BTW Boys, I wana play in the .22 wars, I was told a story by an old friend, he said.
Death in the Long Grass" author, Peter Hathaway Capstick, once killed an elephant on a bet with a .22 LR.
Does anyone know if this is true?:)
I've not read that one . I've read where they killed elephant with .270's and 6.5's . they would pull the bullets and load them in the case backwards . the base of the bullet has a full metal jacket profile . its probly not the safest option but beats the heck out of being trampled and gored .
I've always heard that the ladies like something bigger around rather than something longer , like a bull barrel (good and fat and stiff ) .
