HI every one I am new here and it looks to be a great place to do some good reading and searching for hunting info. I hope to go to Africa to hunt someday. I have been working at my job at a trucking company here in northern Colo. for going on 35 years now and I guess I will be here for a while yet. I have a machine shop at home and do some rifle building part time for the last 20 years. Also do some motor cycle riding in the summer also but my main hobby is guns,hunting,target shooting and machine work.Anyway thanks for the warm welcome.

Welcome, It sounds like you are going to fit right in at AH. The more time you spend the sooner "someday" will come. What rifles have you built? What do you do with them?

Thanks for the warm welcome Gents. I have chambered hundreds or rifle's over the years from 20 cal to 375 ruger mostly benchrest and varmint rifles. But I have done 308 win 30-06, all the standard big game magnums in North America. I am in the process of buying some large cal reamers like 416 rem,458 lott,405win,375 wby,450ack mag,300H&H,375H&H and some others.

I believe that the labour laws in most civilized jurisdictions recognize the need for at least one trip to Africa every 35 years....Best be on your way.

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.
