Interesting to hear that aspect of it. Hadn't seen that part in the bible about elephants and ostriches.
I watched a hunting show a few years back where they did exactly that. They shot a big bull elephant, and then the local villagers all lined up around the carcass. Men, women, children, all had some type of plate, tupperware, etc., and were hacking off and walking away with large chunks of meat.
I am not a trophy hunter, and I won't kill anything I don't eat. However, I thought that it was pretty cool that the animal was being consumed and put to use.
Anyone who shoots a sabot bullet has had the problem with loading the next round with a dirty barrel we have all struggled with it.
Between muzzleloader shots I have done some research and testing on my own to find out what works for me for the next shot. I have been using a product called bore butter and when the muzzleloader is just sitting around I leave it caked in the barrel for protection. Have also found that if I lube my sabots with bore butter they really slide nicely down the barrel....
