Greetings,

I am new to the forum. My wife and my little girl and I will soon be moving to Zambia. We are very excited. Just joined to read stories and find out about most readily available ammo in the area so I can send a few useful firearms to our new home. Hope to perhaps make a few friends along the way.

Welcome aboard Jakob. You might wat to see about sending some reloading equipment as well. The price of good ammo in Africa will SHOCK you. There are a few AH Members from Zambia, you might try sending them a PM to get a realistic "heads up."

Hi Jakob,

Welcome to the best forum in the world.
It is possible that hand-loading in Zambia is unlawful.
Hopefully I’m wrong about that.
Anyway, two rifle calibers that you are likely to find ammunition for while you are in any African country that, hunting is common are, the .30-06 and the .375 H&H.

Good luck in your adventures,
Paul.

Velo Dog raised a point that I'm totally ignorant about. That is that reloading may be unlawful in Zambia. I'd like one of our Zambian members to explain Zambia's policy/law re. reloading.

Hi Shootist43,

Once in a long past thread, (possibly during one of my typical fits of senality) I thought a resident of Zambia / AH Forum member was lamenting a Zambian law that prohibited the re-loading of spent ammunition, by private individuals.
I had thought it was Mr. spike.t but, after using the forum search box, I found nothing on this specific question, (from anyone at all).
I’ve now done a google search and found some vagueness about a special Zambian license is required to possess live primers and there is a quota / limit on how many as well.

Perhaps if no Zambian resident chimes in, one of our computer savvy members can find the answer within the Zambian Law pages via the magic of computers.
Hopefully I’ve not tossed a net full of hagfish onto the deck for nothing.

Cheers,
Velo Dog.

Paul, hopefully one of our Zambian members can sort this out for us. I've only been to S.A. the ammo prices there were ASTRONOMICAL in my opinion.

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.
