Re: Rifle for Africa Plains Game
Thanks for all the information on calibers, bullets, etc. Based on your suggestions and talking with some reloading buddies, I picked up some Hornady Interbond bullets. 139gr - 7mm; 165gr and 180gr .308. Will work up some loads this week end.
Started looking at the paperwork for the trip. Temporary Firearms Import for SA. SAP 520, US Proof of Ownership CBP 4457 - Certificate of Registration from US Customs. The other paperwork I'm good with, letters of invitation, etc.
Looks like the trip may move into the first couple of weeks of July, work seems to be getting in the way. Business trip to Brazil in June, one of my hunting friends will be there as well, so we are still good to go.
Any suggestions on preparation, paperwork, etc. will be greatly appreciated. I will fly into Johannesburg Tambo, go through customs, then make a connecting flight south.
Still thinking about that 9.3x62; however, can't talk Charlie out of his.
