    Default Howdy from Colorado

    Hi All,
    I'm new to this forum, but have been following it for awhile.

    Not new to Africa hunting- have been twice, once with rifle, once with bow. Planning a next trip for 2013, for leopard and buffalo.

    Breaking in a new Ruger Hawkeye African, in 375 Ruger, for the next trip. Great cartridge, and very accurate in this rifle. Look forward to reading about, and exchanging notes, on everyone's Africa plans and trips!!

    Nice trophies.
    Welcome to AH.

    I wonder if they managed to cross that "alpine water buck" (ibex) of yours with the new world record Waterbuck posted here. Amazing similarity.

    Welcome! I love my .375 African. I'm sure you will as well. I've found mine shoots best with IMR 4350 about a grain off of max with 300 gr. Hornady rn. The .270 grain Hornady factory bullet is a little soft btw.
    Good luck on your next trip. Where are you going?

    I have been loading Barnes TSXes, both 270 and 300 gr, ahead of RL 15 powder. Accuracy has been excellent, especially with the 300 trainers, which have produced a couple of one- hole 100 yd. groups, and good velocity.
