I always have wondered how the PH's and similar thst live there avoid trouble?
That's a management muley? Jeez I'd be happy with that as a trophy!
I specifically stated that this was not to be a debate thread because I know what I want and...well that's it.
Seeing as it keeps coming up and...
I don't think those types of countries are within my means otherwise I would certainly consider them.
During the british raj, this calibre would have been known as the 275 Rigby if this rings a bell? The late great Jim Corbett used it on some...
They no longer are imported into Australia, replaced with the new push feed line (557?). I think that fed some of the rumour around them being...
I'm moving away from taxidermy as it's becoming too expensive locally, I'm getting what will probably be one of my last done at the moment...
Yeah I saw the video, I asked them in the youtube comments and then on this forum who they hunted with but they never got back to me.
I apologise I should have mentioned that I'm after cape eland.
For what it's worth, I've always said if I could hunt one animal in...
Thank you for the replies,
I didn't expect to get as many private messages as I have. I'm just about to head off on a fishing trip for a few...
Firstly, please note that this is not designed to be a debate thread. I'm all for people doing what floats their boat, this is simply what...
My understanding is that it's $3,000 plus the trophy fees.
Those rifles were around $2k new in Australia prior to going out of production. Good deal.
Great pics, gosh leopards are beautiful.
I'll say, man I want to get in close to those things one day. What camera are you running? Great snap.
Apologies! Keen to hear how it pans out.
I studied to be a biologist, more focused on landscape ecology (not that I work directly in that field now). But for whatever it's worth it almost...
Do you ever hunt them under natural light e.g. full moon?
I've decided to no longer burden my family when I pass by leaving too many taxidermied heads for them to awkwardly hold then eventually dump....
Great buck, was that a diy hunt?
Did you see any muley bucks? Congrats to your wife
outback pig hunt
Is it though? 416's, 404J and similar seem to have been for elephants for a long time. It's not like blokes are out there professional ivory...
Very informative and some interesting customs. Thank you for sharing.
None of the pics are working for me mate.
Congrats on a great trip anyhow!
I'd love a 450-400 ne one day but having never shot anything bigger than a 9.3x62 (shoot that fine) I don't know how I'd handle it.
You really haven't explored the range of possibilities for this calibre.
On the contrary it's pretty much the opposite to that.
Metric measurements use decimals so you can always be very precise with temp. Temperature...
That's just my work horse rifle, sako A7 in 30-06. Mind you after the amount of that fine dust that works its way into every mecahanical nook and...
I know I'm late to the party on this thread but do you have any pics of the terrain you hunted?
Great trophy and great trip mate.
Some pics of a recent outback pig hunt. Beautiful part of the world.

I'm curious on how the hell you managed to get a free range buff hunt that cheap!
This banter reminds me of the time my mate from Montana visited here in Aus. I cooked mexican for tea one night and while I was cooking away he...
You might be surprised, as long as a person is capable of adding a zero onto something you can sort out metric measurements!
Isn't the US pretty much the last country in the world hanging on to Fahrenheit? Water freezes at zero and boils at 100, come on fellas!
Question for the locals on the forum.
I'm going to have a crack at Biltong, the only thing that seems inconsistent in recipes is that...
Where's the open sights!
Looks great mate.
My understanding was that Barnes is incredibly good at energy transfer.
What do you think of the Woodleigh Hydro's? Tossing up between 250gn ttsx...
Recent trip into Outback Australia
As a factory rifle that will do all you want you should look at a Sako Black Bear in 9.3x62. The kodiak is similar but has a laminate stock and...
I don't want to derail the thread, so maybe if this becomes a discussion it should be moved.
I don't think people exaggerate how fast a double...
Both mates had 12 gauge lever shotguns, they just didn't seem to be enough on the big boars. Don't get me wrong, they slowed them up after 5 or 6...
It's different for different calibres and different weights within the same calibre. I email the shit out of Barnes when I get a new rifle about...
If you have them bailed the size of the bullet doesn't matter too much, it's how you handle the rifle :D
Good to see some decent tuskers still about. Hopefully someone from the forum grabs this hunt, I want to read the write up!
