    500 A-Sqaure lighter bullets

    Good day all. I have been enjoying my 500 A-Sqaure lately shooting 600gr mono solids at 2300fps and 570 barnes tsx at 2250fps. This is brilliant on the big stuff ( elephant, buff, and hippo), but I would like for this rifle to also be used for following up lion and other lighter game. These...

    Hows this 7x64 load for plains game?

    Hi fellas, I'm starting to do my homework for a trip in 2023 or 2024. Over the years I've let all my rifles go except one, a musgrave czech mauser in 7x64 with a 1-6 meopta on it currently (czech on czech just seemed to make sense). This delivers me 0.5 moa consistently, launching 160-165gr...

    Looking For 375 Ruger Brass

    Well I’m exhausted with the shortages. I have a hunt coming up next month and am in search for some brass. Maybe 100 pieces would suffice. If you have a reasonable fair price on once fired I’d be interested. Many Thanks!!
