    We went to RSA (Limpopo). A friend and I brought two custom Weatherby, 300 and 375. I reloaded for both using Barnes TSX (180 and 235). We did most of our shooting with the 375 due to thick cover and shot were very close.

    beautiful animals, I sure would like to hear some of the stories. I have a friend who has hunted New zealand, Africa, Alaska, US and Canada for various animals and one day he came over. I invited a few other friends over and we listened to his stories a viewed all the pictures and videos. It was one of the best get togethers I have ever had. I think it is time I start going with him.
