    I have found this webslte to be very helpful, so I have finally joined. My family and I have hunted and explored South Africa many times. If I can help anyone with their plans I would be happy to. I have experienced the good and the bad of exploring and hunting in South Africa. Brian

    Wow, I am recieving a warm welcome. Thank you to everyone.

    I will try posting a picture . Untitled.png 300 gr. Cutting Edge Bullet, Solid, 375 H&H. Bull was facing at 50 yds and bullet went through heart. Bull ran 45 yd. I like the bullet as well as the NorthFork Cup Point Solid which also worked very well on another Buff. Both bullets had excellent penetration.

    I wrote a Cape Buffalo hunting story that has a little humour in it, hopefully. It will be published in the next issue of African Hunting Gazette, I'm told.
    Also, I posted two taxidermist reviews just now, in the Taxidermy section of this site.

    Yikes! it sounds like it's all about me. Thanks again to everyone for the nice welcome. Brian

    Yes, I am really impressed with the NorthFork and CEB Bullets. The NorthFork soft point is very tough/hard. Often pass through on smaller animals. Have shot a Wildebeest from front to hip with the NF soft and it really worked well. Have you used the CEB Raptor? I hear it really works too.
