    Welcome to AH Erik7181. Most of us hunt deer and hogs as well. Doing so keeps you tuned up for the "good stuff." What species of African game were you thinking about hunting?

    Well I’m sure evryone grew up wanting to hunt the big 5. I’m not sure how realistic that is. I’m planning on buying a CZ safari classic in .375 H&H hopefully within the year.
    I’m still new to hunting but I have 3 animals already bagged.

    CZ(s) have a penchant for not feeding properly. Have you looked at Winchester's Mod. 70 Safari Express in 375 H&H? If not I'd recommend doing so. Reason being, they generally function properly and shoot well.
