Hi everyone, here's a short clip of a lion hunt filmed for Zak Beardmore and his father, Jerry. Zak (17) put this lion down with one shot using a .375 H&H, even though he had to kneel in order to shoot through a tiny gap in the thick thorn trees. You can also hear the back-up shot from his father. The shot did hurt the tree somewhat, .... They were hunting with Stephen Tam of Tam Safaris. Great PH to work with! Here's the video:

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.
