    Hi Guys,

    Sorry I`ve not been around for a while!

    Has anyone ever hunted Argentina?? I`ve been invited to hunt a Mouflon hybrid ram and some wingshooting for a few days in August.

    I will be taking my .375 and using whatever bullets I can find, not sure of availability out there?

    If anyone`s got any tips for me on the hunting style or just the travel there I would appreciate it.

    All the best,
    Charly

    Thanks Monish,

    I certainly let you know how it goes. As it`s an invite I don`t want to pester the guy with too many questions so will do some digging around on the net. Not sure if the .375 is overkill for a sheep but if I run into a big buff on the hunt I want to be prepared!

    Hi Charly,

    What make is your .375 H&H, ?? Its a ample & a perfect caliber for all the hunting across the globe, for sheep take 235 grain loads, and if you encounter a buff give it a 300 solid or a silver tip treatment.

    Happy hunting !!!!

    The rifle is a Remmy 700 stainless/synthetic, I don`t get a lot of chance to practice with it in the UK due to the fact I`m only allowed to shoot at government approved ranges and use solids only. The powers that be deem this rifle too powerful for hunting in my region. I will get a few shots in off sticks before I go but I find it quite manageable despite it being a relatively light rifle. I have used 300`s and 270`s through it and found they group very well at 150 yrds so should be fine to about 250 for hunting purposes. I will have to purchase my ammo on arrival so I hope there are some 235 softs available...

    Cheers,
    Charly

    Charly,

    Thats a fine rifle you possess . Its a irony you cant test fire your rifles elsewhere except the govt. ranges .235 grainers should be available there .
    Have a great hunt and take some record class heads.

    Happy Hunting

    Baydog,

    To tell the truth the hunt didn`t happen in the end, I just had too many bookings in the UK to get away. The offer is still open for me so if I ever find a 10 day opening in my diary I will be straight out there! I have also sold the .375 in favour of a .404

    However I have just returned from and Ibex hunt in Spain, what a great place to hunt - great people too...

    Charly

    Be prepared for a $140 tax on US citizens once you get off the plane...other than that it's a great destination

    Hopefully don't have to worry about that, I'm Canadian. Is it specific to US citizens?

    I wanted to fish Dorado down there but it's big $$$$$$$$$ for most of the places I've checked out so far. If anyone knows of a place to fish for a reasonable price let me know. (2-3 day add on to a business trip).
