    Which is the best game meat?

    Mike I hear mountain lion is a sweeter meat? Never had bear so I don't have a reference

    Which is the best game meat?

    In Africa Zebra was our favorite. In the states Moose Wild sheep both Dalls and rocky mountain bighorn Elk. Not a huge fan of mule deer. I hear mountain lion is top notch. Just have to get one first and then I'll let you know.

    How Does Recoil Contribute to the Likelihood of a Torn Retina?

    I'm guessing this may be a job for Myth buster guys on TV. Place the sensors on Buster. Hook a 416 up to him see how he fares. Damn. You could stuff him in a funny car too. Lol....

    How Does Recoil Contribute to the Likelihood of a Torn Retina?

    Bill, I can speak directly to part of this. I'm 62 now but 3 years ago I actually had one of my retinas detach . My history was of retinal tears secondary to trauma over 40 years prior that was repaired with a laser. This time was quite different I required surgery and my chances were poor to...

    I've followed this thread for awhile. Its been tempting to jump in and give some first hand perspective. I'm in a unique position to now attempt to engage this subject. First of all what we absolutely know today about treatments, methodology and survivability could very well change in coming...

    .416 Rigby - Will this stock hold up?

    Sir. I have a RSM in 416 Rigby. Personally I wouldn't shoot one with a thumb hole. That pic appears to be a Weatherby rifle? I would rather keep my digits. Best of luck in your search.
