This is the best thing you can do, buy this book, it is a great reference source for any dangerous game rifle you will ever use...it has loads and loads of reloading data ..even has a whole chapter on the re-loading of the Martini Henry .577/450..

This book is also available on Outdoor Visions website for $39.95, a great deal!

Gert I just ordered both books. Pierre's first book is available at Outdoor Visions, his second book was available from Safari Press. I'm hoping they are all that you say they are.:rolleyes::rolleyes:

I have searched and made inquiries with a couple bullet manufacturers but have found no data for these bullet weights in the .404 Jeffery.

Does anyone have some data or a source for the same?

Thanks for any help.

Mike

Mike; I was looking for 404 loads and phoned Barnes Bullets. The guy I talked to emailed me several loads for 400 g TSX. If you shoot Barnes bullets, give them a call.

I received the first book on Tuesday the second one earlier this morning. I opened both after lunch. I'd have to agree they are a significant source of information and in a class of their own. Glad you "talked" me into buying them.

Many thanks everyone for the suggestions! I will look on Amazon for the two books Gert cited.

EDIT: Amazon seems to have only the Kindle version of the Dangerous Game Cartridges book.

Members, here is a reply from Pierre van der Walt :

Gert


Hope you are well. You can tell the guys on African Hunting.com that African Dangerous Game Cartridges is ONLY available from Outdoor Visions hunting videos ([http://www.outdoorvisions.com) ]www.outdoorvisions.com) in the USA. Limited numbers available and when out of print I do not plan to ever reprint. It costs too much. Outdoor Visions does NOT ship to South Africa because the books almost always go missing and Outdoor Visions cannot be expected to cover the cost of replacement as a consequence of the ur corrupt, thieving, useless Post Office workers. The only way to get it into South Africa is for Outdoor Visions to mail it to a US or European address and somebody to physically bring it to South Africa.


African Medium Game Cartridges is available from Safari Press in the USA and from Safari Outdoor in South Africa.


Regards

Pierre

I was able to order both books from US sources cited. The Dangerous Game Cartridges book was about $40 from Outdoor Visions. Thanks to Gert and Shootist for their help.

May I suggest you take a look at Ammo guide .com and if you do not have the African Dangerous Game Cartridges - Pierre van der Walt book..buy it, it is a great source for re-loading big bore calibers

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
