Hey from Texas, goin to South Africa this august with my son, our first trip there and we are really excited. Hope to gain some insight and helpful info, have been lookin at the dip and ship expenses and it seems really confusing. Have already learned quite a bit just from reading some of the posts, and some questions I need to ask outfitter.

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.
