    Default Hello from South Africa

    My name is Johan, and I am new to AfricaHunting.com

    I am really impressed with what I have seen on the site, and would like to convey my compliments.

    I am a big bore fan, and shoot the following open sighted calibers: 404 Jeffery (Magnum Mauser) , 500 Jeffery (Magnum Mauser), 450 Nitro Express (Ruger No1), and my pride and joy, an original Jeffery double in 450-400 3".

    I also enjoy some long range shooting with my single shot 6.5 X 284, which is a real tack driver and a pleasure to use on Springbuck hunts.

    As for hunting, I have actively hunted the last 20 years, mostly in the bushveld, with the highlight being an elephant earlier this year in Zimbabwe.

    Looking forward to share information and stories with like minded members on the forums.
