What leverguns can be used for the shorter cased cartridges
I usually conceal carry my snub 44mag in the front pocket unless Im wearing a jacking then its in my jacket pocket I use a baby browning 25acp as...
Has anyone done a comparison between these and CEB or NF solids?
It doesn't appear to have damascus steel barrels and the make is francaise d'armes et cycles de st.etienne
I am looking at a 2.75" 577 double it has hammers is this capable of using smokeless powder? Sorry if this is a simple question but I have no...
I know it wouldn't be much use in Africa but still really cool.
Im of the belief that its better to have something and not need it than need it and not have it. I am also a fan of bigger guns so take what I am...
I know what you mean but I think I'd prefer something larger than a 22lr if being charged by an elephant.
matt85 Thanks for the correct info. To the OP I believe you would be better served with a 458Lott or a 460WBY if you are looking for more velocity...
I read somewhere that generally you gain or loose around 150FPS for each inch for these big bores. If this is wrong someone please correct me.
I know its a long shot but I would like some African Grand Slam solids formerly made by Speer.
I will take some logic from the 45-70 in africa thread and say sure the 223 will work but there are many better options available.
Very well done
This bullet looks impressive but I wished they made there bigger bullets to full size.
My bad forgot the gibbs was a bottle neck :E Embarrassed:
Cut out little pieces of card stock paper like from a 12 pack to the right size or if you feel a bit lazy you can just crumble up some paper and...
So we have all heard the kenetic energy, Taylor KO, and momentum arguements as to what accurately measures power but I came across a new formula...
I can shoot 700gr pills out of my S&W at aroung 1300fps always fun :D Beers:
They obviously dont know the time and money put into these dogs.
Are those mercury recoil reducer's in the stock.
I have a six shooter 45-70 and I love it. It is super fun to shoot IMO. I have never shot a BFR but I do believe it is lighter than mine so I...
Just a question of curiosity but would it be much different to those who see this as wrong to do the same hunt as the video but instead of a truck...
I find it funny people think that because they believe it is unethical it has to be. I was raise to believe drinking alcohol was unethical. Does...
Very nice rifle.
Matt have you shot it at 2400fps yet? If so was it manegable?
Yeah that's the one.
There's a 585 nyati on gunbroker for all you southpaws out there.
You could try using the both eyes open style as well ;)
Couldn't you practice using the opposite shoulder?
This hunt would take place in 2016 also any advice on hunting hippos on land would be appreciated.
I've never been buff hunting but is it normal for them to take that many shots or was it bad shot placement or because it was a 375?
Just say screw it and get a 505 Gibbs
Why can't you bring 16ga ammo with you.
No problem kai and I don't want to do a night hunt crop raid hunt just meet a large bill on land early in the morning or evening that's reasonably...
Spike.t would that be for farm hippo or wild?
Is that just the trophy fee?
Is Mozambique the only country that doesn't allow you to export.
How much does a hippo hunt cost and does it cost more to do it on land?
Does anyone know how hard it is to convert these to other calibers I know I will need to cut and weld the mag box so it will fit the cartridges....
Thanks for the video very cool
Mine will have a laminated stock so I would assume it will be finished but I am torn as to what kind of finish I should have done for the rest of...
Matt did you get any pics and I am very excited for mine to get finished :)
The video is by that same guy but he does a comparison between a 458wm bfr and a 458wm rugar #1 and the chrono said it was over 1600fps in the bfr.
Didn't mean rainbow as far as tragectory more like makes everyone happy.
The question is why the hate for the 45-70 because there are better options but love for the 375 when there's almost as many better options
I got a dumb question the 45-70 has obviously taken the big 5 and yes there are better choices of calibers but the same comment could be made...
I will say I don't care for the way the BFR looks stock but I am fasinated by the posibilities of the platform.
Actually the 458WM BFR got a 500gr slug over 1600FPS so I would say that is more than your 454 comparison. And I would argue that if the .577NE...
I too would love a .577 NE double with ejectors or maybe even a double bolt rifle if we arent caring about expenses.
I have seen this revolver before and it is very neat but the converted BFR I mentioned above weights less than 5lbs so it is more practical in my...
