Huntinlabs, what load do you use in that 742? I've been using 180 Gr. Hornady Round Nose bullets and 54.7 Gr. of Win. 760 in mine for about 30 years. Never found a reason to change. I've tried many others but they weren't as accurate as my handloads.

Believe it or not I use the cheap walmart brand fusion ammo in 180 grn. so far it has killed 3 caribou and moose as well as deer when I was stationed in Missouri.

Well done on your successful hunt! I am as excited as you are with your wife's first Alaskan big game - please extend my sincere congratulations to her.
You now have some more great family photographs for the wall.

I wish it was just photographs. Kodi said she was going to shoulder mount it regardless what I had to say. So I just poneyed up and caped it correctly for her. I was talking to her last night about it and she said even though I kept saying you have to shoot him now it wasnt as exciting as your hunt with her :cry::LOL:. The kids are looking forward to hunting with "Uncle Boela" though!!

Wow, what a great hunt. I don't know how I missed it. Congrats brother, and good job on getting the kids involved. You are one lucky man to be there on the Government dime. (y)(y)

Funny story, when I was in, I applied for every base in the Mid-West, and I was sent to Kalifornia, somehow they missed the Mid. Then I volunteer for an extended long tour to Alaska, and I was sent to Homestead AFB, FL. I volunteer again for an extended long tour to Alaska, and I was sent to Sicily, Italy. On the way back from a two year there, I applied again for an extended long tour to AK, and I was sent to Shaw AFB, SC. When my time was coming up there, I was thinking about applying, and the reduction of forces hit, and I was forced out. Go figure! Not that I'm out, I guess I'll have to pay my way there.

I'd love to join you! Let's stay in touch, and maybe we can do something next year and hunt Caribou or Moose. Thanks for the invite. I'd offer you to come up to Middle Georgia, but all I can offer you is a whitetail deer or hog hunt. :unsure:

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
