Congrats on your good luck. Africa all started for me by winning a trip with a picture of Dakota and a elk on this very site.

Have a great trip

I know the minimum caliber for DG is 375. Does it matter if it's 375h&h or 375 Ruger?

Nope....both will work fine. 375 Ruger is a newer cartridge a couple hundred feet per second faster. The 375 H&H is the old reliably historic cartridge of Africa. Probably easier to find 375 H&H ammo in Africa should you need to. Your choice.

That is what I figured. Thanks

the drawing took place at our sci banquet! Way cool. We hunted with numzaan last year and had a great hunt. Saw some really nice buff's as well.

Congratulations! Of course you have now been infected with the buffalo hunting virus and will have to get "just one more":)) Seriously, enjoy the great opportunity and let all of us envious bastards know how things are going. Shoot straight and once!

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!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
