Hello everyone!

New member here, and I've been bitten by the African safari bug! It's been a couple years building up now, but during that time and with all of the Jim Shockey and Craig Boddington safari shows I've seen on the Outdoor Network, I've finally decided to get disciplined and save up for my first African safari hopefully in about a year from now if everything goes as planned. Next week I'll be buying my first DGR (CZ 550 American Safari Magnum in .458 Lott) and I'm excited to bring it home!

I'm really starting to do my research and prep for this trip of a lifetime (cape buffalo) and so I've come to africahunting.com forums to gain as much knowledge from all of you as I possibly can. Thanks again and it's a pleasure to meet you all!

Welcome to the site sir! That 458 Lott will be a heck of a Dangerous Game rifle.

Welcome from your southeast nevets! One question for your regarding the rifle, have you much experience shooting rifles in calibers from .375H&H and up? Taking on the. .458Lott as your first big bore is not something to be done lightly.

Welcome to AH! Greetings from the great white north.
458 Lott is a serious safari starting rifle - good for you to jump right in the deep end. Please post some pix of your rifle.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
