I thought he was making a coherent logical observation about something that we all should think about ...

ie: range safety never stops.

That's the way I was brought up.
what year is the LandCruiser in the background...?

well, it's a split gate, so that means 74 or older. I had a 74 for a number for years, but I'm guessing that's a 72.

What will 20 rounds of .375 H&H run me in the States? Just about $50 up here in the Great White North. That's Federal soft point in 270 or 300 grain.

Looking through the Midway Website I could find these options. Not much that is cheaper than what you are paying, My local shop is generally competitive with their prices, can't always match their inventory but I can usually wait.

I scrolled through 5 pages trying to pick out .375, might have missed or duplicated some.

Did Ruger not make a mini-14 in 9mm? That'd be a cheap to feed fun gun.

Ruger mini 14. vs. mini 30? The 14 is a .223, and the 30 is a .308, right? Which is the better gun? What's a good price for a synthetic mini 14? Thanks
