An Anderson Wheeler 500 Nitro Box Lock Express Rifle, which loads a .50 caliber round that fires a 570-grain bullet at around 2,200 feet per second. This rifle is ideally used as a stopping rifle and is usually carried by professional hunters or hunters in search of African Dangerous game.

I’d definitely shoot those. They’re too cool to sit on display. I’d go for look-a-likes too.

I'd shoot the 500 NE before the 1911's, but I'd still shoot them...

As a young man, and honestly as an older man, I have always wanted to hunt Africa.... But, even when that might have been a remote possibility, the reality was quite different from what I envisioned it to be. So, I will content myself to pull down "African Rifles & Cartridgea" or "Hunter" and follow along with John Taylor and J.A. Hunter...

Read “Death in The Tall Grass” by Peter Hathaway Capstick. Good and not to mention true African hunting stories.
