On a recent Cape Buffalo/PG hunt with Pawprint Safaris in South Africa, I took a nice buffalo with my Winchester 70, 416 Rem Mag and Swift A Frame bullets. The load drove the 400 grain bullets to around 2325fps. It was a frontal shot at approximately 75 yards. This load is very mild in my rifle, but did a great job! I also took 7 more animals with my Kimber 375 H&H with factory Federal Premium 300 grain Swift A Frame ammo. All one shot kills, except for the Waterbuck, which I gave an insurance shot, just before he was going down. These bullets gave wonderful results, and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Also a huge thanks to Pawprint Safaris for a great hunt!

Can't complain about those results.

Excellent bullet performance on one fine buffalo! I really like those deep curls!
All very good looking trophies! That impala looks exceptional! Very handsome!
Congratulations! I guess you’re a little sad to be back?

I have used the Swift A-Frames for PG in 338win mag, 257R, 257W and 30-06 all with excellent results and nice bullet expansion.

Can’t wait to try my 180 gr A-Frames out of 300wsm in Namibia 2020.

Great hunt, thanks for the report.

Man, you got some nice trophies. Congrats on a very successful hunt. That Toy looks like it's loaded down pretty good. So when are you going back, to Africa, not work? :D

Nice. Congratulations on your hunt. I'm sure that you're planning on an encore appearance.
I'm also a 416 Remington fan and enjoy it. Though decidingly over gunned, I just shot two woodchucks with it, just to stay safari ready.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
