Howdy. I've been reading this forum off and on for a couple of years. Great information. Finally signed up back in September. I'm a member on a couple of brand specific forums too.

Today was an auspicious day for me. I made my first post on this forum, I booked my first African hunting trip and I sent my rifle to AHR to get some work done in preparation for the trip. All in all not a bad way to spend a Friday.

That's enough for now. Glad to meet you.

I booked a PG hunt in RSA. I used Worldwide Trophy Adventures to book the trip. This trip has been in my brain for about 30 years and Capstick is to blame. I've read and reread all his stuff several times plus Ruark and others. I finally have the time and resources to make it happen.

I sent my CZ 550 375H&H off to Wayne at AHR to have him do an upgrade package. I know I don't need a 375H&H for PG but it's a fine excuse to get some work done on a rifle I plan to use for a buffalo hunt someday. I plan to take a 9.3x62 and a 275 Rigby on my PG hunt. I own several rifles in both calibers but I'm leaning towards a pair of Ruger Africans (I also own the 6.5x55 Swede) or a pair of CZ550's. I've even considered taking a pair of #1's in the same calibers. We'll see.....

Thanks for all the kind responses.

375 is an excellent one gun solution for your hunt. I’ve shot water buff to duiker with the 375 and it has worked perfectly. Usually a heavy rifle and a light rifle in a quality case will put you close to max weight on baggage so keep that in mind for your trip. The more I travel, and drag guns through airports, one gun is looking much more enticing. Congratulations on booking your trip!

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
