Default RE: My gun for Africa....

ORIGINAL: BareBack Jack

Brutal,
I have never hunted africa and probaly never will.I do how ever have the guns,If I was going to.

If I could only take just one it would be the .416 Rem mag.Shoots flat enough for plains game and carries enough energy for the biggest of beasts.The recoil is not as much as one would think and probaly be on par with the .375 RUM.
You wouldn't be to under guned with the 375 H&H or the 458 Lott(give you the option of shooting 458 win mag in a pinch).
Good luck
BBJ
thanks for the advice. I would like to take as much gun as I can possibly shoot reliably. I just wish I knew someone around here that had one so I could shoot it.
