    This is no more a ‘hunting’ rifle than an AK47. It is however a shooting rifle.
    Quite simply hardly anyone hunts with a rifle anymore, they just shoot. I think only bow hunters are the last real hunters left, shooting a Gemsbok at 600m is not hunting.Shooting from a blind is not hunting and so on.

    I don’t know if Rob is even a hunter. I recently had a hunter who hunted with a.44 Magnum revolver. We stalked Springbok an Gemsbok up to 36 meters until he decided it was close enough. We hunted in the Northern Cape where in my opinion it is not easy to hunt these types of animals at close range. In my opinion I think that you can hunt with any weapon you like and in any way you like because with my experience even animals at 400m have the ability to see you and to make for a getaway.
