Thanks, Von S ! I return to the states in 14 days. I am currently in the UK . It's the Glorious 12th and Driven grouse shooting is a passion of mine. Unfortunately , l just realized that my Full choke 12 gauge BRNO over under is a really poor choice for this kind of shooting I am either missing them birds clean , or if l am hitting them , they are getting mangled so much , they don't make good eating . Oh , well. Looks like l have a new excuse to buy a new shotgun. Looking for a Cylinder Choke Winchester Model 21 with 3 inch Chambers which will give me open patterns with #6 and which l can also use as a double slug gun with Brenekke slugsHoss
Actially , every round that has ever been fired out of a rifle is a stopper of something........... just maybe not what might be being shot at, but something none the less.
I genuinely like the 375 H&H, just not for stuff THAT IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM WANTS TO HURT ME.....from any country.
I had a conversation with with a ph long ago about the hunters who bring big bore magnums to hunt with. He said that he's all for it as long as they can hit with it.
The most common of the monster mashers would be the 460 Weatherby. Yes! The recoil is brutal and yes! It is too brutal for most people to shoot accurately or even shoot at all. Having spent the majority of my life buying and selling firearms I believe that at one time I might have ad 7 or 8 used ones for sale at one time at a fair price. Of course the original owners did not like what I offered them for a gun with 2 rounds through it, but the gun if not sold correctly might sit there for a decade or two before one tire kicker finally spits out enough nickles after looking at it for the umteenth time.
Other one that are somewhat difficult to control are the 577 tr, the 600ok and who doesn't want a 505 or the numerous a&m or other torture sticks?
There is another fellow here who is a gentleman like yourself amd is a representative for Huntershill and just came bach from a murder spree of 17 one shot humane kill shots and has written a wonderful report and I believe you teo will get along well together.
Let us know how the shooting progresses with your new iron.
