Hi Roger

 The scope is a Burris Euro-Diamond 1.5 - 6 x 40mm with 30mm tube and a Posi-Lock to lock the reticles. The stock is by Ram-Line and the butt paid is Decelerator.

I checked the reviews on the Burris Euro-Diamond  scope and it sounds pretty good. http://www.chuckhawks.com/burris_euro_diamond.htm

I will try it out and, if it is as good as the reviews make it to be, it will stay.

Yes, Safari is my intention. A Safari is something nthat I have always wanted to do and do before I get too old to really enjoy it.

I hate to admit frailty but 18 I am not and do not believe that I will ever again be.

I am just starting to plan and am looking at possible places and game to hunt. Angola is my first choice.

A trophy Cape Buffalo is a certainty and also my primary objective to hunt in Africa. For years I have heard how dangerous they can be.

To the Cape Buffalo, I am looking at what else is in the chosen area so that I can go after at least 3 different species. I will be taking my MkV in 375 H&H as well.

Marishka,
Looks like everything up to and including buffalo is covered rather well. I believe you've got enough gun.
