Been there twice, no real need to go there again. Nothing there that I cant get somewhere else with less hassle.

In Zim's defense, the whites, and the rural matabele and shona are really great people. It's the bureaucracy that is nothing short of bizarre and the root cause of all frustration. No government attempt is made to be friendly to business, tourism or the local people.

I suspect (but not positive) that the Zimbabwean PH has the hardest PH job in Africa. They get involved in so much bureaucracy, logistics and fees all for the privilege to work with clients in the bush and be taxed.

It seems that the entire nation has a very hard life right now.

Don't get me wrong, I'm thoroughly annoyed by the process of going to Zim but I do love BEING IN Zim.

Lufthansa, Air France, British Air and all the other EU members have a present sanction against bringing firearms into Zimbabwe so there is a no-go there.
its no problem to check out in Joburg and check in to Zimb.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
