Growing up I read a bit and among other things I decided I wanted a Remington Sendero In .300wm, I decided it’s a must have calibre. But that’s not my idea of a Safari rifle, I have an old M77 that works. I got it at a fair price but don’t like the plastic stock, a new stock won’t be cheap and I probably want another gun. Now as an armchair expert I considered the 7mmRem mag and .300wm would be good for plains game, if just the right thing came up. We all need a ..375H&H anyway but see that’s for DG, versatile but we’d may as well take 2 rifles to Africa So there is the .338wm as well, apparently it is widely used but that was going to be my choice in all weather S/S for bear. Can’t take the .375H&H safari rifle to to Alaska Also I met an older gentleman, an African hunting veteran who only used the .270 and .338 I wasn’t sure about my first Tikka T3 being modular and stuff but I got over it. Now I think having more Tikkas is ok so I can swap stocks, mounts and accessories easily if I choose. There is a good deal on used a Tikka .338wm but I’m dreaming and schemeing for Africa at present and I can’t really get it and store it till I get the urge to spend more than I can currently on taming a Grizzly. i currently run 6 centrefire calibres at the moment. I want to narrow it down to in time and use them more. If I was going dedicated Plains game rifle (Magnum) what would people suggest? I will always have a .223 so to me a betweener and a suitable DG would cover me on every continent. Until I can justify more purchases.
