Hello folks,

I'm a new member to this forum but I've been perusing here for a while. Thanks to all of you for sharing so much good information. I've hunted in the Western US and South Africa. I am partial to the older, more traditional calibers and enjoy reloading for them. I also prefer stalking or stands to long-range, stand-off shooting. My next hunt is for barren ground caribou in Alaska this coming fall (provided it is not disrupted by the pandemic). The oldest firearm in my rack is a Winchester Model 54 in 30-06 made, I believe, in 1925. My most recent purchase is a Ruger African in 275 Rigby. I am anxious to get started playing with handloads for it.

Cheers,
Matthias

Matthias5662, please add my name to the list of welcomers. What if any other rifles do you own? What have you hunted with them? Dittos on the request for hunt reports and photos of your African hunt.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
