Joined today after seeing some old familar names on here. Love hunting & big bores. Probably my all time favorite cartridge is the .375 H&H and I use it for eveything here in the US (even prairie dogs once in a while). I have traveled to Africa a good bit. Hope to hunt there some day but with 2 kids in college that is distant.

Long range shooting. I have seen a long range shot hitting a prairie dog using a .50 cal. Expensive but if you are into long range stuff and can afford it.
