    Wow hard to think in 2 weeks I be flying south for a hunt with Louis, our merry gang of 4 are super excited to be going and cannot wait to climb aboard SAA for the short flight :cool::cool: Only 18 hours from Dulles

    Got my Remington 700 in 280 IMP driving tacs with 150 grain TTSX barnes & 160 grain accubonds, new brass even says 280 IMP to match the barrel, then the 375 H&H is also ready with 300 grain Swift A frames & Barnes 250 grain TTSX as well. So Lion & Plains will be on the menu l:cool:
