    I've been a member of another hunting forum for years, but just discovered this site. My brother and I hunted plains game in Namibia in 2007 with Shona Adventures, and I am hoping to get to South Africa later this year for more PG hunting. Last time over I brought a CZ 500 in 9,3 X 62 with handloaded Barnes bullets. This time, I am thinking about a .338-06 with Nosler Accubonds, as DG is not on the list.

    Welcome to the best forum on the internet!

    I use a 338/06 over there and it does fine. I also use Accubonds and they perform well.

    Now I just heard that Nosler has discontinued the Accubond line but I don't know if it's true yet.

    Very good. I think I spent most of yesterday drifting around on the different forums dreaming of my next hunt. Have fun doing the same!
