I am planning to have a double rifle built for use on buffalo and elephant. I am undecided between .450 NE, .470 NE, or .500 NE. I understand that ammo is more common for .470 and .500 NE. Do you have any recommendations?
An interesting question, because there are many things to consider. As you mention, one of them is ammo--and this is an aspect that concerns me.
I just returned from my third plains-game hunt in RSA and I want to return next year for crocodile. My PH told me to hunt crocodile with whatever rifle that I am most comfortable with, but recommended solids. Kevin, what is your recommendation? My PH actually took a croc in the Limpopo River with a .22-250 Rem, but I don't want to be undergunned. I was thinking about my .300 Win Mag with Barnes solids.
