I'm with Nyati on this subject; size doesn't matter to me. The Cape Buff on my bedroom wall is missing half a horn, an old bloke who had "been through the wars". He makes a good hat rack. I actually measured the Oryx a week or so back; the Outfitters suggested 40", he's actually right on a meter (39.36"), I don't care .... but, the memories ....

B&C sucks IMO because the mass of the points has no value, but you get more mass measurements the more points you have on the beam. So a heavier buck with less points can have a smaller mass score than a thin buck with lots of points.
.

Your statement regarding mass measurements is not really accurate - the B&C system (for most multi pointed game like whitetail deer) allows 4 mass measurements (on the main beam) irregardless of how many points the antler has.

And I totally agree with you, the system gives no credit or recognition to mass in the points - which in most peoples opinion, is one of the most impressive features on a set of antlers from a mature animal

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.
