I'll be using my new-to-me Kreighoff Trumpf Dural this June in the East Cape for sable, nyala, cape bushbuck, and one more something, as well as a little bird hunting if time allows. It has a capable later version 1.5-6 Zeiss with Plex ret. and a light weight version Shuler claw mount.

It's in 16/16/7X65R, and I'll be shooting 160 Partitions at around 2,700-2,750 fps. Also coming is a Kimber MT 325WSM with 180s.

Figured I had better do this before I can't walk anymore. These "Golden Years" are brass and tarnished, don't let anyone convince you otherwise. grin laugh

Highlight the link thru the first big number, paste and it will light up and open with just a click.

The full link has to be highlighted, copied and pasted in the URL to work. This is much easier.

Good luck, Bruce! Sounds like a great trip. That 7x65R should be about perfect!
