Chris took me a while to figure out the emojis but I think I got it.
Your think I'm one eyed.
Love stirring the pot
But I can't figure out why your hiding under the chair unless you don't like admitting you use a 243.
Last one you better get our of here before your mates find out you use a 243
Haha haha

Bob, that was Ragman emoji sentence
I dont have a lot of experience with the .243, i do like the little .243 rifle i bought the wife.
I really like my .7mm-08 ithas performed well on pigs as far as quick kills and dropping them quickly. The little Tikka CTR is nicely balanced l and good from the car and ok to carry if i dont have anything else with me.

RSA, Botswana, CAR, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Kenya way back when, and a few others that I can't remember.
I don't know what difference it would make, the 7-08 or the 308, and a magnatude of others..since they all seem to kill well if you do your part, but sorry to rain on your parades guys..

You are right, many like the .270. In real world performance with suitable projectile and shot placement they all do it.
It’s just a bit of fun as a shooter to consider the options and see what works.
I have a thing for 7mm-08 and have used the .308 more having had it previously.
I have a few rifles and half the fun is working out the rifle, scope, load and being able to have choice and maybe a couple of rifles set. Up for different purposes.

I had a Savage 7-08 that was an awesome gun. Accurate and reduced recoil. I could drive tacks with it with Barnes 120 gr. ammo. Sometimes regret I ever got rid of it. A great gun for Whitetail deer. Very good caliber for a youth hunter, which could evolve into a lifetime gun !

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
