    Hello Hunters

    Falco, welcome to the AH forum! I’m looking forward to some reports and pictures of hunting in Poland! You should make a plan to hunt Africa because you’ve got the right calibers for it.

    Best Caliber for Tiny 10?

    I like IVW’s drilling suggestion unless you’re focussed on larger game. I have a 12x12x30-06 drilling I have wanted to take to Africa for night critters. I’ve got some FMJ loads from 147 down to 110 (1,900-2,000 fps) I have used on bobcats, turkeys and grouse that don’t seem to tear things up...

    Lkhntr, question, does the barrel come with the magazine insert! Just curious. 1:10 standard twist? Sounds like a good deal IMO. Thanks

    Best Caliber for Tiny 10?

    “Enraged possum”! Pretty scary! Trying to get a possum out of a persimmon tree actually can be scary from my experience! Needle like teeth.

    Best Caliber for Tiny 10?

    The smallest Africa game I have taken were: duiker-375 H&H 300 solid at 20 yards, ran another 20-30 and down caracal-375 H&H 250 Barnes TTSX (all I had) facing me at 30 yards so I took a low belly shot, DRT, bullet is still going some where, but little damage (I’ll take luck any day to skill!) 3...

    What have you been doing since you can’t go on Safari?

    Hmmm...I’m still dreaming of my granddaughter‘s and my first Africa hunt together. Should have flown out Wednesday the 22nd. Woke up Thursday to an inch of water in my man cave! The main waterline buried below the basement broke! I managed to get the city to shut off our main from the street...

    Blaser R8 Configurations

    I tend to only neck size, or bump size my cases for any particular gun except DG since my rifles are conventional caming bolts. Just wondering how this works on a Blaser R8 since it doesn’t cam?

    Bullet for Cape Buffalo

    In my vast experience (1 buffalo) the first shot, 300 TSX, was through the top of the heart and bottom of the lungs. It didn’t die. PH fired a 458 Lott, but it didn’t stop. It spun and started moving away. My second 300 TSX was into the root of the tail. It stopped and went down but was only...

    Some things can never be bettered?

    Any one remember “Kilroy was here”? He is engraved in stone in the National War Memorial in Washington, DC, - back in a small alcove where very few people have seen it. For the WWII generation, this will bring back memories. For you younger folks, it's a bit of trivia that is a part of our...

    German Shorthaired Pointer Dog

    My old GSP. We’ve had some grand adventures from Havre, MT to Gizmo’s in Texas and most upland birds between. He has been my best hunting bud going on 15 years! Sadly arthritis has pretty well ended our serious hunts, but if he makes it to next season, he will be in the field with me one more time.

    Hello from the UK

    Bokmeister, welcome to the AH forum! I’m looking forward to a report on your Cape buffalo hunt! It’s very exciting! That 416 Rigby should be a hammer with the right bullets!

    Colorado Get Together

    Another thought is the Whittington Center near Raton, NM. A very nice place to shoot! RV, tent, group cabin, etc. Just thinking ahead.

    Colorado Get Together

    Come on up Tarbe! Maybe we should find a cool place to camp? Possibly near Salida where the DOW has a free shooting range? Or off the Colorado River near Hot Sulphur Springs where they also have a range?

    Hello from the UK

    NewForester, welcome to the AH forum! I own a couple of suppressors (moderators), but I only take a 375 H& H to Africa. Here in the US it is almost impossible to get suppressors for that large a caliber (at least that I can afford)! Dr Robertson’s books are excellent! As a veterinarian, he has...

    Making A Terminally Ill Client's Final Dream Come True

    This may be my favorite story you have told! Thanks for showing such respect for one of our veterans! It seems like these days (Since Vietnam) they get so little appreciation for what they go through protecting us and keeping us our liberties.
