    I am an active sporting clays shooter but like big bores and am looking to get a 450 Rigby, 500 Jeffries, or 505 Gibbs to shoot rocks sticks and beer cans. Maybe a trip to Africa.

    Welcome to AH, Richard. Some fine calibres that you are contemplating. @matt85 is well known here on AH, and will be able to chime in on the different rounds. He took a Cape Buffalo here with us, with his .505 Gibbs. One of the most beautifully balanced rifles I have had the pleasure of handling.

    Welcome. You must like big bores, the ones you mentioned would get most folks attention. What and when are you planning to hunt in Africa?
