Not incouraging anyone to violate the minimum caliber (if one exist) when it comes to to size but a 6.5x55 in the correct location with a suitable bullet beats a .500 NE in the wrong location any day of the week.

Also Big Bore would depend on whether you define it as starting at .400 or .450.

jp,

i would ask what you consider a "large bore" we in america tend to go on the light side of large. here a 375 is a "cannon!" in africa, i believe it is considered a medium.

so, the 450-400 is pretty mild. the 416's or 404 jeff can be loaded down to whatever you consider a reasonable price to pay in recoil. above that level, you are out of the "MILD" category

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.
