    Hi everyone I am new to the whole african game I just aquired a set of cape buffalo horns at a tag sale I'm thinking they are pretty old I ran some quick mesurments on them and I was getting a 44" spread and an approx. SCI score of 111. does this sound like a good set to anyone that knows about them?
