    Qatar no longer flying to Namibia until 2021

    The Ethiopian website says only laptops and medicines. No handbags or carry-on. But i also heard business class travelers could take carry-on. I usually carry a day pack with books, magazines, medicines and was told to only carry items that can fit in my pockets. I'm going to try might have...

    Qatar no longer flying to Namibia until 2021

    I'm scheduled to fly to Namibia in November on Ethiopian Airlines via Dulles as well. I asked the same question about the time in Addis Ababa and was told by a couple of guys who just returned to make sure you have copies of your firearms paperwork in your gun case. Supposedly they have you...

    Is any kind of hearing protection used on safari?

    Without protection the ringing in my ears increases to the point of being uncomfortable even after 1 shot. I wear walker game ear plugs and i can also hear the PH when he's talking to me.

    416 Remington reload info

    You might look at IMR4064 as I'm getting just under 2,400 fps and good accuracy with both 400 gr. A-Frames and North Fork SS with my model 70. I've been able to get close point of impact using Trophy Bonded Sledgehammer solids as well. Best of luck

    Thoughts: A rifle battery for a 28 day Safari hunt...

    I'd take my Dakota Traveler and 235 Barnes TSX and 300 gr Swift A-Frames for the 375 H&H barrel and 400 gr North Fork and some solids for the 400H&H and for me i believe my basis would be covered.

    Which .375 Rifle?

    I own 7 Model 70's, which 2 are 375 H&H and 1 416 rem. You can't go wrong with the model 70 Winchester, They shoot great right out of the box. Buy one and never look back.

    .45 ACP recommendations

    My everyday carry is a Springfield XPS 3.3 with 185 gr Hornady FTX. Recoil is very manageable, accuracy is excellent for close range. Just my two cents worth.

    Winchester M70 .375H&H optics/mounts

    One has Tally QD and the other has Warne QD both have Zies 1x6 scopes. One can never have too many 375 H&H's.

    I have the same questions as Bruce (gillettehunter) asked above. My wife says only if she gets to go and we would want to make the most of the trip and spend extra days to make it an adventure. Thanks Mike

    A very naive question about Winchester Model 70 Safari Express .375 H&H

    I hope you find the M70 in 416. I love mine, taken Impala to Cape Buffalo with it. You'll love it! It's a toss up between the 375 H&H and 416 which is my favorite. Good luck.

    A very naive question about Winchester Model 70 Safari Express .375 H&H

    Mine has been on 2 of my plains game safaris. Never a doubt about the decision to take on a hunt. Buy and practice and you will never regret your purchase. Great cartridge in a great rifle.

    .416 Remington vs .458 Lott

    Great thoughts and conversation. I have both the 375 H&H and 416 Rem Mag in Winchester Model 70. Took the 416 last year and shot a buffalo, Impala, Nyala and Sable with 400 grain Trophy Bonded Federal ammunition. For this hunt the 416 Winchester was absolutely outstanding. You can go wrong...

    What do guys consider the ideal weight for a .416?

    My 416 Rem Mag Winchester model 70 with 4x Leupold compact scope weighs in around 11 pounds. Recoil is very manageable. Hand loaded 350 gr speer to practice and used 400 gr Swift A-Frames on Buffalo and Sable. Shoot nearly 300 rounds practicing and the more I shot the more I loved the rifle...
