Classic situation that I suspect happens to a lot of us. It certainly happened to me. We buy DG rifles faster than we use them and there is a backlog in the gun safe to go to Africa ...
Exactly. In my safe there are rifles in .308 (Sheep rifle), .375, .416, .458, .500 calibers.
.500 has been to Africa for elephant and .416 for PG. I have used the .416 for Elk and .500 for bear as well.
I don't want the .375 and .458 to get jealous so they are going on this upcoming trip . The max range for PG is going to about 200 yards at Dante, well within the capabilities of either rifle with appropriate bullets. Personally, I'd rather have too much gun than not enough.
A friend of mine has been after me to put together a long range rifle and I have a .300 RUM in the works.
