Leaving 35Whelen ammunition in Africa with PH
I did a search, and came up empty handed. Maybe some words of advise from the AH members and PH's.
First time I went to Africa I rented rifle, next time I plan on taking my 35 Whelen with appropriate ammunition. I have heard from guys that have went, and read on this forum about leaving the ammo for the outfitter/PH's. My question is, being that the 35 Whelen is really not that common of a caliber, would it be wise to leave the remaining ammo behind?
Would the PH be able to use it for the future or trade it to another outfitter for ammo they have rifles for on their farm? Guess, if it's not worth the hassle to them I would just bring it back, but, if they can do something with it I would like to leave it as part of the tip. The PH I used told me how much they pay for 30-06 ammo in SA. I did the math to US dollars and all I can say is "Holy Crap".
Any advise would be appreciated. Scott.
