I honestly wouldn't worry about it. If big government wants to find you...they can. The technology in use today is astounding.

Even the tinfoil hat I sleep in won't stop the government mind control rays from penetrating my skull.  And the voices, oh, the voices, don't even get me started on the voices in my head!  ;D   


Hang on a minute.... Are you saying the voices I am hearing are put in my head by the government?! So all this time I thought I was going crazy but it's the government that I'm hearing???  :o

A buff hunt with you and Chris would be great Brett.What Outfittter do you use there?


Well I don't have an outfitter at the moment. Where I use to go the bloke died and then the property sold. But I do know of several other quality outfitters in the NT. I will post some up tomorrow or the next day when I get back home.

Like I said about Roger's .375, "That rifle just screams Australian water buffalo hunt!"
Maybe you and Roger could book a hunt for Down Under buffalo. It'd be much cheaper than Africa.... Go on do it.... I will come along with yas too  ;D

Well Roger I think that setup is just screaming "Aussie Water Buffalo!"
But with say a 300 grain Woodliegh PPSN.

Nice work. Pity about not finding the boar though. But that happens unfortunately.

Yep as DWS I do have a few of those Z3's. If memory serves I have the 4-12x42 with BRH reticle on a Mark V ULW in .240 Wby. The same scope with just plain 4A reticle on e Remington 700 in 7mm rem mag. The smaller 3-9x32 with 4A reticle on a Mark V DGR in .375 H&H. Plus a 4-12x50 on a CZ Varmint in .204 ruger.
I think that is all the Z3's I have and YES I do rate them very highly. You get great glass and a tough as nails scope for quite a reasonable price.
I don't think you will go wrong with putting one of them on your new rifle.

Aint no better excuse to buy a rifle than "because I just want one"!
I too have a .375 Ruger. Mine is part of a switch barrel rifle called the Rossler Titan 6. I have a 6.5x65 RWS barrel with leupold 4.5-14x40 and the .375 Ruger barrel with a Leupold 1.75-6x32.
I am yet to shoot the .375 barrel and have not used the 6.5 one on any animals yet. But I will do one day...
One hunt I wish to do is to Argentina for Buffalo, red deer and an assortment of other critters. The switch barrel Titan will be the firearm I take with me.

I do a lot of hunting in rainy weather. I love getting out after pigs when it rains. I have a dedicated wet weather rifle, it's a Tikka T3 SS in .243 with 3.5-10x40 Leupold scope with flip up scope covers. I have never had the rain mess up a shot over normal ranges, well where I hunt pigs 300 yards would be a long shot.
So I say pack ya raincoat and get out in the wet weather. You will be amazed at how many critters actually move about when it is raining.

Well one positive side of running factory ammo is that you are pretty much guaranteed they will be reliable. As long as you have tested them and sighted your rifle in with them. You would probably only need a packet or two. The Swift A-Frame would sort the biggest buffalo out.
But if it were me, I'd be using my own reloads.

That is a great photo of your lego spaceship... not sure if there are any lego fans on here though haha  ;D

Well without sounding rude ASF, why go to all the trouble of working up reloads only to use factory ammo on your hunt?
There is nothing better than taking a big game animal like water buffalo with ammo you have hand rolled yourself.
If you have your load working consistently and are accurate I say load your rifle up with them and go get your trophy buff!
By the way how's about posting some pics of the big girl. All the guys, well and girls on here love a bit of gun porn lol.

I don't use Bergers in my 25-06 but I do use the 115gr Ballistic Silvertip. I load 55 grains of AR2213sc (H4183sc) behind it.

Do you know what velocity you are getting with the 300gr BT's?

I think the 300gr Barnes pills would be great for pigs, deer, donkeys etc. They would penetrate a bit before the petals came off, then they would to more damage, whilst the as you say the core will continue to penetrate.

You have any plans to hunt big critters with your .460?

I've only used mine on 2 scrub bulls but off to Africa in September to use it on a Cape Buff.

Good to see another Aussie on here ASF!

Yes I use 2213sc in my .257, .300 and .340 weatherbys. It is a great powder for them.
I tried both 2209 and 2213sc in the .460 and got good results. But as us handloaders do I had a play with 2206H and got better results.

Yeah I too find the recoil of the .460 manageable. Those 300 grain BT's would be great fun to use on pigs. Might load some up myself and give em a whirl.

While I am not stuck using non lead bullets I am a huge fan of Barnes TSX's. I run them in a lot of my rifles and especially in high velocity ones and dangerous game calibers. I too didn't have much luck with the E-tips and couldn't get them to shoot as accurate as I can the Barnes.
But most of my day to day rifles still use simply cup and core lead projectiles.
