    Hi Folks, My name is Ronald Nel, and live in Pretoria.

    I am a passionate hunter, with an appetite for adrenalin ,but with limited experience of hunting the dangerous stuff. I reload around 25 calibres, ranging from a 204 Ruger- 577 NE, but still learn every day!

    Thank you for the opportunity to share this forum with you, I look forward to learn a lot

    Regards
    Ronald

    Tnx for the welcoming, everyone!

    Spike. My first rifle, as a young boy, was a Sako ( which I absolutely loved), and I therefore stayed loyal to the brand. The models vary from finnbear( 7mm Rem mag,30-06,375),
    vixen(22 hornet, 222),
    Quads (17 HMR,22LR)
    varmint's(204,223,22-250,243,25-06,260 Rem,338 Win),
    hunter's(22-250,270WSM,300WSM) bavarian's(25-06,6,5x55,270Win,375 ,
    TRG''s (260Rem,308,300Win,338 Lapua)
    Safari's (416 Rigby,450Rigby,500Jeff)

    Each one of them fitted with a Swarovski scope( my other great love).exept for the TRG's, which carry Nightforce

    and then there are the double's ( my newly found love) Verney Carron!!
    470 NE ( ph,round body with English colour case hardening,
    500 NE ( ph, with the "moustage")
    577NE ( ph, round body)
    577NE ( Azur Luxe', with "moustage " and nicee engraving)
