I would never use a 30/06 Bluey
You know your a real man when you cant decide wether to take the 416 Rigby for plains game because you think its maginal.
I would say that if you can take advatage of a two inch differance in trajectory go light if not 270 tsx. My 375H&H shoots them well and I have...
If you are really set on a one gun safari then look into Rhino bullets for DG very heavy for caliber bullets.
The 375 H&H is an excellent choice for a one gun Safari. I suggest a little more bullet wieght for big game .
I always bring two rifles with me to hunt Elk in the high country of Colorado. The qwestion is do I bring two 300 Win mags or two 7MM Rem...
A rifle that shoots differant loads well is a joy to own. How is your son taking the recoil? 2700fps is a respectable velocity for 308.
The best thing about a 577 is that your never undergunned. the 470 was a logical choice arent you glad to get that out of your system?
Do they make a .308 solid if so you really could do some Guinea fowl in even Franklins would fear you.
I can drink them pretty but not thin!
Even though the ES isnt perfect .75 and 2855 aint bad for 300 Win Mag.
Already have a 375 whelen Imp how does that compare to th 9.3x62?
OK out of the corner. Anyone know what to do with 8, 30-06's?
Not even that there like fat chicks you dont want anyone to see you with one!
I just took inventory and have managed to come up with eight of the danmed things. I am truly ashamed of myself!
CZ offers a rifle in 450 rigby thats what I recomend.
HOLY SHIT! This took off!
I have decided to start shooting all my game animals with 22lr! Ive just been killing them to easily with the larger calibers.
Not anywhere would I take such an expensive hard kicking rifle! I Shoot everything with a cricket in 17 HMR.
+1 what mike said I use USAA to insure my high end rifles costs a few dollars a month well worth the piece of mind.
What was your most exciting or challenging stalk?
This year is special to me its my 12yo sons first hunt I got him a deer tag and an elk tag.
Truly I belive the 06 is a great round given the right situation. I am also amazed people still get offended at such brazen statements when its...
There are a number of newer cartridges that better the ballistics and terminal performance of the ancient 30-06!
My wife is much younger than me she wants to see the volcanos on the big island, and learn to surf in wikiki beach so its at least a 2 island...

Well at least there isnt anyone here?
Have so many rifles cant decide which one to bring on my may 2013 hunt for large Kudu. Should i use a classic like 7x57 or go big with my 375 H&H....
You didnt waste your time 35 bore. Just asking a qwestion about this Caliber.:confused:
Every year I go hunting in the Colorado high country. I pack in on horses and set up camp 10 or 15 miles into a wilderness area. Elk hunting is...

Docman it means hes found an area with the potential to produce 60 inch Kudu. This area produces above average Kudu for whatever reason its not a...
Your killin me Sest!
Let us know how it goes.

At those competitions arent the targets 30 inches or more at 600 yards? Not the same as a 8x12 inch vital triangle target. My 12yo son pulls a...
35bore I also toy with archery taditional is fun. Traditional eqipment allows you to just shoot and not be a catapult mechanic.
Well the reality is that the 06 and 308 the ballistic equal of the 06 up to 165 gr bullet wieght are being replaced by the 300win mag for sniping...
They asked for it sest!
06 well thats a great round if you cant shoot past 300 meters. I do, have, and have a room full of trophys killed well beyond the 06's limited range.
AHH Yet another proprietary cartridge. Beter hope you dont get seperated from your ammo in transit.
What is a reasonable trophy fee for a 60 in Kudu?
Find the ammo that shoots well. Practice practice and practice.
Without stating the importance of caliber choice 30-06!
He shot it out of the front seat of a bakie. guess the PH couldnt get a shot off.
