The thing I like about the medium bores, is that you can see them in, slow mo hunting videos, create a Doppler effect when they hit a game animal. I haven’t seen that with smaller caliber cartridges, other than a .270 Winchester.
They tend to make a shockwave almost immediately on impact, that...
Thank you for responding!
Yeah, I know it’s probably been gone over several hundreds of times already. I just didn’t find many old threads about it.
Don’t get me wrong, I know the .375 H&H is a classic, and it’s taken more African game than any other cartridge, rifle combo.
I am hoping the .375...
Thank you DrMike.
I had a 375 H&H a few years ago, and that was a push, just like you mentioned.
I figure, if I load it like a 375 H&H, it should give around the same push, I would think.
The old Ruger M77 rifles had very thin butts, and with magnum rounds, it was almost intolerable.
I’ve got my eye on a Ruger Hawkeye African in the same caliber. That has a 23 inch barrel.
I’m trying to sell my Weatherby Mark V .300 Win Mag to pay for the Ruger.
Something about that cartridge and rifle combo just draws me to it.
I finally pulled the trigger on getting me a .375 Ruger. I did my homework before buying a Mossberg Patriot Stainless Synthetic with a 22 inch barrel. The majority of reading people’s actual reviews, and reading a few articles about the rifle have been quite positive.
I don’t have a...
Excellent work as usual Guy!!
I’ve been putting CFE Pistol in .38 Special loads, and with 125 gr HP bullets, it gets the same velocity as a 9x19mm round, without all of the pressure involved.
I can’t wait to use it in my .45 ACP now, with the 200 gr HP’s, and 230 gr bullets.
Yeah, this guy is always cracking my stones about his “real” world velocities with his .308, and 165gr bullets.
I know, for a fact, that my .270 will shoot flatter, hit harder at distances longer than 300 yds than his .308! Hell, I know, because I have a .308!
I have mentioned before that he is...
I’m trying to get some info from y’all on real world velocities for the .270 Win!
There’s a guy on another site that always likes to argue about real world velocities, instead of book load ones.
He’s always touting his .308 Win with a 24 inch barrel, and comparing 130 gr bullets of...
The reason why Jack O’Connor had such great success was because he used the 130 gr Nosler Partition bullet.
Today’s premium bullets make the .270 Winchester even that much better. I have a .270, and I won’t hesitate to light elk up with it, and even at some distance, if need be.
There aren’t any flies on the .270!
It has, to the chagrin, of many magnumites, including myself, taken elk, and moose, without sweating.
Back in the late 80’s, I bought my first high powered rifle, influenced by the likes of Craig Boddington, and Gary Sitton, and got me a 7mm Rem Mag. Why...
I always like shooting events that you just get to know the other people. Man! I’ve always dreamt of owning a double rifle in a Safari cartridge. I think 470 would be the highest.
But, I think I’m going to enjoy my 9.3x62 a lot more. Not as much recoil. But after 35 rounds, I’m sure it’s quite...
