@sandman0921 did you select the wood for the stock yourself ? I think it is just beautiful. The work on this rifle is top notch.

Wow, that is one beautiful smoke wagon in a great caliber. It deserves to be treated to an African safari with you as chaperon.

@CAustin,

I did not personally select it, but Wayne sent me pics after I told him what I wanted. May basic criteria was a lot of figure, and a darker piece of English Walnut versus some of the lighter colored varieties of English you sometimes see. I've talked with Wayne enough. as well as own a few of his rifles now, to know that he has good taste when it comes to wood.......

That's the plan. I just returned from a Moose and Caribou hunt in the Northwest Territories (for which I plan on writing a full hunt report soon), and currently have a Stone's sheep hunt booked in BC next August. God-Willing, I plan on my first African safari in 2018......

where is it going on holiday in africa ?

That I'm not quiet sure about. Probably Zimbabwe......although it's not set in stone......In the near future, I'm sure I will be looking for advice from fellow AH members regarding hunting in Africa....

Oh I am well aware of Zambia. As I told you before, I was there almost 20 years ago (non-hunting trip), and have a desire to definitely come back....

The good news is that once I start going to Africa, I plan on making several trips to Africa for various hunts over the next 5-7 years, God willing....I just have to get this "mountain hunting" bug out of my system first, which I think this latest moose hunting trip to the NWT of Canada has almost done. It was a wonderful hunt, but a lot more climbing (through those damn, infernal hummocks) than I anticipated a moose hunt to involve......I didn't realize some moose thought they were 1500 lb sheep.....o_O

Anyway, after a BC Stone's sheep hunt next year, I'll be looking for a change of pace, and a 10-14 day African safari should fit that bill very nicely. I suspect Zambia will be one of those countries I make a visit to over the next few years when I get bit by the African hunting bug.....

Nicely done. like the stock work and the attention to detail on the metal work. Hope it shoots as good and as it looks. One of my favorite calibers.

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
