Good day all

I am in the market for my first hunting rifle. Basically i am looking at the Howa range due to good reviews and price.

I noticed that there are the Hogue stock models and GRS Berserk models. As a new hunter living in South Africa and will mostly be hunting in the bush, i am wondering if the GRS stock will be a problem?

Any advice and personal experience with this?

Regards

Hi Elton,

It all depends on what type of hunting you will do and what type of species you will hunt. The most encountered rifle in SA is a CZ 550 or ZKK600, they are affordable, rugged, and easy to find/sell. in calibers from 7x57 to 270, 300win mag, 375HH up to 416 Rigby.

A good thing to do before you decide is to go hunting with a fellow hunter's gun to make your own thoughts of what you need.

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.
