Hey Bobpuckett ,i really appreciate your responses buddy. For me going to Africa is a thing i will probably only do once and i am trying to learn as much as i can about it now. I dont know if i will go with blk powder, but it is an option to me. I am having a custom .72 built. Those are great looking animals.Is that a Sharps Carbine?bp don't leave out South Africa as well very open to black powder rifles. Here are few pics of plains game taken with BP on the East Cape.
