How long will the shots be?

Most of your shots will be 150 yards or less.  It doesn’t always work that way, and longer shots are taken, but typically, 150 yards or less is the normal shot.  It’s best if you know where your bullet will strike at 50, 100, 150 and 200 yards.  We work very hard to keep all shots to 100 yards or less as we don’t want to spend your valuable hunting time chasing a wounded animal through the bush. 

The most important part of shooting here is many of the shots come quickly so it’s important to be able to put your face on your rifle, look down the scope and acquire the target and shoot accurately within 2 to 3 seconds.  The trophy animals here haven’t survived by standing around watching intruders in their world.  They survive by fleeing and will not stand and look at you all day.

 

How much and what type of ammunition should I bring?

The airlines restrict how much ammunition you can carry by weight.  You are allowed by South African law to bring in 200 rounds. 

We don’t plan on you shooting that much.  Most hunters bring 40 to 60 rounds of ammunition. 

The best bullets we have seen are Premium type ammunition loaded with Barnes X, Swift A Frame or Nosler Partition bullets. 

We recommend you shot a 150-180 grain bullet, whichever your rifle shoots most accurately.
