Welcome, my sons and I are leaving for our first African hunt in August. You were right when you said this is the place to get answers to all of your questions. Everyone here is a hunter and quite a few are reloaders. Get familiar with the site (take a look at the old posts that sound interesting and or informative) and go from there. There are a lot of Canadians on this site that have experience with big animals and large bores. I'm looking forward to seeing more from you.
