Re: big bores
[QUOTE=bigboretkm;469607]Thanks for info. As to rockymtnmt I am triying to get a rifle to fil two two uses 1 med to long range brownie gun
2 and one that would stop a charge from any of the big six in africa.
I currently own 11 chamberings in a t/c pro hunter wich include 270wby, 300 win mag, 338 federal,8mm rem mag,375 hh,375 jdj,416 rigby,450 marlin,470 NE,20ga slug, and 12ga slug however as you know there all single shot and would like something that has a quick second shot if needed.also most africian countries have a 375 cal min and some a 40 cal min.
You should find some of the before modern era African Safari books. the 375 H&H 416 Rigby, and the 470 NE that you already own were used.
I go to the Safari club international shows. If you want real excitement look for some of the videos on African black death hunting with the 18 inch barrel 50 BMG. Then you just walk out to a herd of cape buff and when the bull charges you pull it up and smoke it at 50 feet away. Or the thick brush lion hunting when they jump out to get you.
I have a friend with a S&w 50 cal pistol that went to alaska bear hunting and walked out in the river to the fishing bears and took out a 9 footer when it charged him at 30 feet away.
.270 Ackley improved 29 inch 1.250 dia. target barrel 7mm STW 28 inch 1.250 target barrel. I also love my .458 mag for varmints and the biggest game in the world.
