    Rigby Highland Stalker .275 vs 30-06

    30-06 is more practical... but so is buying a Model 70. If I were buying a Highland Stalker I’d get the 275. Maybe 9.3, maybe.

    Whoah Jerome, I'm so used to the old AH it'll take a bit of getting used to, but overall I think it looks great! Well done!

    For most hunting areas in Africa, its hard to beat quality 8X30s in a Rick Young harness.

    CZ 550 9.3x62, barrel mounted recoil lug, and B&C stock fit Qs

    Sorry Joe, only input I can offer is my 9.3X62 came from CZ wearing a B&C stock already. Those models don't have barrel lugs for some reason!

    Awesome experience. I can't wait for the next Zoom Safari with Bullet Safaris! Everyone interested in Leopard hunting who didn't attend really missed out.

    Leupold Warranty

    Arguably the best hunting riflescopes made. Great company as well. Especially considering Leupold makes a budget line (all Leupold scopes have the same strength of internals), I don't understand people who put substandard scopes on their rifles.

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

    Your favorite big bore and a scoped 375/9.3. Skip the light rifle - that’s the one that’ll be in your hands when you see that awesome dagga boy when you aren’t expecting him!

    Caliber 30-30 use in Africa???

    A good addition to any classic lever gun is a peep sight. Williams and Lyman both made no tap no drill options that can still be bought on ebay

    My New Knife : A True American Classic

    I generally prefer full flat grind or scandi grind knives. I generally prefer carbon steel knifes to stainless. I generally prefer a fixed knife to be 4.25-4.75" and a folding knife to be 3.25" or less. BUT I love the Buck 110. One of my buddies has one his grandfather gave him thats 60+...

    Shotgun to a Double rifle? Possible?

    I wouldn’t butcher an heirloom British 28. BUT if I could commission a set of barrels for it in something like 25-20 or something like that it would be pretty neat. If money were no object, of course. Better still might be to commission someone to make 28 gauge inserts in 25-20 or the like.

    Best beginner brand/reloading kit for big rifle cartridges?

    A Lee Factory Crimp die won’t hurt, especially for a hard kicking round like the 458 Lott. Some people get real emotional when crimping comes up, but a light crimp won’t hurt anything.

    Best beginner brand/reloading kit for big rifle cartridges?

    As far as presses go, I do most of my hand loading with a $40 Lee Hand press. You can get a Lee 50th anniversary kit for quite cheap. I like nicer Redding, RCBS, and Hornady dies. People will trash talk Lee equipment but nothing you hunt will notice the difference. I actually prefer my Lee...

    .470 Nitro Express Brass life?

    NO EXPERIENCE HERE, but I’d go with Hornady brass if I were USA based simply due to its continuous availability in the USA. Your brass life will vary with the difference between your die and chamber size playing a role, as mentioned above. I’d consider anealing. Look up the YouTube video...

    Which caliber to keep?

    If you wanna have two guns: the ‘06 and the 375. I really like the 9.3X62 and the .338WM as well.

    Win Model 70 XTR .338 Mag, Alaskan Statehood

    Slick gat! Love the recoil pad. I recomend a Leupold VX6 2-12X42 Firedot in easy-to-remove (not necessarily “QD”) rings.

    What’s your beater rifle?

    Stainless Ruger Scout 18.75” barrel with replacement Ruger polymer stock to save 12oz of weight. 5 round dbm. Aftermarket flush swivels from Grovtec with a CW style sling from Andy’s leather. Standard Velocity that Leupold VX3 2.5-8X36 is an excellent and underrated scope. I think I might...

    Off-hand shooting

    I personally am neutral on the importance of a sling from offhand. From sitting or prone that’s a different story. My favorite sling is the Andy’s Leather Rhodesian sling. You can set your loop size and away you go. Highly recommended.

    Off-hand shooting

    For off hand, try to get the elbow of your off side arm as close to directly beneath the receiver as possible. This will allow your skeleton to help your muscles the best.

    Captive Lions For Sale At Safari Club International

    It seems the CBL controversy could be cooled if a wildlife management industry standard could be adopted in regards to enclosure size and length of time since being fed by a human. I am far from any expert, but it seems like 50,000 acres and 1 year should be ethically acceptable to the vast...

    Decent scope for .22?

    Hogpatrol that looks nice! Especially for a .17HMR. Anything with a lower magnification range?

    Decent scope for .22?

    I also have an old Leupold VXI 2-7X33. I wish someone would make a sensible, compact, rimfire scope with adjustable parallax. 1” tube please, and 40mm objective is just too big for a rimfire, IMHO.

    Fenix LD30. The mode toggle is on the side so the main tail switch is simply on and off, with mode memory. Hat band clip for hands free. Runs off an 18650, which can be found USB rechargeable, or two CR123s. Small, compact, non-tactical. $80 though. I’ve found with lights you do kind of...

    Binocular suggestions

    sambarhunter, yes I’ve found specifically deer hunting I like larger objective, larger exit pupil binos. Deer seem to move the most at first and last light so at least a 5mm exit pupil is best. Especially in a deer stand I’ve come to prefer my 50mm Steiner Military Marines. I have both the...

    Binocular suggestions

    WAB, I have the 10X30 CLs. I looked through the EL 10X32s, and I didn’t notice a huge increase in quality. The 10X42 EL Ranges look amazing; I’ve looked through them but not in low light. If I lived in the mountains I’d prolly buy those EL Ranges.

    Welcome! What kind of DG hunting are you interested in?

    470 NE vs. 500 NE for Hippo

    Get the 416. And get that exact scope you mentioned, make sure to get the one with the Firedot. Doubles are cool . Get one and practice with it. And bring it over on a future hunt. For your first DG foray, I’d recomend that exact scope on a 375, or a 416 if you can shoot it accurately.

    Binocular suggestions

    I forgot to mention: try and go by a good store as the sun is going down (low light performance is part of the equation of what you’re paying $$$ for). Look through several models outside - everyone’s eyes are a little different, and yours might like Zeiss over Swarovski or vice versa. I’d...
  41. Jeffrey

    Binocular suggestions

    The most versatile power and objective combo is probaraby 8X42. Those ARE a compromise. 30mm binos are far lighter and handier. 50mm binos are best for low light. 10 power binos see further, but 8 power binos have a wider field of view and provide a “steadier image” by not magnifying shakes...

    Hunting boots for Northern Limpopo province South Africa

    Courteney. Expensive but worth it. You’ll have a cool momento of your hunt that will last many years. You can even get them cheaper in RSA and they don’t really require much break in. That said, the folks at African Sporting Creations are nice to deal with.
