All sighting in is done with a Caldwell Lead sled.

On a new big bore I go visit a friend that has his private indoor 50 yard range at his place and we work out loads and usually burn through a few hundred rounds over the course of a weekend.

The elephants were from 15 to 50 meters. One shot brought them down.
This is exactly what I was talking about. This guy actually had shot enough to know his gun and what it would do.

A good lesson for anyone thinking of going to the Continent.

This true no matter where you hunt.

I got a Savage 99 some years back; had 6 rounds thru it back around 1960. The owner "sighted" the scope with two rounds. Then missed four shots on deer various trips hunting. And... thought it was the rifle accuracy.

Unfortunately a lot of people do that...
