Just joined after lurking for a while and found a ton of good information. I've never been to Africa but so far Namibia seems like the place for me!

Lifelong hunter (in my 40's now), dad had me shooting, hunting, and even handloading (I was an unusually conscientious child) at a young age.

Live in west GA, (Polk co.), and finally at a point in my life I can afford to own a little bit of my own property to hunt and fish on.

I realized I have several less common/obsolete rimmed cartridges that I most often take into the field, hence the username (I'm not a drummer!)

Looking forward to contributing whatever I have learned so far!
Welcome to the posting side.

Welcome to AH! Your gateway to paradise (or hell if you start buying .375 and up rifles!). Have fun!
I've been tempted by a few big bores lately!

I think my Ruger #1 in 9.3x74R will be my perfect PG companion though. I bought it on a whim when CDNN was blowing them out for $600. After a little fore end and safety switch modification, it drives tacks and flings empties clear of the rifle. I must now go to Africa so I can use it properly!

Nice! But, it won’t stop there, trust me. The enablers here will cajole you into a .375 and it won’t stop until your into a .45 something . There’s guys on here with Ruger #1s that can’t remember what a .375 is! Get out now while you can! Or not! The choice is yours grasshopper? Ha! Ha! Ha!

Hello neighbor! If you're a reloader, I bet we both have stuff we don't use much that we could trade in these times of scarcity!

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
