Multiple Rear Blade Sights?

I recently saw a post on a thread about the best all purpose caliber (sorry, I don't remember who posted it), and they said their choice for the best set up would be a .375 H&H with rear blade sights cut for 50 yds, one for 100 yds, and the third for 200 yds. Now, I've been into shooting sports for well over 12 years, and I've never seen anything like this. Are multiple rear sights common in African hunting? I just don't see how the sight picture would work. It sounds like a good idea though.

Mine rifle is new. The sights are commonly found on newly-made rifles that are made in the "express rifle" style. Not typically found on budget rifles.

I expected not. I have always been into the more "tactical" shooting style here in the US, so I'm not too familiar with hunting rifles, and I'm slowing finding that these are the types of features you can pay dearly for. Thanks for the help!

Thanks! That's just what I was looking for. I'll have to do some research and see what people have to say about it.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
