Whilst in Dallas this past weekend for the Dallas Safari Club Chapter convention, Tony Makris the host of Outdoor Channels Under Wild Skies kindly gave me some photos showing his success using a Super Magnum Explora in Africa this past year. It is nice to see that the gun that I used to title this blog does so well what it was designed to do, despatching in this instance both birds and buffalo from the same gun.
Tony used modern ammunition which was loaded for him by author and collector Ross Seyfried. Ross is no doubt ‘THE’ authority on this model of gun and over the years has worked up a superb load to suit both the regular and Super Magnum Explora. Ross I know has also shot Elk and Duck from his Explora gun in the same day but I have lost that photo!
