I know the Hornady DGX is not ideal for actual hunting compared to A frames and such. I am curious about the Hornady solids though. My double shoots extremely well with the Hornady DGX and it shoots to the same POI/POA with my swift A Frame hunting load. I was just curious if the DGS was useable for hunting. It seems like it would be easy to match it up with the loads I'm running now as far as my softs go. Has anyone hunted with the Hornady DGS and had good or bad experience?
Also nothing wrong with the DGX bonded, its a fantastic bullet, great performance in the field and one of my go to bullets for the 375H&H.

Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
