Should I leave my 300 H&H at home and just carry the 500 Jeffery for Sable and plainsgame?




No, of course not. If you are comfortable shooting a charging Cow elephant with it than take it.

Seriously, common sense comes into play also. If you are in the Kalahari shooting Springbok the chances are slim you will run into a Lion. However if you are in Zambia hunting Oribi and Impala the chances of running into a Buff or Ele or Lion is much greater, in fact probable. A 300 could be a mistake.

My original post dealt with my impression that many think that they can bring a light rifle etc to hunt DG with because the PH is there to protect them. That only the PH needs a stopping rifle.

I disagree with this theory as I believe that Murphy was an Optimist.

One should be prepared to protect oneself in case the PH can't do it.
