Hello to everyone. I'm new to the group. Just wanted to start off and say thankyou for allowing me to become a member and hope I can learn from here and gather up info for a future Safari. I'm 50 years old and I have been hunting for over 35 years. My favorite round is the 6.5 Creedmoor. I have hunted white tail deer, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, and elk. My dream is a SA Safari plains game free range hunt.

Welcome to the forum! The 6.5 CM works well in NA and my son used it to take plains game in Namibia. I shot a bull elk last year with that caliber.
I’m next door to you in MN.
What are you most interested to hunt in Africa?

Welcome aboard MrCreedmore, I'm with you 100% on the use and versatility of the 6.5 caliber. However I prefer the old 6.5 x 55 Swedish Mauser fed with properly loaded ammunition. But then we all have our favorites don't we. AH is a wonderful site where hunters from all over the world share their experiences and expertise. Stick around a while and we'll have you hunting Africa much sooner than you thought possible.

Hello MrCreedmoor,

Khomas Highland Hunting Safaris of Namibia, welcomes you to the greatest forum on earth.

Shopping around for just the perfect Safari company is a good part of the fun.

Most of 6.5’s are very fine cartridges that tend to punch a bit above their weight class.
Yours truly has taken 2 Polynesian wild boars with the 6.5 Creedmoor and one mule deer with the 6.5x55 calibers.
It would be difficult to find a better springbok, etc. caliber.
These might be a bit light for elk sized kudu etc.
But I would wager that with a well placed Swift A-Frame bullet, your Creedmoor would work pretty well on kudu.

Kind Regards,
Velo Dog.

Welcome to AH Mr Creedmoor. You have come to the right place for info on hunting Africa. There are outfitters, PH’s and hunters with double digit safaris under their belt more than willing to answer your questions.

@ MrCreedmoor
Welcome to a great forum mate. I hope you have the same mad humor as the other mad fella from Wisconsin. You can find him @RandyF. Really knowledgeable bloke and has hunted Africa already. Just don't mention fitbits to him as he is still recovering from his injuries when it broke. You can read about it on the forum but be seated when you do as you will be laughing so much.
Welcome again
Bob

Welcome to AH from another Wisconsin member!
@RandyF
Take it easy on the poor young fella Randy. Even tho he has a crudmore you have to play nicely. I am sure he would love to read your hunt review. With Wisconsin being such an itty bitty state you're probably close to being neighbors.

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
