Hi., Baz from Cairns Australia, looking forward to reading the members Big Game Hunting stories and about there big bore and double rifles.

I had a 460 Weatherby Magnum for 25 years, and used it on everything from feral cats to scrub bulls.
I have just purchased a Butch Searcy 500 nitro express double, will be hunting buffalo in September in Australia, and Africa in 2019 for cape buff.

Welcome aboard Baz 500. This is the best site on the net for hunters, especially those that harbor the thoughts of doing so in Africa. That new double of yours has Buffalo "written all over it." I hope you get to christen it soon.

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.
