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.
Welcome Johan, any friend of the big bore is a friend of mine !

I'm releived to see at least one true big bore amongst the list of mediums you own (tonge in cheek) !

Looking forwards to your valued contributions.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
