1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    These guns tend to be light, so make sure you get one with the BOSS system, or your employee will get a concussion shooting that caliber!!

    My A Bolt 375 weighed 7 1/4 lbs. To say shooting it was a "surprise" is an understatement! LOL

    You will have a great rifle. Make sure he gets one with the BOSS. Non BOSS Brownings generally will shoot around 1/2 MOA. BOSS guns can shoot under .3 MOA.

    This assumes precision rifle loading techniques.

    He may have better luck with the 300 Win Mag. Less recoil, a lot less powder and better component choices. Nearly the same trajectory within normal game ranges.

    The 300 Win Mag has been a winner for many years. He can even get a heavy barrel rifle that will give stunning accuracy and 243 recoil. It can push a 190 gr Match or hunting bullet at or near 3200 fps.

    If one needs more power than this, he is likely going to Africa or Mars.
