Is it true the reload rate of the elephant is 1/2 of the hippo? Or have I mistaken it for the late war period?
Nice job. Keep up the good work.

You're thinking of the rifles chambered for Indian Elephants.
The larger rifles chambered for African Elephants have an even slower reload rate.
Although, I have heard rumors of an automatic (10 rounds) being developed somewhere on a secret base in Antarctica.

H. Rider Haggard who wrote the Quatermain series describes his hero's big bore weapon as an Express 500. Loved it. Q and pals to impress a local tribe, on approach, shot up some hippos to impress everybody. Except those were sacred hippos! Dang.
