Do you plan on using it to hunt, and if so, what game will you be hunting?

Yes. Boar and Deer. Maybe black bear or elk.

Someday hopefully plains game in Africa.

Obviously much depends on gun accuracy and how close the game is. I understand this to be a 100 yard gun.

If it's regulated good it's a lot more than 100 yds.. A friend popped a moose at 280 yds lazered with iron sights using a Chapuis. Don't underestimate this caliber.

Mike,
Hat off to your friend. I had a bit of trouble getting my caribou at 240 yds - using a scope.

With kind regards,
Jani

Time's a wastin'! Better to settle the trade-in now before the store thinks its a done deal or carps about handling marks, restocking, etc. If that still small voice is talking to you, play it safe and check out another. Maybe it will be a tack driver. You could spend a lot on an african licence only to have a marginal shot placement lose you the dollars on a lost animal.Steve

Well, it didn't shoot any better when I tried it.

What do you guys think of this target assuming the shots don't cross? This was the one I was thinking of requesting in exchange:

http://www.gunsinternational.com/popup.cfm?id=100182080&num=4&pic=100182080-4-L.jpg

There were others that had good patterns on the regulation targets, only about 3" low of bullseye. The picture above had a better pattern but it is about 1.5" left of bullseye. Should that matter? I assumed that I can have the rear iron sight adjusted to correct for a good pattern that is putting the pattern 1.5"-2" left.

Thoughts?

It that one doesn't cross try it and see. Is it from someone that will give return privilege? If not I'd try anther one from the same place you got the one you have now.

Mike, they are from Cabelas and they have a simple exchange policy. I've ordered the one I showed you as a replacement...we'll see

If they cross, they'll go back too.

Looks a heck of a lot better than the first one. Congrats...I am without a double rifle at this time. Steve

Yeah. Cabelas is actually pretty good about these sort of things, particularly with the Sabattis since they had so many that got sent back defective early on. (dremel tool used on barrels for regulation) All the bad Sabattis were rebarreled but the reputation remains.

I'll try this one and hope it patterns well and that the regulation doesn't cross.

When I have my results I'll provide feedback and maybe an opinion on the Sabattis. Thus far, I'm impressed in many ways and frustrated in others...just for different reasons than all the pros and cons that have been spread around this forum.
