    Looking For A 500 N.E. Double Rifle

    I assume that the Merkel S2 that you mentioned Steve Barnett having in the OP is the one I see listed for $9750 and described as "as new". It has a listed weight of 11 lb 4 oz which is quite a bit heavier than Marius' -- I'm not sure why the difference. Also the LOP is 14 3/4 inches If I...

    Would you like a Cigar?

    I just bought a 10-pack of Cohiba Red Dot Corona's for $69.98 at CigarPage. I see them listed at $58.00 for a 5-pack other places. I feel like I'm in the midst of a feeding frenzy. :) The Drew Estate cigars have increased in price from $60 to $74.50 in just two days since I got mine. Any...

    The 1/4 million buck hunt

    Are we talking about a $250,000 hunt? Elephant, black rhino, white rhino, lion, Cape Buf, and leopard would eat up about that much. You could have one put together for you, but I doubt anyone has one on offer as such because there would be little market for it.

    When the billing email for Cigar Page came through it said "Brandshopper DBA as Cigar Page" I was curious, so I googled Brandshopper and came up with this: Brandshopper

    Shoulder not set back

    I think to determine if it is the shoulder being too far forward or the bullet being seated out too far, try rechambering. If the bullet was pushed back when you cammed the bolt closed then on this second time in then they should load more easily but with the too forward shoulder resistance...

    Is the Model 70 Safari Express a Magnum action?

    The pre-64 Model 70 came with only one action length that was used for all calibers. Since 1992, at least, there have been two, short and long.

    Would you like a Cigar?

    I don't know anything about the Archetype Axis 2 Mundi by Drew Estate or Cigar Page but at $59.99 for a box of 20 when they have an MSRP of $209.80 I had to give them a try. Is anyone familiar with this cigar?

    Leupold VX3 Riflescope, real world opinions

    Absolutely I was going to the lower models because they looked just as clear as the higher ones. Or at least plenty clear enough to see for the hunting I do.

    Leupold VX3 Riflescope, real world opinions

    My first Leupold was a VX3. Then I moved to VX2s. Then Vx1s. Then the Rifleman. My next will be a VX Freedom. Any and all of these scopes have good enough glass for the hunting I do. I didn't like the Rifleman only because you have to use a coin or screwdriver to turn the adjustment knobs.

    Best rifle for Namibia?

    I've gotten into slow moving round nose bullets. I'd go with the 275 grain bullet I see on MidwayUSA, if I still had my .35 Whelen. BTW, I can only get 2425 fps with the 250 grain bullet in my .338-06. That makes it the ballistic equivalent of the .318 Westley Richards, but then that had a...

    Best rifle for Namibia?

    Bob, I think I'd prefer something a little more than 250 grs. in a .35 caliber. What's available?

    Best rifle for Namibia?

    I would prefer a .338-06 with 250 grain bullets or 9.3 x 62 with 286 grain bullets over the .375.

    Experience with Nosler Accubonds

    Always got perfect mushrooms from them but they don't penetrate as well as I like on bone. In fact, I made a finishing shot into the neck of a gemsbok and the bullet was stopped without penetrating the bone at all. I've had much better results with the Barnes TSX and TTSX.

    Yeah, I got the .340" from a cartridge diagram but I just now measured a .30-06 round and it was .330".

    30-06 problem loading

    Something is wrong with your measuring. The neck diameter of an unfired case should be about .340". A .310" neck diameter would mean your case walls were only .001" thick.

    Wild Managed Lion Hunt As Well As Free Range Buffalo & Plains Game On 75,000 Acres Kalahari 2021/2022

    Thanks, I thought that's what you meant by the transfer but wanted to check. So, what I come up with, if you just want to shoot a male lion and stay the minimum 14 days is $4900 day fees + $15,000 + $990 = $20,890. That sounds good to me, although I haven't kept abreast of wild lion prices...

    WANTED: Pricing A Wild Managed Lion Hunt For 2022

    I stand corrected too, although the phrase is an oxymoron, I guess it is as good as any to clue in hunters as to what is being offered. The interesting thing to me is 3 or 4 years back I asked why no one was capturing wild lions and releasing them into a high fenced game ranch in order to...

    I've been dry firing off of sticks aiming out of my study window for about a year now, five shots in the morning and five shots in the afternoon, and I think it's helped. I shot 12 rounds of .416 Rem Mag at the range today and it's interesting (to me at least) that I never once felt any recoil...
