Welcome to AH The Grey Rider. Sounds like your hunting "Dance card" is filled up for a couple of years. What is on the menu for your planned New Zealand and African hunts? What rifles do you own and or hunt with other than your favorite 7 MM Mag?

Welcome to AH The Grey Rider. Sounds like your hunting "Dance card" is filled up for a couple of years. What is on the menu for your planned New Zealand and African hunts? What rifles do you own and or hunt with other than your favorite 7 MM Mag?

New Zealand- stag, tahr, chamois

RSA- kudu, zebra, sable, Blue wildebeest - usual PG hunt

Guns owned - nothing special.

Best trip ever- solo week-long canoeing the White Cliffs area of the Missouri River Breaks, Montana. Followup trip to rifle mule deer hunt. Can’t wait to return. Lewis and Clark were true explorers.

Favorite book- The Lord of the Flies by Sir William Golding.

Current reads - East of Eden by John Steinbeck and A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leupold.

Another great read - The Long Walk by Slavomir Rawicz

Most respected modern explorer- Ed Stafford, read “Walking the Amazon” - the guy has a pair, made of titanium.

Happy hunting, The Gray Rider.

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.
