So after an interesting conversation with Mark Sullivan on doubles and makes the other day: "my grandmother shoots a .500NE and a .470NE is great for squirrels or rabbits"... "I don't allow Blaser or Krieghoff in my camp" (due to the way the safety mechanism works). I am stuck on the below: Hyem or Verney Carron in a .577NE .577 NE more practical in performance/weight/handling than 600NE. Given the option I would rather shoot a 700NE than a 600 due to better powder burn/speed from 50MBG primer with Somchem powder (what we have in RSA). Rifle Weight difference between 600 and 700 will more or less be the same. My choice will be 577NE What are your thoughts if you were to buy a new double for dangerous game hunting?
