    I love seeing you showing off those Peter Hathaway Capstick books.
    I've read a bunch of his stories, and they always fascinate me.
    I've also had the pleasure of reading "Pondoro" by John Taylor.

    45-70 Loaded hot in the right rifle is quite relevant in this dept.

    Although here in my home province of Saskatchewan, I try to elk and moose hunt every year that I can. I could almost justify the use of a .375 h&h for such critters. A rare an expensive rifle in this part of the world

    If ever I have the funds to dangerous game hunt, it will be a Winchester 1895 in .405 Winchester. Just something about a lever gun that keeps my attention.

    It's no where as dangerous as a African hunt or a big bear hunt.
    But a cheap easy way at least the first few times you do it. To get your heart pumping knife hunt hogs.

    Have you had the fun/ pleasure of shooting a 460 wb. Mag?
    I have a buddy that bought one from a guy that bought the rifle 5 boxes of shells.
    He fired 3 rounds and put it up for sell cheap according to my buddy.
    He has let a few of us friends shoot the rifle……I have tried to figure out what I did to p him off….he let me shoot it 5 times.

    I dream about one day going to Africa to hunt Buffalo and plains game. I could never shoot a lion or elephant no offense to anybody that does . That looks like the perfect rifle for Africa. Simple beautiful and very reliable set up. Thanks again Mike

    Great video. What type of range can you get from tbe 404 Jeffery?

    I’m fond of the 404 as well. I read a study where the conclusion was that all of the 40, or near 40, caliber round nose bullets, lend themselves to deep penetration more readily. I would prefer to speak with a few guides who have taken apart a number of Cape a buffalo’s and the rest of the Big 5. But with good marksmanship, most all of those cartridges can kill efficiently.

    The difference comes when you have to put down an angry, fighting mad African animal.

    LOL, "Big medicine"…My Father's side of the family is kin to the Roosevelts, both Theodore and the other. We are the poor relations although the name continues. None are named Franklin…Several Theodore namesakes in each generation. My son was tagged with it and he deals with it each time his name is called or he signs it. Every time I want a new gun I start showing my wife elephant guns, tell her the family history of Teddy and we settle for something else…

    I have a 1915 Erfurt Mauser, need to do something with it..maybe make my own Alaskan version in a nice potent cartridge.

    I’ve read everything Capstick has written. I love his sayings, especially “Deader than easy credit.” I’ve read Bell’s book about ivory hunting in the Victorian era. Selous, Patterson’s “The Lions of Tsavo.” All great books. I have others in my library but I can’t remember them all right now. Great video as usual.

    I couldn't believe seeing your .404 Jeffrey. I owned this very rifle for a short time. I bought it from Reliable Gun Vancouver. It has a paint like finish that makes working the safety and removing the floor-plate difficult. I disassembled the gun to see how the magazine was altered for the longer cartridge and could not believe the shoddiness of the work. Scrap metal poorly welded to make the magazine front and rear walls. I sent pictures to Reliable Gun and they immediately sent me return postage even though they do not have a return policy for used firearms. Sand blasting and rust blueing with new bottom metal would remedy the situation. Also the Lyman rear sight should have the excessively long hex head screw replaced by a proper one. It is unfortunate that removing the peep sight would leave unsightly mortises in the stock.

    Cartridges of the World, the bible of cartridges, confirms Teddy Roosevelt's love for the 405 Winchester. Nevertheless, it also reports that he considered it notably inferior to the 375 H&H on dangerous game.

    My fav .458win mag Here in AK the .458wm will drop a moose no twitching. Every 1 uses 500gn but they are mistaken the Hornaday interlock round noise 350 gn goin 2500+ and will strait drop shit and my 700 can with no lie put every shot in the same hole at 100 yards it is bedded and may be trued or blue printed but over 30+ years with 4X m8 leupold compact scope never had to . Have fun dropin game with your 404. We are all cave men at heart at least I am. When a Grizzly start talking like the devil a shiver of fear goes through me and a primal switch is flipped kill or be killed we all think that this has changed with the internet and amazon but the truth is we still are the same cave men and there are still monsters that come out in the night here in Alaska. Thats why in Alaska we call tents TWINKYS they are yellow and we are the cream filling.

    How often do you find a box of the heavier recoiling calibers with a single round missing?

    Have you read White Hunters by Brian Herne? I have listened to the audiobook multiple times on YouTube but I got lucky this weekend and found a signed copy at a gun show for $20, made my day.

    I think it’s important to put a 7×57 on the table to show what how amazing it was for WDM Bell to take as many elephants as he did without getting trampled. I recently had a Mauser 98 rebarrelled to 7×57 for just that reason.

    Someone told me the other day that a grizzly skull stopped two rounds of 7.62×54 FMJ. I had a hard time believing it. What do you think?

    I have a Mauser in 9.3×62 , it's a great round , works in a standard action and is very low pressure for its power .

    Hunter by J.A. Hunter is one of my favorite books, it's a bit old and not easy to find but it's about hunting in Africa and I enjoyed it.

    I would very much like to build a 375 ruger on a P-14. Gunsmithing is pricey these days, and it is not likely that I will ever be able to go on an African safari, or to hunt polar bear in Canada's arctic. The volatility of Africa these days is discouraging. The dipstick (ndp) provincial government in British Columbia shut down the grizzly hunt, which negates the practicality of a dangerous game rifle for my unforeseeable future. If you can believe it, John Horgan (ndp premier) ended the grizzly hunt because he received some 4000 emails requesting him to do so. Hardly scientific. Death in the Long Grass is required reading for any hunting buff!

    I recommend that you stick with the receiver sight, or go with a low powered scope on your .404.
