First of all I'm starting to hate this forum all i do these days is look up African hunting and large bore rifles, feel like my little bank account will be hanging in the red! All this talk of cals has me wondering. I'm very much an average joe, i dont have the money for DG hunts and are not likely to in my lifetime realistically. BUT you just never know! maybe i do need one after my 275 is finished. My current safe is a 30-06, the 275 rigby, and a 50 cal muzzleloader. I can justify a bigger cal as long as i can load it down for sambar. A 250gn barnes from 9.3x62 comes to mind (brother has that in sako blackbear). Ive shot deer with it and enjoy it, it kicks a bit on the bench but nothing uncomfortable Any recommendations on a rifle calibre that would suit? Something that can go down to a 250 or 350gn projectile with mild loading for general use but can be bumped if if i ever say hunt water buffalo or draw a MT grizzly tag (great odds on that im sure!) Really starting to like cz 550 as a good working man rifle so thats a likely make.
