Welcome to AH 40inarow! Been through the exciting metropolis of Boerne several times.
Thank you for the welcome! You have been to Boerne several times, you are well traveled!
My confession is that on my safari to Africa, I used the .338 Win mag and my wife used a 7x57. She just liked our Ruger No. 1A in 7x57 because it is short and balances well for her. We shot 9 animals and only one twice, it was an insurance shot. Great cartridges.
I still endorse 6.5 cartridges. Easy and fun to shoot, but excellent performance.
Mark Sullivan would tell you that's because "450/400 is a woman's gun". Sorry, I was just re-reading one of his books and made me think of that. I guess I shouldn't disparage the guy. He goes into battle with the animal on the animal's own... sorry... I couldn't even finish that sentence. I've diverted this thread enough. Back to your regularly scheduled program.
He collects 6.5x55 Swedish mausers.
40inarow, I have several friends that live in Boerne, and have been there several times. My wife and I really enjoy the restaurant with all the plates. I met them while their children were competing at the National Pistol Matches at Camp Perry Ohio as part of the Texas Junior Pistol Team. Now one of those "kids" who recently graduated from Texas Tech with a Masters in Mechanical Engineering is working for GM in my neck of the woods. He has been shooting with us for a little over a year now. It truthfully is a small world.
