Hi there,
just found this forum and been reading the reloading section with great interest!

I'm a keen reloader and in fact it forms part of my current career! Having no experience of hunting in Africa I hope to be able to ask a few questions regarding loads for Dangerous game loads.....

My hunting to date has all been in the UK. I hunt about twice a week for deer near where I live.

all the best
Mike

Mike, welcome to the AH forum! So what DG cartridge are you interested in reloading?

Welcome aboard Brit Mike. Hunting is hunting the world over, all "Nimrods" share the same sense of adventure regardless of the game. What caliber rifles do you own and reload for? Have you taken a Red Stag yet? If so what caliber did you use? What were your thoughts about the performance of that caliber? My son and I are going after red Stag in Argentina in March. We'll be renting the Outfitter's M 77 Ruger(s) in 300 Win Mag.

Welcome to AH Brit Mike. There might be one or two guys on this forum that reload DG cartridges.
In reality, as I’m sure you’ve seen, a lot of great info on guns, hunting and reloading on this site and everyone willing to answer your questions.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
