The main problem, I think, is that hardly anyone practices with these heavy weapons during the year ?

In one chapter he explains a thing he would do for weeks before going to Africa: dry fire in front of the TV. He would sit with his heavy bolt action rifle, and "shoot" every letter O that he saw on the screen: safety off, rifle to shoulder, aim, squeeze, work the bolt, aim squeeze, work the bolt....

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA

Does anyone know where to buy a chamber reamer to convert .458 win to .458 Lott? I hear it is very easy to do—?
