    I have read many articles from this sight, but just recently joined. I had the privilege of hunting south Africa a couple of years ago. Of course hardly a day goes by that I don't dream of returning. I am an avid reloader and I am particularly fond of my 35 whelen.

    Jbg, welcome to AH! I’ve always wanted a 35 Whelen ever since, as a kid, reading Townsend Whelen’s articles about it and his survival articles.
    Looking forward to your participation!
    If you’re so inclined, a short write up and pictures of your hunt would be enjoyable.

    Welcome aboard Jbg. I share your love of the 35 Whelen. Mine has been to Africa twice. Do you reload your ammo? If so, how about sharing your recipe? I'm getting 2730 FPS pushing a 225 Gr. Barnes TSX. FYI writing up a story about your previous African hunt along with photos would be a good thing.
