    Hi everyone. I am brand new to this forum and looking forward to getting info on double rifles. I live in Adelaide South Australia and hunt all over Australia and l am lucky enough to go work in South Africa twice a year for a few months so I get to hunt there as well.

    Welcome to our great community Reckless! We have a couple of Aussies here, so I have no doubt that you will fit right in.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the welcome. I have hunted water Buffalo in the Northern Territory, deer here in South Australia and wild pigs in most other states. I have hunted a number of times in South Africa on a farm outside Rustenburg and hope to be going back in September after a Blue Wildebeest that I stalked for hours on my last trip only to lose him at a dam at dusk. I am try to research double rifles in particular a .470 NE. Do you have any views on different calibre's?

    Welcome Reckless! You might want to look up Paul T, another member here. While I believe he's in north Australia where he runs a hunting business, at least he's in the same country and he has experience with doubles.
