    Recommend a Bullet for Me?

    Hopefully you will be shooting everything from duiker and impala, up to wildebeast , zebra and eland. That is a wide range of size and toughness to contend with. I would opt for 180 grains, (heavy for caliber) and a round nose soft bullet design. I would avoid a ballistic tip type bullet because...

    I met these people on a visit to Zimbabwe in 1995 and 1997. They had a thriving operation, and yes, the Mugabe regime stole it. My heart goes out to them.

    Guest house recommendations in Windhoek

    As long as you will be there overnight I might recommend Luigi's as a great place to get a meal.The fish was great when I was last there. Also if you have not made it by Joe's Beer House on an earlier trip, it is a must visit as well.

I think that losing a bow in route is more likely than having a...
