    Welcome to the forum TinTin! Australia is on my bucket list. Spent a day in Melbourne and ten days in Tasmania. The people we met in Tasmania were some of the nicest I have met anywhere. They were very helpful and so curious about the US. Wonderful trip!

    Giday and welcome Tintin. I spent some time in Qld (75-87) but like a few others on the sits NZ is home for me. Many here will never hunt Africa but still have much to share on thier own particular hunting experiences, rifles and associated equipment which we all use.

    Thanks all for the kind welcomes.

    S43 - biggest critters I've taken are Sambar.

    Because I believe in ethical and humane hunting - I have used the 458WM on rabbits ;-) but over-penetration and meat damage tends to be an issue ;-)

    I've got a few toys - but still plenty of calibre gaps to justify a few more ;-)

    Not very African - but I have a bit of a hankering for some Wild West goodness so a 45-70 lever might be next on the list after the 404 project.

    Not so if you go for head shots. I know for sure it worked well with my 375 H&H ;-)
