??? Why ? historical ammo ... maybe a little weak ... but so soft
Norwegianwoods was agreeing with my vote for the 9.3x62, from the cartridges listed by the original poster, and was pondering which one to choose for his next PG hunt.
So, if according to you thw hunting world is suddenly suffering from "maybe a little weak ... but so soft" 9.3x62 ammunition, it is a news flash to me.
And here I'd been stumbling along in my ignorant bliss that, the 9.3x62 had been developed specifically for Africa and enjoys a 100 + year stellar reputation in that regard.
BUG BUG ... I didn't speak about 9.3x62 ... I have one : CZ 550 synthetic 9.3x62 : if I have to keep only one rifle I would hesitate between 9.3x62
375H&H or .. 338WM .. I wrote about the old "velodog" cartridge ... Lol
My joke wasn't very clear ...
Velodog : when I was (very) young - XX years ago - I gazed longingly at these small pistols ... Later , the Vaquero will replace the Velodog ..
in my dream .. associated with a Winch 94 .. and today I use 9.3x62 & .416RM ..., long range : .270W ....
Aren't you afraid of the weight of the (exceptional) Howa 1500 in .375Ruger, not too light? I'm in love with it but in .270W ( long range).30-06 Springfield (first rifle was a WWII milsurp 1903 A3)
6.5 x 55 SE (Swede, SKAN, Norwegian; they're all awesome)
.243 Winchester (neatest little 6mm ever)
My mind may change a bit if and when I make it up between the 375 Ruger and 416 Ruger, still not really sure which one, although I am leaning towards the 375 Ruger because I can build one on a Howa action with a 24" barrel. With hand loads, this will surpass the 375 H&H in every category.
