    If you had both a 375 and a 416

    I will be with J.P. Kleinhans in the Eastern Cape. Taking my .375 H&H and .300 H&H for PG. In 2022 it is Buffalo with the Dakota in .416 Rigby. I have a two sight set up for that, a Trijicon 1-6x Accupoint and an RMR.

    375 H&H or 416 RIgby

    My favorite is the .416 Rigby. I have found that well placed large diameter holes are best (with exceptions of course, i.e. W.D.M. Bell). If you are spending $10K on a hunt, don't take the chance of losing the game by being under-gunned. Take the largest caliber rifle you can shoot well and...

    CZ 550 9.3x62, barrel mounted recoil lug, and B&C stock fit Qs

    My CZ 550 Safari Classic has the similar dovetail in the barrel. It dropped into the B&C stock without issue.

    Best Distance to Zero a 416 Rigby

    I zero my RMR topped .416 Rigby at 25-yds/m with the 400gr A-Frame. That is also zero at 100-yds/m (computed on ballistic calculator, confirmed at actual range). That trajectory gives this particular round with my rifle a point-blank-range of 200-yds/m and places the round within a six (6) inch...

    What Watch do you wear when you hunt?

    Tudor Black Bay Stainless on a NATO strap. This my everyday wear and it never leaves my wrist. I retired my Omega Sea Master GMT because it had been a few places and shows the scars proudly. It was also a Sea Master 50th Anniversary Edition so I wanted to preserve it. The Tudor has proven itself...

    Dakota 76 African .416 Rigby Rifle

    I topped it with a Trijicon RMR. It'll clover leaf rounds at 100 yds/m. This is for buffalo in 2022. I was on the fence about the .450 Rigby because of the .458 bullet. The determining factor was ammunition cost and availability. The .416 Rigby seemed to be more plentiful and less expensive to...

    .450 Rigby whats your opinion

    Newest addition to the big bore collection. Dakota 76 African .416 Rigby. I topped it with a Trijicon RMR. It'll clover leaf rounds at 100 yds/m. This is for buffalo in 2022. I was on the fence about the .450 Rigby because of the .458 bullet. The determining factor was ammunition cost and...

    .416 Rigby for Plains Game?

    The way I see it, shoot what you enjoy shooting if it is going to harvest whatever game you are harvesting. Personally, I don't like tracking game that I haven't shot inside of 20-yards when bow hunting. I shot a great whitetail (11-pt) buck with a .270 at 204-yards measured by range finder. I...

    Requesting information on traveling through Doha, Qatar

    I'm looking at QA now instead of Delta. Do you have any additional information on the packing of rifles and ammunition?

    Greetings from Virginia

    Yup, Virginia here. I am heading out next July. I found a new unfired CZ-550 Safari Classic .375 H&H on the used rack at Green Top last September. That is having some work done to make it "my own". Great cartridge. Very fun to shoot.

    Requesting information on traveling through Doha, Qatar

    I am in the same situation. Booked with J.P. Kleinhans for July 2021. Trying to get an idea of cost and what will be available right now is ridiculous. Once they open those flights up, their going to get slammed with rebookings from hunters that got cancelled this year.

    I read your post about the William Douglas & Sons rifle. Since you have hands on experience, I was wondering if you wouldn't mind posting additional pictures of the proof marks and your impression about the weapon. As you indicated, there seemed to be a lot of bad information put out. Thank you...

    Can anyone identify RSA air carriers that are transporting firearms?

    Can anyone identify RSA air carriers that are transporting firearms. South Africa Airline may be going bankrupt and I have been advised that British Airways will not transport firearms. My hunt is booked for 2021 with my U.S. to Johannesburg flight on Delta, final destination is Port Elizabeth.

    Vortex or Leupold for 375 H&H

    Leupold VX-R 2x-7x on my CZ 550 .375 H&H. I scoped all of my hunting rifles with a variant of the VX-R.
