Still confusing! The only smoothbore I use on DG is either my 9.3x74R/12ga combo or my "poor man's double", which is a sxs, double trigger, sidelock Brno shotgun with barrels cut back to 24 inches, front sight fitted and ghost ring on the back. The application however is limited to follow up on Leopard and hunting bushpigs in the thick stuff and warthogs for kicks. Loaded with Brenneke slugs it is perfect for this use, however that is where it ends. Using this on any other member of the DG brigade(except perhaps lioness in a pinch) would be, well, suicidal! As for DG bolt actions and "drop away" magazines, well, another disaster waiting to happen! My 375 H&H takes 6 rounds, a 404 Jeff on the same action 5 and my 500 Jeff on the same action 4. Now trust me if you cannot stop what you need to with that amount of firepower, you should probably not be guiding clients hunting DG or on foot safari in a DG area. If you do need to reload(top up) either after firing the first or second shot or even if you get to the point where the mag is empty, it is much faster to top load another round in a proper DG rifle than to try and dump the magazine and fit another. This topping up can be done while on the move without taking your eyes off of the action so to speak. The tools of the trade are either a proper double rifle or a proper bolt action DG rifle, my choice has always been the bolt action and the above mentioned doubles for leopard.
