    Yep. The next trip will be focused on Vaal Rhebok and the Tiny Ten. The .340 Wby somehow feels a tad on the "too much of a good thing" side, if we spend 90% of the hunt after 50 lbs antelopes LOL

    But there will also be Sable, so the .340 Wby does come along.

    The jury is still out for the Nyala. I guess it will depend on which gun I carry if we bump into a good one... Given the choice I would prefer the .340, just to be on the safe side, because I could take the shot from any angle, but the .257 would do fine on a clear broadside presentation I believe.
