Took my 12 year old son on his first safari and chose L'wyk Jansen Van Vuuren and his Leopard Legend Safari outfit outside Outjo, Namibia. L'wyk's wife picked us up at the Windhoek airport and we made the 5 hour drive with great food and a couple of stops to site see along the way. We hired Reinhardt Bronner as a camera man (because in my opinion you have to film safaris!!) of reinhardtBproductions.com and he was a joy to be around. Reinhardt was great on the spoor as well as visiting around the fire and hanging out with my son. L'wyk's camp is beautiful and first class with great service. We were in camp for a seven day plainsgame and were able to get all of the trophies that we wanted.... 2 great Kudu (both over 50"), 2 nice Gemsbok, a very nice Springbok, Steenbuck, Hartmann Zebra and my son shot a jackal at 165 yards (I think this was his favorite of the animals he killed)!!! L'wyk is an amazing PH and tracker, we tested him a couple times on the tracking part..... Amazing animals and place, like hunting with family.
This was my 3rd safari and I can't recommend Leopard Legend enough. Great hunt and can't wait to hunt with L'wyk again.

I have been looking at an option for a 505, that doesn't break the bank (that concern my have to yield), and is more in the 50-110, or 50 Alaskan range. However not easy to find a case, other than the Weatherby, of course. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Tam Dl wrote on xausa's profile.
Hello, do you have any information on your 505 SRE cartridge. Up here in Canada, there is talk about how the various 500s may exceed the 10 000 Joule limit recently imposed. Not that they do on paper, but you never know what they may infer or claim.

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.

Good day , Do you still have .375 H&H Magnum brass available to sell?
