    Hi,
    My name is Johan Nel. I live (and hunt) in a country on the best continent on Earth for hunting, namely South Africa. I've come across your forum searching for some point of interested and was directed here. As I am a hunter and hunt annually in South Africa (mainly for meat, not trophies) and we have a mutual interest, I decided to join this forum. I currently own one center fire rifle and am in the process of purchasing a second and am contemplating a third. I love to reload for my rifle and apart from hunting, spend time on the shooting range, burning some powder. I have been hunting for a number of years now and hope to continue doing so for many more.
    Warm Greeting to you all!
    Regards,
    JHN

    Thank you for all the welcomes.
    I currently own a 7x57mm Mauser and am in the process of buying a .303 British on a sporterised P14 action. Then I am contemplating on a .375 calibre, either H&H or Ruger. I think my inclination is toward the .375 Ruger. The shorter case and action appeals to me and the two calibres are ballistic twins. The downside is the lack of availability of .375 Ruger ammo and cases is South Africa.
