50 BMG, cause that’s the only thing you can get ammo for right now and I don’t see it getting any better.

12 gauge. Highly versatile. Wide selection of ammo. Exempt of the .50 cal restriction. Puts .73 cal holes thru hogs using slugs. Capable of sniping out to 250 yards with smooth bore alone.

Guess I would settle for an old M21 since I have a great familiarity with that platform. Might even take an M25 since it's newer but would want a better piece of glass on it with variable power.

Just a reminder. It aint how big the caliber is..its where YA HIT EM!...

If recoil and or muzz blast affect your accuracy your probably Too much Gun..

Just a reminder
Bell recorded all of his kills and shots fired. It was a business to him, not pleasure, and he needed to record expenditures.

He shot exactly 1,011 elephants; about 800 of them were shot with Rigby-made 7x57mm (.275 Rigby) rifles and round nose 173 grain military ammo.
