I rotate through all my rifles for hunting but my absolute favorite is my model 1905 Mannlicher Schoenauer. It speaks to me when I carry it. Transports me to another time and place. It fits me like a tailored suit. But I guess I appreciate it most because it didn't come easy. Took me almost 6 months to figure out how to make good reloads for it. I was 58 when it came to me by suprize. I walked into a gun shop and there it was. I picked it up and threw it to my shoulder and worked the bolt. I knew come he'll or high water it was coming home with me. Traded a nice 35 Whelan and cash and it was mine. I can close my eyes and smell and hear Africa when I hold it. No I will not part with it while still breathIng. I have other guns I have killed more game with some that are .it's accurate. By none with half as much soul.
