    TANZANIA: Tz Safari Disagreement

    What sort of cold meat salad has no meat? Sorry Just Gina but that completes the meal. Unless salad is on the side of the main meal that would be good like steak, chicken , lasagne or BBQ meat. (Brain) No issues with my outfitter on meals or food on my only safari. I'm pretty sure the...

    Hammer Bullets

    In my next post I see I wrote that I mainly shoot pests as I have often said here. In Australia all of our huntable species are introduced and generally regarded a pest to be controlled. We still have trophy hunters and meat hunters but they are still introduced species that so are often the...

    What do you all think this bear?

    All I see is a nice rug, then Y'all start talking about eating it again. I've asked about this but still never looked at them as an eating species. Congratulations on taking down this Fatty Pumba.

    Fixed Magazine vs Detachable Magazine

    @DG870 you have a solution so all is well. I was gonna dd if you buy a Tikka you gonna get a removable mag but spares are available and they seem to work ok so long as you have it in the rifle and a spare is light enough to carry if required. That's my 2 bobs worth for anyone considering a...

    Hankering for an R8

    Nice assortment of chambering should cover the bases with a hot 7mm for hunting and a.458lott for stopping I guess the .375H&H is just because it's a classic cartridge that sits between and is versatile.

    Hankering for an R8

    That should say 6.5cm because some 6.5 shooters might want to hide their identity. I'm likely to shell out for a Blaser before buying a 6.5cm on principal because I've bagged it too much.

    Old vs new scopes

    Don't sell them if they make you happy be happy. My Swarovski is my only Swarovski is an old one but it suits the rifle. I've sold off a lot as I've outgrown it or updated but it's so I can update. Each to their own but I'm coming to terms with what I want and need is not valued by my kids so...

    Am I the only weirdo?

    No, it gives you pleasure and you have this online support group so you are dealing with this rationally. I should be doing something but I'm often distracted here. I seem to a penchant for guns but also have accumulated a number of butchers knives and sharpening gear because I have been trying...

    Black versus blue wildebeest rug

    Probably has to come down to personal preference being your trophy. The Giraffe thing is interesting as people seem to be very sensitive about them. Personally I'm OK with taking them but my daughter asked me not to shoot a Giraffe when I announced my intentions of going on a safari. It wasn't...

    Cabanossi- Crown National- Dry Wors- African meat products

    Update. I made up some Cabana today using pork and beef because that was the plan. Taking in what @Philip Glass said I also made some on straight Beef with the same seasoning to dry it with my Biltong. I also had a small length of the same that I put it to hot smoke with the others. Big...

    Looking For 243 For Kid's Hunting Rifle

    Hey Russ, all I'm hearing is there are more Deer there, hmm. No minimum calibre requirements for Fallow that I'm aware of but from memory NSW DPI suggest .243 as a minimum for pest management etc as a guide to government agencies etc for their pest plans. @rdog , Bob may well blow a boiler...

    Looking For 243 For Kid's Hunting Rifle

    I think the .243 is a great choice too and is fairly popular in Australia with many. The 6.5cm is widely available now and probably taking a market share where the .243 was filling the need.

    Looking For 243 For Kid's Hunting Rifle

    Hankering for an R8

    I don't think I've read about anyone selling their Blaser because they don't like it The converts are sold on them and seem suitably impressed. I see the value or more so the benefit to those who travel with multiple barrels.

    Blaser ideal Africa 2 barrel set

    I like the choices here as I was wondering if 7mmrem mag would come up as it has the same bolt face. I'm glad @BeeMaa chimed in with his experience. Wondering where Uncle Joe is as he is another authority In the Blaser and avid R8 user.

    CPAP Backup Batteries

    Should be quiet as answered above. I have the Dream station . It's bulky for travel but I can run it on a 12 volt lighter/accessory socket with an $80 lead. That works for me with a deep cycle battery in my vehicle so I can camp or connect to the caravan. Following thread as I may need a...

    Water Buffalo Hunting On A Budget

    The First Landrover

    @Kevin Peacocke how far is Harare from here? I would pick up a Pithy and take a spin with you. Bob can sit up the back since he weighs 250 pounds. I don't delve too far into mechanical stuff but I will if I need too. Even Queen Elizabeth used to service them and there is probably no other car...

    Sorry to hear this. I did not know him but knew he was active member I remember reading something about his other interests being cars and Harley's I thought. Condolences to his family and friends. Barely older than me so yes much to young but sounds like he had a life well lived.

    Best 2x10/2x12ish scope for the money?

    Best 2x10/2x12ish scope for the money?

    Sounds like Leupold 2-10 is going to get in the budget side but maybe get not be the best low light glass. If you are going to travel to hunt try find another $1000 and get into a good scope that fits your requirements. You might be chasing better glass as you get older so maybe it's better to...

    Down loading the 458WM to 45-70??

    As above the H4895 which is a AR2206H equivalent can be downloaded significantly. ADI Australia who make advise it can be loaded as low as 60% of max load. As @CJW found some issues look into it further but it's potentially an option once you find a reliable load. Alternatively how high can you...

    Old vs new scopes

    Agreed, But the last sentence of point 5 says a 56mm objective would look stupid with a 25mm tube. The Kahles 8x56 was very popular in Australia for spotlighting. The ones I've seen and the one I own are 25mm tubes. Nothing stupid about it and it is excellent on low light. Schmidt and Bender...

    Variety or familiarity?

    I think if what you have suits your needs then it doesn't matter. You like what you like and you don't need to run the same brand or model to match them. On the other hand I have 6 Tikka centrefires. Different calibres and configurations but with some overlap. But there is also Howa, Remington...
