That is a smoking price! They were $800+ when new.
If they lose your luggage, they also lose your rifle... point not made, try again. We have some members here who are from that area and have expressed no difficulty in finding ammunition down there.Matchbox99, I was not referring to opening day! It is when the friggin airlines lose your luggage and you end up in JO-Berg with NO AMMO!!! Then again it could be the Cape, you out looking for something that is supposed to be there and is not. I know of a man who took his .300 WSM to Africa and then found out there was no ammo for the rifle. No body had any .300 WSM according to his PH. So he was stuck borrowing a rifle for his plains game hunt.
