Hello, I just sold a rifle to a nice guy from Tennessee and he recommended africahunting.com. I have been hanging around over on another forum for a few years. I host a big bore match yearly in Hamilton, MT and help RO the Safari Rifle shoot in Libby, MT. Can't say that I hunt Africa, but I can fantasize about it. The 416 Taylor, 458 AccRel and 505 Gibbs have been fun.

Welcome from a fellow new guy from MT. I'm just east of Missoula. I would be very interested in info on the big bore match.

Hey Dan, I am sure I met you at the big bore shoot in 2017. I live in Corvallis. Welcome, and let’s start planning a trip!

Welcome Dan416 to AH! You NEED to start your plan to get to Africa for your own grand adventure! You will only regret it if you don’t go.

Welcome aboard Dan416. You will quickly discover that being on AH feels as comfortable as an old pair of slippers. There are lots of big bore aficionados on AH that share your love of the 4 + calibers. What have you hunted with your big guns? Do you reload? Rest assured that you will be getting lots of encouragement to put your rifles to better use than punching paper.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
