    My Take on Dangerous Game Scopes

    Nice video Phil, even nicer trophy room. I agree with you 100% on using a high-power scope on a 375 H&H. It makes no sense to me whatsoever to limit the capabilities of the 375 H&H by using a low power scope.

    Eland Cartridges for recoil sensitive shooter?

    My son has been shooting a 6.5 x 55 Swede since he was 9 years old, he's now 13 and is 5’-5” and 130 lbs and can shoot a 30-06 without issue but he still prefers the Old Swede. This change didn't happen overnight we started slowly by moving up to a 270, then to a 308 and finally the 30-06. Every...

    Help need from my UK brothers and sisters

    In March of 2024 my wife and her research team are heading to Edinburgh for a 4-day conference. Normally these conferences take place in some US city that I have no interest in visiting, but a trip to Scotland is a different matter entirely. We plan on extending our trip for a few days so we can...

    One caliber away from contentment... who else?

    Scrap that 243 idea and buy a 7mm-08 or 7x57, you'll be much happier.

    Remington 760

    I have no problem using a 760 in 30-06 or 35 whelen as my Bushveld Plains Game rifle. Fast handleing, and accurate is the same all over the world, if its fast and accurate in the US, its fast and accurate in Africa.

    On my first safari, I took a Duluth Fire Hose Work coat and never used it once. On my second safari, I took a Cabelas Micro Berber pullover with Windstopper, which I wore the morning I shot my Sable. Unless you plan on hunting from a blind you won't need a warm outer layer on a daily basis. If...

    Congrats on booking your first Safari. Don't worry about hunt boots, just use hiking shoes. Limpopo is not a mountainous area, so you don’t the ankle support.

    Help me figure out a rifle

    If your a reloader the 7x57 is a great choice, if not look at the 7mm-08. In the USA the factory loads for the 7x57 are cup & core bullets, the 7mm-08 is factory loaded with everything under the sun (Cup & core, bonded bullets from Nosler, Swift, TBT, it come in Nosler Partition and Mono metals...

    Why was the bring back Von Gruff thread deleted?

    I am deeply saddened by this situation; I love AH and I love Gary’s knifes. I believe I own the very first knife Gary made for an AH member, it was a gift from my father, I will miss Gary on this forum.

    1 MOA Hoax

    The only way to test a rifles accuracy is to remove the shooter from the equation, every time you add the shooter to the equation you add variation. IMHO group size is not as important to hunters as the first shot. Once your rifle and scope are zeroed to the same spot the only shot that matters...

    Hunting distances- how far is too far?

    All field positions are not created equal, some are unsupported (Off-hand, kneeling, prone), some are supported (Shooting Sticks, Tree branches, rocks, backpacks), and some are stabilized (Front Bipod and rear sandbag from the prone position) and they all provide the shooter with different...

    Most Misjudged Plains Game Species?

    Here is my advice on judging African PG. If you are assigned a PH with 10+ years of experience as a PH, trust his or her judgment and you won’t be sorry. If you have an inexperienced PH, tell him or her its Gold medal or nothing, that way all of your animals will be high bronze or better. I'm...

    Ruger Guide Gun thoughts and reviews

    I love the 35 Whelen it's my go-to caliber for everything I hunt, my second favorite caliber is the 30-06 with 180-grain bullets. The only issue with the 35 Whelen is the availability of factory ammo. Until your life settles down I would stick with the 06. Good luck with your hunting and thank...

    A Proper Plains Game Rifle

    Nice rifle, I'm a fan of 180-grain bullets for the 30-06 but use what shoots best in your rifle. I'm a huge fan of the 35 Whelen and love the idea of the 400 Whelen, just make sure your brass is head stamped for the 400 and not for the 30-06 or the 35 Whelen. The SAP could give you trouble if...

    Mercury recoil reducers, do they work?

    I have one in my 416 Rigby Ruger #1 and it works great. IMO adding the mercury recoil reducer helped the balance point of the rifle. Full disclosure, I got the gun from @tarbe with the mercury recoil reducer already installed. My #1 with the installed recoil reducer weighs a Trim 11-1/2 pounds...

    SOUTH AFRICA: The Adventure Begins!

    A 35 Whelen with a 225 TSX at 2750 FPS. The only shot he gave me was a frontal chest shot at 220 yards, I placed the bullet right where my PH asked me to and he collapsed in his tracks, like an anchor dropping in water.

    What single caliber would you reccomend from each of the following cartridge families to a new shooter?

    I have shot the 375 H&H, 375 Ruger, 404 Jefferies, 416 Ruger, 416 Rigby, 458 WM, and 470 NE. So, to answer your question I'd pick the 375 H&H 404 J Stop there, as a client you'll never need anything larger for DG.

    SOUTH AFRICA: The Adventure Begins!

    Great Sable, I agree with you my Sable is my most prized trophy. I stalked my Sable foe 22K over two days before he offered me a shot, it was by far the best hunt of my life.

    Where do you draw that magical line between Hunter and PH cartridges?

    Speaking for myself the largest caliber I would hunt DG with is a 470NE but I would prefer to use a 416 or a 404. We all know that firearms don’t recoil in the field only on the range, but it’s on the range where you gain confidence and proficiency with your firearm. I can shoot 20 rounds of a...

    Rifle for Plains game

    A scoped No. 1 in 30-06 has been my favorite hunting rifle for decades, and has been on both of my safaris. My No. 1 loves any 180 grain bullet I have ever used in it but is not as accurate with 165s. I would have no concerns using it for Eland but I would prefer my beloved 35 Whelen.

    Want to buy Safari Binos

    Hunters bring two types of optics to Africa, binos and rifle scopes I would recommend spending a little less on your binos and a little more on your rifle scope. The most important binos on your safari belong to your PH, not you. Most of us can’t judge African game so the need for a highly...
