Welcome to AH, congrats on booking your "FIRST" safari. two years might seem like a long time to plan but I can assure you the time goes quickly as there is lots to do and learn, and you picked a great place to do that.
Thank y’all very much for the kind words. So much to do. I have been researching a DG rifle. Coming close to narrowing it to what I want. I’m thinking .416 Remington Magnum. I also like a two position safety. I’m leaning toward Sako at this time but quite hard to find. Very glad I have the 18 months or so to keep searching/researching.

I've just joined the site. I know I have a lot to learn. My first trip is booked: going to Zimbabwe in July 2022 for buffalo, etc. Looking forward to learning from all of you. Thank you for allowing me to join.

Welcome aboard JHT. I'm looking forward to the "lickin" Bama is going to put on Notre Dame. I recently purchased a Win. Mod. 70 in 416 Remington Mag. Yesterday I got the last piece of the reloading gear (The Complete reloading Manual for the 416 Rem. Magnum) I need to start working up a load for it. Several other AH members have used the 416 Remington Mag. for Buffalo. You can use the AH Search feature to look up their stories.

Thank you. Choctaw County. Graduate of Alabama.

I hunt regularly with my best friend and hunting buddy around Aliceville, AL. His whole family are big Tide alum and fans. I of course went to UTK, but still tolerate their obnoxious worship of AL because the hunting trips are too much fun. A good friend of ours from Baton Rouge, LA, and an LSU fan came to camp a few years ago. Driving up the local hwy, we told him to turn right at the white barn with the big red A painted on it. When he got to camp he noted that there were 25 white barns with red A’s painted on them on that 30 miles of hwy. I suspect he was not joking.

I suspect I need to update. Although I am still booked for 2022, thanks to this forum, I was able to secure a bonus, June 2021, DG hunt in Zim near Hwange. Although Delta has cancelled, so long as United flys, I’ll be there without interruption.
It’s hard to believe, save for new socks, I have been able to secure all the new gear I should need. Looking back, I was quite naïve in the beginning. Thank you for all your help, advice, opportunity and the money you have saved me.

“It’s a Southern Thang!” In the SE part of the US you are known by your allegiance toward a SEC team rather than your state of residence !

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.
