    Thanks to Hansie for the excellent service and quality item and to Gert for facilitating.

    Thank you kindly oafpatroll for the positive remarks,it is much appreciated..yes, it is true, Hansie Minnaar really makes high quality products, the bullets/drawn brass he makes are of excellent quality, I am only buying bullets from Hansie Minnaar, the bullets and brass can be compare to oversea companies and still will be the best since every bullet/brass Hansie Minnaar is making is custom made by hand ....Hansie Minnaar is the person you go to if you have difficulty getting your rifle to shoot small groups, he really made a huge difference assisting me to get the 11mm Mauser and my Martini Henry shooting.... Please be so kind as to give us a feedback from using your sling shooting out of hand and in all other shooting positions....

    Update:
    Members , I fit the hunting/shooting sling to my Mauser 43 that I will be using on the black powder hunt. I duplicate this belt for Ruan to use on the Martini Henry he will be hunting with.
    Re-loading /practicing out of hand shooting will commence next week . I will then be able to give feedback from the shooting range in regards to the use of this belt/sling.

    Good, I applied some leather cream conditioner and neatsfoot oil to the belt, it is soft and pliable..will fit it to the Mauser 43 Black powder rifle I currently am reloading for to use on the 1885 Era Black powder hunt. I need to shoot off hand on this hunt since it is a walk/stalk hunt shooting at maximum distance of 50 meters at game. I will be shooting /practice off hand with the sling at 50 meters , will give some feedback..
    The Mauser 43 is a great rifle to shoot, Johan and me did some re-loading since he is taking his Mauser 43 (11x 60mm/11.15 x 60 Rimmed Mauser) as well..this caliber really gets your attention when shooting it..gentle recoil but a big bark when pulling the trigger, the double set trigger is a great feature on this rifle. Keep in mind when Paul Mauser designed this rifle it was one of his best designs since he manufactured thousands of these rifles for the Otterman empire..circumstances changed due to other countries like France who designed the 8 mm Lebel smokeless rifle , Paul Mauser scraped the Black Powder version he worked on and designed the first Mauser actions /rifles as we know it today...but the Mauser 43 still was and is a good quality designed from those days..

    Good, another feature I like about this rifle is the use of the 404 Jeffery ( .423/10.75 ) bullets, smooth cast bullets I am paper patching using ions- skin paper /airmail paper to paper patch from 10.75 mm to 11.15 mm paper patched bullets that fits/reload beautifully in the brass cartridge.

    I will upload a few photos of the reloading process including technical specs in this regards.
    This is a photo of two beautiful Mauser 43 rifles I got as a gift from a friend in the USA , it will come to SA via a visiting hunter shortly.
