Re: Do you prefer a hunting rifle with a detachable mag?
As a profesional Kangaroo shooter, detachable mags are a real hinderance. We do it all under spotlight and very often the roo will move away while taking aim and I dont get to make the shot. Therefore it is much easier to open the bolt and push the cartridge back down into the mag box than it is to open the bolt, take out the round, take out the detachable mag, reload the round into the mag, and then put the mag back in. I no longer shoot roos profesionally but old habits die hard!
