This is more a question out of shear curiosity than of any pressing importance.

I've seen references that a number of African countries prohibit international hunters bringing rifles in "military" calibers. While recognizing the limitations of .303 Brit, I was wondering whether the caliber was old enough to no longer be regarded as a "military" caliber for the purpose of the import restriction?

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
