hi all - I tell you I am now fluent is "aussie" - never had so many laughs ....spending time with Bluey is fantastic. And to answer an earlier question on the .270 round in the sable - unfortunately poaching is a reality in Zambia and we lose animals every year. A lot to snaring and then to guys armed as well - they will try and take down anything. I have even had two of my horses shot with shotguns - one had 21 pellets in him. Luckily I managed to pull both through and hence stock a wide range of animal drugs. My son shot a sable a few weeks ago and we pulled out 5 pellets from him. Most animals will survive if not a gut shot and light calibre. thanks for the great post Bluey!
