years of shooting a friends rifle.
