German Hunting Rifle


A recent photograph taken on safari outside Oyster Bay, near Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. Note the khaki Purdey bush shirt and chestnut moleskin trousers from J.L. Powell. In this photo I am pictured using a 6.5x54 Mannlicher-Schoenauer hunting rifle. The long 160 grain bullets used here have a very high sectional density. The frangible soft points provide lightning quick kills on small buck, such as impala or gazelle, and on local ruffians.
