nice rifle what calibre is it

id like to hunt elephant ,if i ever won the lotery LOL

Halo Dan, it the one in the picture is a 375h&h but I also shoot a 470ne...it helps a bit for the big stuff...and yes Elephant is a hard hunt, walking miles and miles just to get to that lone bull, big tusker, but the age is not right, so you have to let him go...

lovely rifle and great cartridge .375hh

i used to have a sako kodiak in .375hh used to reload rounds from 250gr to 380 gr.

what i like about the .375hh is the recoil was quite managable. Didnt seem much more than a .300win mag .I think it was down to very good case design with the shallow taper.

are you a PH Savanna ?

cheers Dan

To me a 375 is the perfect all round caliber...my double dont like me loading over 300gr because of the pressure it makes, but I feel that is all I need, I did use a 350gr Woodleigh at one stage, but yes my rifle didnt like it alot...and yes sir I am a ph, my grandfather was a hunter, and my dad is still today a ph, so I grew up hunting, and since I can remember, it was all I wanted to do...

I'll second that. Honestly couldn't think of a better career/life than being a PH/guide in either Africa or N.America.

 

More pictures please Savanna!

Couldn't pay me enough to shoot an elephant,hardly fecking sporting is it.....

Do some research on elephants

Have you seen a wild elephant.?

There a real problem in some areas. a pest and need to be culled if the numbers allow

And there incredibly tough to hunt not a walk in the park by any means

Cheers Dan

 

I ordered Tom Mirandas Dark Continent DVD just waiting for it to be delivered,shows bowhunting of africas big-five I know he gets a big elephant as he has it stuffed and its in his trophy room :thumbs: You can do a non-trophy elephant hunt in Zimbabwe for around £10k.

 

thats some theat ! I think he may have got a a N american grand slam with a bow also

what format do you get them IN region 1 or pal

ive got a cheap dvd player that plays region 1

 

The box-set came yesterday,i have watched the big-5 so far PAC elephant hunt in Zimbabwe,fantastic hippo hunt,crystal clear footage,well worth buying :thumbs:

I have to tell you, I wont exchange it for anything in the world. It is something I feel every hunter sould experience atleast once in their life...
