    Well Louis has lined up a great addition to our hunt with the 4 of us going to Kalahari Desert to bag 3 full maned lions, then returning to his lodge to finish off with Plains and couple of Capes. Going to be on DVD so hopefully get to post up a link of a great hunt it all goes as planned.

    A side note not sure Louis can find us any game :):)but he sure can get our hopes up with lots of great choices.

    NOT worried really I just told him I am not leaving without my wish list filled so back to the reloading bench to decide what bullets I want to use in the 375 HH.

    Thanks to AH for having such a great site to deal with the outfitters direct even 7000 miles away lol, the money I saved, Louis spent by showing me pics of them big ole Black Mane Lions

    To be continued

    Take some duct tape along and give it three or four wraps around the muzzle brake.

    Tell him its for fire suppression; Fire hazard it too high that time of year.
