A few years later at another DU event, an African safari for two came up for bid. It was a bargain I couldn’t pass up. It was a dream opportunity so I invited my hunting partner of over twenty-five years, David Smith, at seventy-five years young, to go with me. After many months of hand loading, I settled on a 180-grain Barnes TSX in front of 69.5 grains of Hogdon V100 powder and off to Africa we went. I was well pleased with how it performed. I took seven plains animals and all were one-shot kills. The Barnes bullets really did a number on the kudu, springbok, gemsbok, waterbuck, warthog, black and blue wildebeest. The Kimber is back in the safe waiting for its next adventure.
