    Hunting lions

    has anybody here gone to africa to hunt lions?

    I got my CORE this past fall and I think I am going to put in for LEH in Tanzania. I have a new 710 in 270 sighted in ready to go

    have you harvested anything yet, if not a lion probably is not the way to start.

    I'm no lion expert but I can say I wouldn't use that combination to bag a lion.

    my uncle gave me some 130 grain power shock ammo and according to what I have read, that is suitable for thin skinned game like lion

    I would at least use a ballistic tip for this trip

    Ballistic tip, like the dominion 150 grain round nose plastic tip my uncle has for his 308? I would switch ammo type for a rare hunt like this. Thank you for the suggestion

    I think you smoke weed and play on the computer maybe too much.

    Please refer to the section on lions. It is a legal-minimum so anything lower than .375 is no good I believe. Hope this helps.

    Gatehouse will be happy to hear of the .375 rule

    Re: Hunting lions

    lol I am addicted to Cabela's big game hunter, at least my mom says so. But I have been given a trip to Africa as a grad present and I would like to take the opportunity to go hunting, I am in contact with some safaris over there and I will be able to afford a lion cull hunt it seems.

    Has anyone gotten to go to africa to hunt? what are the restrictions on how much ammo I can take. Can I bring the lion back with me?
