    Nice.

    I believe I'll need to go over there too, that Zebra is great.

    For the Blesbok, Steenbok and Springbuck I used a 7mm mag and 127gr EXP Groove Bullets. I used the 375 H&H AI with 272gr EXP Groove Bullets for the Zebra and the Bushbuck. I hadn't planned on using the 375 H&H AI for Bushbuck, it just worked out that way.

    The 7mm mag has a Swarovski 2.5 to 10 X 42 scope on it and the 375 H&H AI has a 1.5 to 6 X 42 Schmidt & Bender scope on it. The 7mm mag has a 24" barrel and the 375 AI has a 28" barrel.

    Dave,

    To "me" the Zebra represents "the" animal of Africa even though most advertise the Kudu as "the" animal. On my next trip I plan on taking 2 additional zebra.
