Good day to all.
Even though I read several forums this is the first time I’ve ever written something, so crossing fingers this post is in the correct place??

I am a avid hunter/shooter/reloader from sunny South Africa. I guided photographic safaris throughout South and East Africa for 10 years and conducted “Biltong” hunts for locals for a couple of years. For the last few years I have been in the poultry industry and work all over the world.
I have a great love for all firearms especially single shot rifles. My latest acquisition (a Ruger no 1 in 450-400NE) actually got me to sign up on the forum. I always appreciate learning from others and look forward to sharing the little I know.
Thanks for the acceptance.
Radi

Thanks 375 Ruger Fan.
I’m sure we will chat in the future. My brother just bought a Ruger Alaskan in 375 Ruger and as I am the designated “reloader” for the family I’m sure I’ll be asking some load advice soon.

Welcome to AH sir! I am a Ruger #1 fan. I have the Ruger #1 in 300Winmag, 375 H&H and 458 Lott. They are great hunting rifles.

Good day Sir.
I love my Ruger #1 They are quite scarce and expensive here in South Africa compared to other rifles. It took me years to get my hands on mine! I’m the proud owner of a 375H&H and a 45-70 Govt and am busy trying to convince my brother to sell me his two #1’s a 7mm Rem Mag and 450-400 3’
You are absolutely right they are GREAT hunting rifles!! The only problem I have is since I got the 375 H&H all my other rifles are gathering a bit of dust!

Good day Brickburn.
At the moment I’m in Saudi Arabia on a work contract and am doing everything on my phone. I am that “one kid left behind” when it comes to technology. I will definitely give it a go to load some pictures. Hope it works

Sorry for the double pics! Got a bit confused there for a while. These were all taken on photographic safaris. I will try to get and load some of my hunting pics too.
