I saw Phil Spangler of G&A took a Buff with 45/70 with Garret Loads. I am thinking of taking on mbogo and while the thought of a new .416 or 375 is pleasant, I kind of want to get one with a rifle I already have, my No. 1 45/70. How fun to look at the mopane scratches in the stock day dreaminig about africa while huntinig elk or even sittinig in a Kansas deer stand. If I got an "african" big bore it would never come out of the safe back home. I'm sure that the 500 grain Hornady solid at 1800 fps is plently, any legal issues? Zimbabwe or Mozambique most likley. I know a single shot....Thats what the PH with an Evans 470 double is for.
