    After all the comments feeling better and better about my 3006. Figure to try several of the brands everyone recommends and see what shoots best.
    I never looked at freedom munitions rifle ammo....have done a good bit of business with them for 9mm and 45 pistol ammo.

    Full disclosure- the CEO is a friend of mine and Tagged Out is their line of premium ammo. I tried it at his request and it shot lights out in my rifle. Accubonds are great bullets so I decided to take it on safari. I hear several of our photos may be used in their next marketing campaign. Nevertheless, I wouldn't recommend it if it hadn't worked great. IMG_0443.JPG

    I believe you. I think I will order a couple boxes to see how it shoots. Tell your buddy a friend and I have burned several thousand rounds of 9 in practice and have zero complaints.

    You’ve received lots of excellent info here. I’d first like to repeat sticks, sticks, sticks! Practice, practice, practice.
    Use tough premium ammo that shoots best in your guns.
    Finally, print out the pictures on here of all the game you want to shoot and memorize where to hit them. This is critical. If you don’t hit them in the right place, it doesn’t matter what you’re using. Dr Kevin RobertsonS pocket book “Perfect Shot” is also very handy (see SafariPress). But Jerome here at AH has done an excellent job of making pictures for free!

    Your going to get addicted, so just sit back and enjoy every minute of your planning, practicing and finally your trip!

    Welcome! Lived in AR for years, beautiful place. Macks Sporting Goods, Duck Calling Contest, good times all around. Interesting how they changed the non resident duck hunting permits this year...not sure how that will end up.

    Hi Mike, welcome to AH. Just got back from 12 days in Namibia. At I am no expert in firearms, I used a 300 Win Mag and it worked well for me. Have a great hunt.

    Welcome to AH! I'd recommend the 180 TTSX bullet.

    What’s your opinion of the 27O Winchester on the above game?

    Welcome glad to have you. I just returned form SA where I took several medium sized PG with my 270 WSM using 140 gr accubonds no issues at all. But if I had to do it again I would go with 150 noslers.
