Hello, new member here with questions about a Merkel 140ae I just purchased with the idea of using it one day in Africa. Going to head to the double rifle forum and see what the experts have to say if I can figure out a way to post without being accused of spamming... lol :)

Thanks Everyone! I really appreciate the warm welcome! I do love Africa and visited Zambia, Zimbabwe and SA in 2014. I met some great people from Joburg while in Asia in 2013 and was invited for their wedding so made the best of it and spent a month there!

The plains south of Kruger still to this day remind me of the Alberta foothills in the fall (with less snow mind you). I am from Okotoks, just south of Calgary, ALberta. Our family has some land in the prairies and base of the Rockies that I hunt, camp and just enjoy. :)

Hi P-J. Welcome to AH from rural Idaho! I'm sure you will love it here. You came to the right place to learn all that you need to ....but I myself am ZERO help where guns and rifles are concerned. I'm sure you'll get the answers you need though. Enjoy the sight!

I would like to delete my last post on the the thread where to hunt big cape buffalo. I haven't been to that area for a few years and it may be very different now. Not fair of me to post this.
Montana hunter and avid sportsman.

PM me when you get a chance, have a few questions for you.
steve white wrote on Pheroze's profile.
Pheroze: I was intrigued by the blog on 400, 465 H&H in which you stated you were having a rifle reamed out to accomodate the larger bore. Who is doing the work for you, do they then provide cut rifling or buttoned. Will a 375 H&H rechamber to the 400 H&H. Is there much ballistic difference between it and the 404/375
