What you write sounds very reasonable and good. What do you think about this combo, 9.3x62 and 404 jeffrey or any other larger caliber, but want to be able to use the larger one for wild boar, bear or similar. 500 or in that size is probably not needed.

Yes to the 404 Jeffery, but the 9.3x62, no. The 9.3 is not legal for hunting many species in Africa so a 9.3 and a .243 are effectively the same as far as what you are permitted to hunt.

Then I will get a Bolt rifle in 375 for all other game except the big five. There will probably be a Hartmann or Waffen Jung in Bolt 375. So I'll check for a 404 jeff for the big game. I can use 375 for all game, right? What is not allowed to use 9.3 in addition to the big five?

You can hunt DG with the 9.3x74R and 9.3x62mm in many popular DG destinations in southern africa.....superb caliber

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.
