    Prvi Partizan Ammunition and Gemsbok

    Thanks everyone I'll take everything in consideration. The Wildebeest that I shot was at about 115meters. After going through bone, lungs and heart, I recovered the round under the skin on the other side. I weighed it and it maintained 85% of it's original weight. To such an extent that I...

    Nikko Stirling Nighteater 8 x 56

    Hi all I'm looking at putting the Nikko Stirling Nighteater 8x56 scope on my Voere .308. I've heard some mixed feedback about the rifle recoil being to hard on the scope but then others say it would be perfect. Any advice?

    Which round is the best?

    Hi all. Very nice forum. Only just stumbled across it. So here's my question. Which is the best round for plains game. I am currently hunting with 170gr FMJ's but wondering if I shouldn't go for a lighter weight soft point. Going for Kudu, Nyala, Impala and warthog. Any suggestions?
