Greetings all,

I am a passionate and dedicated hunter from way up north, in cold Scandinavia. As a long time safari nut, I have been reading Africa Hunting for years (thanks to everyone in the AH community for posting such good stuff). I have however not previously contributed much to the AH content myself, and only now got around to registering an account. Better late than never, right…

What really got me going now, was the idea of posting a review/story from my latest safari – an absolutely amazing Buffalo hunt with Ernest Dyason from Spear Safaris. Stay tuned for this story which I will be posting in the near future.

I am very interested not only in hunting in general, and African hunting in particular, but also in the related domains of classic firearms (especially M98-type magnum magazine rifles) and hand loading of classic calibers.

Have a great Sunday everyone,

Greetings from one northerner to another; we are likely not far off in terms of line of latitude. You say cold, I hear fun. ;) I look forward to you story.

Hello osne,

Khomas Highland Hunting Safaris of Namibia, welcomes you to the greatest forum on earth.

Also, I agree with you on the Model 98 Magnum Mauser, as well as hand loading the classic calibers.

Best Regards,
Velo Dog.

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA
