you raise a good point.
I have often wondered why sticks are so prolific in Africa.
when hunting on your own, they are just...
just be careful what bullets you use.
some are neant for 35 rem etc, and while good on smaller deer for lung shots, tend to be fragile at 358...
so brno made a bad mistake.
no magazine should have a projection like that.
if it could set off a 458, it could also set off a 375.
before it is too late, consider a rechamber to 280 rem.
do anything a 7x57 will do and more, and the action should take it.
that 458 win question has been addressed, and it turned out to be a projection in the magazine hitting a primer.
possibly not made by brno...
I tried a redfield with stadia wires, and a leupold duplex method, and measured many gout shot.
the goats were all different measurements, and...
why not take the 30/06 with 180 swift and the 375 with 300 swift?
when I load my 9.3x64 to 9.3x62 levels it is clearly more shootable than when I load it flat out.
when I load it flat out, it has proven equal to...
you can dry fire in your house anytime.
and this is the best of all, because you can do follow through the best.
there is a famous quote about building a house on sand.
in essence, the house will fall down due to not having a foundation.
shooting comes under...
it was like all military rifles, designed to wound people.
wounded people take up more resources.
you make a good point and I should have made my point with more clarity.
I meant full auto.
then there is some possibility a good strike...
further to the above post, I would like to add this.
everyone from john taylor to david tubb to tony boyer recommend and practise dry firing...
don't ask me why that curved buttplate gives me the willy whoops in a recoiling rifle.
at the risk of sounding repetitive, I will repeat myself.
the human psyche will naturally try to be protective when subjected to violence.
think fulfils the job description.
one is for wankers.
one is for doers.
the whelen is considered by some to be a short range cartridge, and while it is not a 7mm stw it has a longer point blank range than some would...
any hair on any animal seems to be very tough on sharpness of knives.
skinning donkeys also needs a few touch-ups of the blade during the job.
zero it at 100.
the amount high it is at 50 will not matter.
the amount low it is at 150 will not matter much either.
take your 458 and be happy.
the gun and the case are just delivery systems for the bullet.
you don't hear too much bad about the 450 x 3 1/4...
if you go yo Africa with a 405 you will need backup.
guys have tried it here in oz on buffalo, with consistently bad results.
to a man, the ones I...
before goint to a h&h case, try feed from the mag first.
the wby might have required feed rails to be opened up for the almost parallel case, and...
congratulations on the new toy.
to the best of my knowledge, the 405 only ever used a 300 gn bullet.
you might test the twist on your rifle,...
what he said.
actually ceh and I know what it is, but we are not saying so as not to ruin it all for everyone else.
I have often thought of a 416 cartridge suited to the Winchester highwall original action.
it would need a rim and a lesser diameter due to the...
if you want to use a 30/06 length mag for a 416, there is definitely a place for the 416 taylor.
any 7 rem mag, 300 win mag, etc only needs a new...
the 416 taylor has a shoulder.
the 458 lott does not.
thus the taylor resembles a short 416 rem and the lott resembles a long 458 win.
while you could do it, it is just more complicated, harder, and more expensive.
also, sooner or later you would need to size the lower case,...
without checking, the 416 ruger is fatter than h&h diameter, so the taylor die would be less than ideal.
if you want a taylor+, surely the 416 rem...
you are a hard man.
to fit a std boltface?
as long as it does not come from the Khyber pass firearms industry.
anyway, I am on tenderhooks.
might have to take Valium.
while lacking a bit of finesse, to my taste the newer straightest classic 550 stocks are a better design than any brno ever made.
as we eat our livers wondering, could hoss's secret present have a metric designation?
either that or could it come from a slovac country once...
thank god we have the same issue.
a problem shared is a problem halved.
it all pales into insignificance compared to the mystery present.
nothing else matters any more.
smoke is starting to pour out of my ears and my...
in the fullness of time.
everything comes to he who waits.
patience is a virtue.
and other such wise sayings.
or an original colt single action in 45 long colt.
or even a walker dragoon.
or a Thompson contender in 458 win mag.
a win m70 in 416 rem mag?
there are not too many STWs here in oz either.
I used to use a 7rem mag for a general purpose rifle, as it has about the recoil of a 30/06,...
1000 deer is a lot of deer.
actually I am thinking of making my stw into a 338/8mm rem mag, ballistically equal to a 340 wby..
your description of bullet travel in the game suggests very good shooting.
northwest & von gruff,
thanks for the feedback.
good to know local products are useful.
I have a hand lapped 13" twist one in 0.408" groove...
yes hoss that needs nailing down.
I would not shoot 458s in a long mag like that just in case for obvious reasons, but I would be looking...
how do you find the tse barrel?
at first glance that eldx seems to be less of a bullet performer than the other 3, but then you have to realize what the 28 nosler would do to it...
how do you define "effective range."?
one way might be to define a point blank range whereby the bullet rises and falls no more than +/- 3" from...
