Re: Which rifle would you take into this situation?
I've never been to Africa so I just know what I read; but a 300# black bear and an African Lion seem like two completly different animals---requiring two different guns. For the bear, Rem 1100 and a tube full of slugs or a rifle would be my semi auto -06 with some big heavy (read bone crushing)bullets...for the lion, 375, 416, or 458 double rifle (and a bible).
I have a video of some guys shooting a wounded lion but I do not know how to attach it. The lion gets some revenge before he gives it up.
