  • Over did my 420 Character limit. I live out in Unalaska but pass through Anchorage fairly often would be great to grab a beer and swap stories sometime.
    Hello, You replied to my scope recommendation a while back and you recommended 400 gr swift A-frames in a 458 lott. As a big fan of the A-Frames already
    I decided to take your advice and was curious if you had any load data for them or if you bought factory rounds from swift.
    Velo Dog, I just saw that you are in AK. I was in Fairbanks from 00-03 and Kenai from 03-07. I'm sorry we did not connect up there!

    Yes, would've been fun do meet up and discuss hunting, fishing, guns and gear.
    Where do you live now ?

    We moved from Kenai to Alabama in 2006/7. I was running the nitrogen complex in North Kenai and the company transferred me to a new role in Bama. I wasn't financially ready to retire or I would have turned them down flat. We loved living in Alaska. Prior to Alaska we lived in Wyoming for 9 years so I've been a little spoiled.
    I spent most of my money on proper rifles and big game hunting, the rest I just wasted.
    Hi Velo, I am thinking about a non trophy ele hunt in Namibia. Do you have any outfitter recommendations? Thanks Ado

    Hi Ado,
    I will research my past emails, as I recall an outfit that was offering what seemed like a good elephant deal in The Caprivi awhile back.
    When I find it I will send you their contact info.
    Cheers,
    Paul Dog

    I know you like the Hornady 220gr RN in 30 cal. Midway has some blems on their site for 20 cents apiece!

    Better go get some buddy!

    Thanks Tim.
    I really appreciate this and will bag a supply for them for my PH friend who plans to be here in a few days.
    He will no doubt be very happy to bring them back to his place for culling and his personal "shooting for biltong".
    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Excellent! A man cannot have too many bullets!
    Hi Velo dog, only had a look at the site this evening.
    Sorry I did not send you a PM, most definitely. I had to look around to find you in the members list to PM you.
    I only turn 60 in September so senility isn't in it. :)

    Cheers for now.

    Us older guys have to stick together (I am 61)
    Cheers.

PM me when you get a chance, have a few questions for you.

Pheroze: I was intrigued by the blog on 400, 465 H&H in which you stated you were having a rifle reamed out to accomodate the larger bore. Who is doing the work for you, do they then provide cut rifling or buttoned. Will a 375 H&H rechamber to the 400 H&H. Is there much ballistic difference between it and the 404/375
