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.

Thank you all for the kind words, this is a great forum. I have read a ton of great information on AH, much of which I could find nowhere else. I am thinking South Africa targeting plains game will be my 1st Safari, with the primary target being a Kudu. I think I will leave my 6.5 Creedmoor home to avoid the stress of traveling with a rifle. I would rather use the gun my PH recommends (even though I think a well placed shot from the 6.5 CM would do the job, better safe than sorry).

@MrCreedmoor
Mate have a look at Namibia I think you will be surprised at the prices. Kohmas is reputedly a great out fit along with all others on this site.
I hunted with Osombahe Nord safaris run and owned by Harold and Liezel and couldn't fault a thing.

Namibia is a great place to look at for plains game and is well known for great hunting. If you have any question about Namibia hunting let me know. Would be more than welcome to assist.

Welcome to the site MrCreedmore
I have a 260 Rem which is very similar to the 6,5 Creedmore.
It is one of my most accurate rifles (Sako) and works perfectly on smaller antelope like impala, springbuck, blesbuck, warthog, etc. I have used it on black wildebeest and red hartebeest with 140 grain bullets. It might still work on gemsbok and kudu size animals provided you place the shot perfect but I think it will be too light for the bigger plains game animals like blue wildebeest, zebra, eland, etc.
We can help you with free range hunting on very large privately owned ranches in the Kalahari.
E-mail us for the latest price list.
Sincerely
Hans de Klerk

Hello and Welcome. Booking a safari in Africa will be one of the greatest adventures you can undertake, one that you will remember for the rest of your life. As I understand it, it seems as if you are from Wisconsin. Considering I am in Wisconsin too, I would take pleasure in walking you through the process. You can get more information on our company at www.bosssafaris.com. Please send me an email (wayne@bosssafaris.com) and we can arrange a time to meet in person. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
