Hello. Been on the site as an anonymous visitor many many times. Have learned a lot from many of you. Thank you for sharing your experience (always), your humor (often), your wisdom (more often than not), your passion (no, really?) and your patience (sometimes).
Been hunting for 40+ years in Europe and US/Canada. Experienced with Chamois (European mountain goat), Roe Deer (European deer), Sanglier (wild boar), Whitetail Deer, Black Bear, Moose, etc. Never been to Africa. Was poised to do it 20 years ago but had to send 5 kids through college; 'nough said, right? My Jules Burry .450 #2 ended up killing tuition bills instead of buffalo...
Out of that stage of life now, and planning to go this year for a cow buffalo hunt and some cull plains game. All I can afford at the time...
Shooting a Mauser 66 (telescopic action predecessor to the Blaser) in .458 Lott / Docter Sight with A Square Dead Tough and Monolithic Solids left over from 20 years ago, for what stomps; a CZ 550 in .416 Rigby / S&B 1.25-4x20 30 mm with A Frames for what bites; a Weatherby .340 / Zeiss 2.5-10x48 30 mm and a Winchester Classic 70 in .300 wby / S&B 1.5-6x42 30 mm with Nosler Partitions for the rest.
Looking forward to keep learning; maybe sharing a few things learned here and there, from the French Alps to Newfoundland and British Columbia, to America; and always continuing dreaming of THAT day.
Thank you all in advance.
Welcome to the forum. If you always thought that hunting in Africa was out of your league, have a look at our web site. We offer old style, free range plains game hunting at affordable rates.

Sold a Blaser scope mount to him. He was a pleasure to do business with.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
