any opinions on this as a choice for Africa PG? Suitability and ammo availability. I’ve been impressed with the results on pigs and I had long thought and convinced myself it would be a great allrounder for Australia. They keep telling me Africa is not as expensive as one might think. No it’s not depending on what your priorities are. I’m fascinated by Dangerous game but this site has shown me a few options for cull hunts on Plains game and I could maybe add a trophy Warthog, that hunt would come in under the trophy fee of most DG I think and the photos, the safari experience and the hunting appeals more than amassing numerous trophy’s . I have various rifles and options but I am trying to rationalise what I have and need so that I can do more hunting and use what I have. The .270 is renowned but I’ve never owned one. I have a .300 wm M77 but don’t like the Ramline stock. I’m seriously considering using mainly Tikka rifles for any future purchase of new rifles due to the options to change stocks etc around being one action length. The exceptions being something like a DG or purpose built rifle I’ve read the 7mm-08 and 7x57 are ballistic twins, an example of a newer compact cartridge efficiency’s I guess. I believe the 7mm-08 is capable and probably does what a .270 can but it’s just not as common but it appeals to me. I’d gladly buy a Rigby .275 Rigby Highland for nostalgia but there goes my trip budget so that’s out of reach. I use a .308 regularly, common in Australia but really it’s the .308, 7mm-08 or .300wm that’s I have on hand and I’m hoping to trade my CZ550 and get a .375H&H, that would do the plains game granted but it’s not in hand yet and I could be tempted to offload my .300win mag and get a Tikka in .300 or 7mmRen Mag or .270. I handload generally stick to readily available cartridges and standard chambering as I don’t get to technical, accuracy, shot placement and quality projectiles work for me. I’d have more variety but I can’t have everything.
