@roverandbrew, here is a pic of how I have attached the sling on my highland stalker. Both els & co and trader Keith have pics on how these slings are intended to be tied on the stud. I tried them but prefer this method. It is more secure and imo cleaner.

If it’s to be a highland stalker it simply must be a 275 rugby anything else would be sacrilege. But if I were choosing a caliber for your intended purpose the 30-06 is definitely more versatile. Just one mans opinion.

I ended up getting the Hexalock Scope Mounts. So far no issues. Mounted a Leupold VX3I.

Heres a bull taken the week end with 275 and 140 hydros. No recovered projectiles. First would have been enough but as he was still up right 2 more. to put him on the ground quickly.

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there
