Hey Eric. Gotta say you had a great trip. Some really great trophies there. It would of been hard to of hoped for any better. Gotta say the Sable is a good looking animal. Those Bushbucks are really nice. I'd shoot one like that in a heartbeat. Congrats on the good shooting. Bruce

Hey Eric, I think you were born with a lucky horseshoe around your neck! Great report, and once again you got some super animals, congratulations.

I see the Swift A Frame put a huge hole through him. Next time I'm hunting with Barnes!
I shot my Klipspringer at 314 yards with a 168 grain Barnes TTSX from my .300 Weatherby. The bullet hit about in the same place as yours did, and I think the results were also similar.

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.
