    i shot the cow with a old MS in 9.3x62 and the eland-neala with a cz 550 in .375 H&H, I shot 90 precent of the animals I took on six trips with the .375. but with the you wound it and don,t find it, you bought it. the 375 made sense to me.

    Its a nice toy and we all like them.
    The double rifle is essentially not carried by hunters in Germany.Its not a pricequestion.
    Even the boar specialists do not carry it and lie on their stomachs in the thickest stuff without a double rifle.They risk their lives also.You dont need an elephant to die.
    Ivan CArter(is he still shooting the .450 ? ), a master of his class, pretends as if the second shot is always sitting, woe you need the third shot, then the holy double rifle is not worth more than a baseball bat.
