300 H&H in Pre-64 Winchester Model 70
375 H&H in pre-64 Winchester Model 70
12 Gauge Belgian Browning Model A5

I own and have extensive experience hunting with and shooting each of these. If I had to have only these three hunting arms, I have no doubt they would serve me well.

Great question! My favorite battery is my pre 64 model 70 in 300 H&H loaded with 200 grain A-frames, my 416 Rigby big game with 400 grain A-frames, and my 12 bore Westley Richards droplock. Both the rifles have been to Africa, but the shot gun has not. When I brought a shotgun to Africa it was my Parker VH.

300 win mag 180 grain Nosler Partions in a heavily customized Remington 700

375 H&H 300 grain Swift Aframes in a Remington 700.

12 Gauge Remington 870. It’s old but always gets the job done.

My choice fits into one case and is one I have taken on all three of my trips to Africa. It is a Krieghoff "Teck" boxlock O/U double rifle in caliber .458 Winchester Magnum, with extra barrel sets in .375 H&H Magnum and 20 gauge 3" Magnum. With it I have taken elephant, Cape buffalo, lion, leopard, eland, greater and lesser kudu and a heap of ducks, sand grouse and Guniea fowl.

German made Bergstutzen with a 9.3x74R/7x57R barrel 24" and a second barrel set 20ga 3"/7x65R 25" with 5 chokes, cylinder, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, full

That would do me nicely.....

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
