    Another Collared Named Lion (FRISK) killed

    @Alexandro Faria You have certainly broken the civil discourse that is usual here. That statement is blatantly xenophobic and racist. Hate much?

    Mugabe Must Go - By Ken Yamamoto

    Mugabe unfortunately is going to have to die before anything changes in Zimbabwe. They may prop up his corpse for a while to sort out the politics. He's an institution. There will probably be a great unraveling, upheaval/power struggle when he leaves the corrupt mess that is the Zimbabwe government.

    Rare Winchester Model 70 Custom African Express .416 Rem Mag

    Very nice and well maintained. Love that slight "tiger stipe" of the walnut on the right hand side of the stock.

    Range Report for NEW TO ME .375 H&H Magnum

    Yeah, I check some recoil tables on 7 1/2 lb rifles and 30-06 180 grain bullets at 2700 gos had 20.3 ft lbs . A 375 H&H with 300 grain bullet at 2550 fps had 37.3 ft-lbs (1.837 times ) . I've considered the ole '06 to be upper limits of shooting a whole box tolerably on the range. Chuck Hawks...

    Range Report for NEW TO ME .375 H&H Magnum

    My buddy has an AR-30 300 Win Mag we take out to a 600 yard range which has a muzzle brake and we have never got a complaint. We set up at a slot as far away as possible from other shooters. If we set up next to someone we talk with them and usually everyone is fine with it. Yeah just plopping...

    New To Reloading Need Beginner Help

    +1 That @375 Ruger Fan . Putting a fast burning pistol or shotgun powder into a magnum rifle cartridge can be mortal.

    GOMER ( Get Out of My Emergency Room) as I remember the term. It's from a classic text about one man's medical internship in Boston, MA, USA. IIRC

    How Did You Get Started Become Interested In Reloading

    Maybe Jim, but one thing factory ammo will never have is the sweat from your own palms and the satisfaction of having something you created work for you. That's what I like about it more than anything. It's a labor of love.

    That elk was my first animal with my own handload. The outfitter told me to show up with 180 grain bullets, but I like the bullets on the heavy side so I went with the Berger 190's. Thinking I may work up a load with their 210 gr VLD Hunting when I go to Wyoming this year. I got an Elk tag again...

    You and me both Giz. The elk in my avatar was harvested with my personal load 300 WSM, Norma Brass, 190gr Berger VLD Hunting Bullet, 61.2 gr W760 with Winchester WLRM primers. Like you I weigh every round to the tenth of a grain.

    How Did You Get Started Become Interested In Reloading

    I started reloading because I bought a Ruger No.1, .257 Roberts and could NOT find any ammo other than the box I bought with the rifle. Don't think that I'm saving a whole lot of money as expensive as the equipment, brass and bullets are. But the consistency and accuracy is the best selling...

    @CAustin I live west of Little Rock along the eastern edge of the Ouachita Mountains in rural Perry County. Great whitetail hunting down in Monticello for sure.

    Thank you, Marius. Looking at potentially 2018 or so. Hoping that the Big Cat issue with USFW gets sorted out for the better in between now and then.
