I got a small package today from Superior Ammo:





Now I just need a few more pieces and I can hand it all over to the gunsmith to get the 375 up and running.

Cutter -- I am hoping that these will back my .458 in Zimbabwe -- we will see.

HornSuperFan -- Good eye -- they are North Fork Flat-Point Solids (FPS). Tip Burns will be doing the work once he finishes my .458. I still need to make up my mind on bases and rings and get the scope. I really only need about $20 worth of Warne steel bases and I could use rings and a scope I have on hand, but I will probably put Talley bases and rings on it to match the .458. Of course that means depriving myself somewhere else to make up the cost...:mpd:

I am hoping to go next year. The plan is a non-trophy, non-export hunt with CM Safaris and the 9.3 is a bit light for a back-up, although it will work if I can't get the .375 where I want it. I'd like to take my double but I think they will view it as too light as well. The .375 is new to me, an Interarms Alaskan I got from Luv2Safari on NitroExpress.Com.

I couldn't afford to go if my wife didn't save money because left on my own I spend too much. It is taking two years of money I would otherwise spend hunting Texas plus some more (hopefully from selling my hunting truck and trailer) to fund this one. If worst comes to worst I may also sell some guns I don't use much, but I hate to do that. Anybody need a real pretty .338-06 or a Wilson Combat Sentinel?

I need to get back on my fitness program -- I messed up my knee and used that as an excuse to stop. I will be walking a lot and need to hit the YMCA every day again.

If I can pull this off it will be a a hunt to remember.
