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.

Sold a Blaser scope mount to him. He was a pleasure to do business with.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
