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 have been looking at an option for a 505, that doesn't break the bank (that concern my have to yield), and is more in the 50-110, or 50 Alaskan range. However not easy to find a case, other than the Weatherby, of course. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Tam Dl wrote on xausa's profile.
Hello, do you have any information on your 505 SRE cartridge. Up here in Canada, there is talk about how the various 500s may exceed the 10 000 Joule limit recently imposed. Not that they do on paper, but you never know what they may infer or claim.

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.

Good day , Do you still have .375 H&H Magnum brass available to sell?
