    Hello to everyone,
    Great, informative site, thank you to Admin, supporters and members for putting in all the work this entails. My plan is to hunt Cape Buffalo and some plains game in southern Africa in 2021. I wish to acquire a Win Model 70 .416 Rem Mag and build a 9.3 X 62 Mauser on a P-17 receiver. I lived in South Africa in the mid-1970's, didn't hunt (oh, for a time machine!- like they say, 'too soon old, too late smart').
    Look forward to learning a lot from here.

    Welcome & I would like to hear about your 416. I'm debating the 416s or rather which one.

    Welcome aboard DavidAZ. Keeping you and AZDave properly separated may become an issue but hopefully no feelings will be hurt if by chance someone errors and posts incorrectly. Your choice of calibers for the stated species is right on target. Looking forward to progress reports on your acquisition and building projects.

    Welcome DavidAZ. What is on your wish list - have you considered Namibia for free range plains game?

    Welcome to the forum. I just returned from your fine city earlier this week. Man it’s blazing hot out there found it a struggle get too far from the AC. Did manage to hit up the Phoenix zoo and the swimming pool late in the afternoons
