Re: 221 fireball
I typed 221 into Google, got this question and from it discovered this website!
I have just had a 221 built on a Sako action and suspect it will be one of less than half a dozen in South Africa where I ranch and run a hunting outfit.
I suspect that it will be perfect for our hyrax (dassie) hunting of which there is plenty. They look a bit like rock chucks and weigh 6 lbs.
It could work for our springbok (I have shot many with a 222), but unless conditions are ideal I prefer a bigger caliber. Springbok weigh up to about 8o lbs and I have an annual quota of 500 on my ranch.
Anyone want to come hunting?! Keep up the info on the 221 as there sure is nothing this side of the ocean.[URL=http://www.graaffreinetsafaris.co.za]
