I'm still 6 months out from my next trip to South Africa, but am getting anxious. I've been filling the time shooting, planning and gear checking. I had a productive day today at the loading bench. I finished off 120 rounds for the 8mm magnum, that I had previously primed and sized. 100 are loaded with 220 grain Swift A Frames. This is the load I will be using as it worked well on all sizes of game last trip. The other 20 are loaded with 220 Sierras. These shoot to the same point of impact and make less expensive practice ammo. I also sized, cleaned and primed 100 new nickel cases for the new to me 25-06 that will be making the trip as well. I plan on using A Frames in this rifle as well if they shoot well. I loaded up 5 rounds with 120 grain Swifts and 5 with 117 grain Hornady RN to try after the rifle is initially sighted in. I'll start working on real load development next weekend. Wheels up can't get here soon enough!
