Nice, very nice :D

How easy do you find getting cartridges, and how much do they cost?

Ammo is available in England Kynamco (Kynoch) and with Wolfgang Romi in Germany there are some re-loaders down under.I have some serviceable ammo to use for a few safaris in Africa.

So do you import ammo then, seeing you are based in Delhi?

No mate cant but so far as i know you can get in cartridges (5kgs to be precise) if you have the reqd licencing and carrying permissions. I may be mistalken here but you dont pay duty on the first fifty and on the rest you do(please check this though as i'm not sure on this one)You also need to notify airlines before booking your tickets etc. and take their permission and maybe you need permission from the dgca as well.But do check all this info

I should have a couple of heavies in a couple of months, not an avid shotgunner, love my rifles and heavy doubles.Thanks for the offer, me casa es tu casa too! and glad to see a beautiful double, brings tears of joy.
