First bull from today - proper Old Man Nganabbarru - above the culling spring. My wife and I heard a little noise above us, so I scrambled up the bank and shot him quartering-on at about thirty metres. He dashed about forty metres and tipped-over dead. 475 grain CEB Safari Raptor doing 2330fps (need to keep developing the load to waltz a little faster).

Something like this bull exactly what I would like to take next year. I'll take age and that mass over length. I plan on using 50 cal 450 gr CEB bullets as well.

Hey, John J! You’re in for an awesome time at Carmor Plains! And being coastal with better nutrition year-round you’ll see some absolute monsters! That .500MDM will be devastating on them.

That's great to hear. I'm thinking about taking my 2 kids with me. They will be 15 and 13 by then. I think we will have a great time. I need to get intouch with the outfitter and check pricing maybe throw in some pigs for the kids. I love these AU posts and pics. Keep them coming.

Some loading today with my next little box of 475 grain CEB Safari Raptor: 103 grains of 2208 gives 2363fps. 105 grains of 2208 gives 2415fps.

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.
