Was hoping to see a 300 HH!
Action/Chamber not big enough for a .300 HH. Wished for it myself for two years before I found why it can't happen.

I think the round is too long for that action. Yes that would have been nice, or .318 WR. There is always next year?
I would be willing to send my money in advance for a 318 WR!

Me too. How cool that would be!!
I fell in love with a WR takedown at DSC that was chambered as such. I shot a wonderful waterbuck with it a couple nights later in my dreams and it was flawless perfection. One day....

Just went on Lipseys website they have a 280 AI Hawkeye African listed so looks like that’s what it will be for 2020. Maybe next year they will make the 318 hopefully,

Anybody hear anything about a Ruger African release for 2020? My sales rep at Lipsey’s said he knows nothing for this coming year. A .318 WR, .300 HH, or even 8x57 would be great choices in my opinion...

How bout a 425 Wesley Richards or a 404 Jeffery, now that would be cool
Cheers mate Bob

Or a .404 Ruger. .416 Ruger necked up it .423”
How about 458RUGER...who wouldn't want that?
And has a little better selection of bullets in 458 caliber over the 423 caliber.
Not sure if the case will allow enough space to give a shoulder for proper headspacing.
May have to blow out the case to do that and still make it fit in 30-06 action.

Probably a lost cause anyway.
The 450RIGBY is already doing what they would want to do in a rimless/un-belted cartridge.
Question is, could they get the same (or better velocities) using the same bullets in a shorter case.
Not likely.
If they did, it would probably look like a bigger version of the 25WSSM cartridge...AKA feeding issues.

I've already talked myself out of it...
Back to the possibility of a 404RUGER.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

On the vx6 2-12 what does the zl2 stand for?

Thanks, Oliver

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
