    Welcome aboard Idaholandho. What African animals are you interested in taking? What caliber rifles will you be using? BTW that Lab. looks like a happy camper!!

    Thank you. My list as a first timer is Kudu, Gemsbok, Zebra, Impala and possibly an Ostrich if I can find a reputable cobbler before hand.
    As far as .cals, I went from 300 win mag to a 6.5 creedmore to possibly a 7mm and back to the win mag. I have several rifles to choose from and shoot them all well. I am somewhat hellbent on the 6.5 and suspect if I catch to much hell here I will take the .300 wm

    Welcome! I spent a lot of time, as a kid, in northern Idaho. Beautiful country! Good luck with your African safari planing.

    Idaholandho, I reload my 6.5 x 55 Swede to within 50 FPS of your 6.5 Creedmore. If I were you, I'd take both the 300 WM and the Creedmore. Some of the animals you've listed deserve a little more horsepower. That being said there are plenty of smaller animals more deserving of the Creedmore. On my first safari I took a 35 Whelen and my 6.5 Swede. Both served me very well.
