    Yep you'll be fine, Teddy Roosevelt took a .405 Winchester lever action to Africa so why not. You'll need more than one round though.

    So what you are suggesting is I put the 450 Terminator barrel back in my AR10 & push the 250 FTXs at 3100 fps....

    Semi Auto big Bore

    Hello I am new here. I know a few people on this thread from Accurate Reloading.

    I am just waiting for my 470 NE that I bought on Holts Auction. I also shoot a 9.3X62 that is over 100 years old.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !
