Duterte seems to have a working system ;)
Lather, rinse, repeat. The cycle rarely breaks..
What will a replacement do for you? It’s not YOUR kudu then? If it’s just a small spot maybe a taxidermist can repair it?
Going by the pic it...
@sambar hunter - who is bringing in the barre?
Still not as bad as:
Can always run .416 bullets through a die to get them down to the right size too.
Why hunt a captive bred animal though? I personally don’t see the appeal *shrugs*
I always thought a red belly would make a neat belt..! Legalities ruin that though!
Or a milder venomous snake to learn on. I’ve played a bit with red bellies but haven’t worked up to a brown yet..! I wouldn’t start on a taipan,...
Could he fill me in with how to do it in QLD? In SA you just do a venomous Snake handling course and Bobs ya uncle. It’s a bit more complex in...
I’ve heard taipans are making their way further and further south.
Tiger snakes - have them here, about as northerly as they occur I believe....
Can’t let nature do its thing, silly billy!
And bears behind every tree!
@One Day - about 11lbs is the number I had in mind. There’s a beautiful one on GI on a Champlin action. Too rich for me but ah well!
I’ve always thought a .378 weatherby loaded with 350gr bullets would drill its way through absolutely anything that walks. Intend on one day...
Exact opposite here.
I live in Aus and will take our venomous snakes over your large mammalian carnivores any day!
.450 nitro. My first classic big game cartridge.. (has a .458 win mag before it which leads to...)
.458 win mag - my first big bore.
I totally understand. I’ve been taking my .450 out on night walks looking for pigs despite a scoped rifle being far better for use with a torch...
Well, still amazing! Glad you had a great trip :)
Yeah that’s the issue I was thinking - it would be great to do things the original, classic way, but it’s really kneecapping oneself, right?
Hmm, good questions that I haven’t really thought of..
I was just thinking of how people use the 375 H&H for a one gun Safari, was curious if the...
I’m sure I will, thanks for taking the time to find and post the link (and report) :)
Now if I recall reading correctly - this cartridge was regarded as a great “all-rounder” for Africa, before the 375 H&H took its...
Old post but @Royal27 and @K-man can you post links to the hunt reports here?
Would love to read them.
Did you get a croc? Or still to come? Or did I miss it?
Amazing hunt, you’re a lucky fellow!
I never said small bores below 375 are adequate? Well, except the 9.3’s.
Yeah I felt I shoulda lumped 8mm with 30 and less but decided to just...
Greetings from Queensland!
I believe it’s pretty much personal opinion, although some people seem to use it for chest beating.
The way I view things is like this:
Wow, the last 3 responses have all been from companies. That says a lot about the quality of the forum (in a good way!)
Keep it coming! Looking forward to the hunting part :)
Watched the video before reading his commentary. Was like why the hell is he going out to try and shoot a bear with cubs, wtf? Then read it and...
Would love to get a link to the story, please! :)
Wish our greedy politicians in Aus would cut off some of their ridiculous pensions..
Speaking of YouTube:
Thanks for the response, Matt :)
I’m well versed in the African cartridges. My personal favourite “original” is the 425 WR :)
The thing I don’t...
Heya and thanks everyone!
@Montana Rifle Company - I was going to use one of your PH actions for a custom build if I succeeded in getting into...
If I was to win the lottery I’d have a double in .700 built. But it won’t happen so I’ll remain a dreamer and live through others :)
Oldish thread I know. But just wanted to comment on this post above.
The .577 Tyrannosaur sounds cool to me - I’m a fossil nut though. However!...
Is there something tricky or special about doing this or are they just a standard rifle thread? Thinking it would be neat if you could make one as...
Looks like a blast and good shooting to me. Dunno what the issue is.
Cheers for the answer, @IvW . Appreciate it :)
Why’d the PH shoot also? That would always bug me if it wasn’t nescessary?
Would love a double some day..
Had a Zastava in .458 win. Loved that gun. Bought a 450 nitro that weighs 8lb. Love it. I can only imagine a m70 will be similar or...
Found one of the H&H’s I was thinking of.
@lwaters - what do you catch in Kansas? I’ve fished Oklahoma and got heaps of various panfish, small bass and one channel cat. Loved it all...
How does trajectory and recoil compare for a 375 H&H vs .416 Rem?
Cogswell and Harrison, and I believe even Holland and Holland, used aluminium for floorplates too at one point.
I want a .458 win mag, and if I get one, for me, it has to be a Winchester model 70. I like the cartridge and maker names to match :)
Great read, brilliant report. I look forward to hearing the end :)
Separate names with a comma.
