    30 years of adventures/hunting in Africa will afford a few stories to be told.

    Welcome aboard. What caliber rifles have you taken to Africa? What species of animals have you taken so far? What countries have you hunted in? What and when do you have planned for your next hunt?

    If you have been hunting in Africa for 30 years, you have hunted in many countries, shot many animals and used many different rifles.

    Especially i hunt big game, buffalos and elephants. That's why I'm more for the use of big caliber rifles. I have already mentioned a part in my first messages. The rest can be taken , i hope , from the next messages. I can not tell everything right away , i need stories for the next messages.

    From your last post I see that you have hunted some Dangerous Game and enjoy shooting larger caliber rifles. What large caliber rifles do you own? Do you reload? What is your favorite rifle and caliber? I have several larger caliber rifles the biggest being a 416 Rigby but my favorite rifle is the 6.5 x 55 Swedish Mauser.

    I have some Big Bores , but my favorite rifle is a bolt action rifle caliber 12,7x70 Schüler built to my specifications.

    I have to reload , i have no choice , many cartridges are no more or are too expensive.

    I think we still have opportunity to talk about it.

    I'm unfamiliar with the metric caliber but it is or at least seams to be very close or identical to the 500 Jeffery. I've never seen one but others have mentioned them in previous AH posts. My largest Jeffery is a 404, which pales by comparison to its' big brother. I reload for all of my rifles. If I had to buy commercial ammunition for them I doubt I'd be able to shoot very often if at all. What powder, charge weight and bullet do you use in your Schuler? (sorry there are no umlauts on my computer.)
