My name is Johan, and I am new to AfricaHunting.com

I am really impressed with what I have seen on the site, and would like to convey my compliments.

I am a big bore fan, and shoot the following open sighted calibers: 404 Jeffery (Magnum Mauser) , 500 Jeffery (Magnum Mauser), 450 Nitro Express (Ruger No1), and my pride and joy, an original Jeffery double in 450-400 3".

I also enjoy some long range shooting with my single shot 6.5 X 284, which is a real tack driver and a pleasure to use on Springbuck hunts.

As for hunting, I have actively hunted the last 20 years, mostly in the bushveld, with the highlight being an elephant earlier this year in Zimbabwe.

Looking forward to share information and stories with like minded members on the forums.

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
