Bullets Choices for 375 H&H Multi-Species Hunt
I am headed to Africa for a three (maybe 4) species Hunt. We are targeting Elephant, Leopard and Cape Buffalo in the Malapati region of southern Zim.
I will be shooting the venerable .375 H&H mag. and I am very comfortable with the rifle. I can handle bigger bore guns but the .375 H&H is by far my favorite, I have owned it for a long time and the bigger bore guns are just not in the equation.
My "dilema" is bullet selection. For elephant I need a solid - no question. But which one do guys like the best.
For Leopard I need an fast expansion soft point. THe Nosler Partition is my chioce there.
Finally, for Bufs I really need 2 bullets. A solid and an expansion bullet. I will use the same solid for Bufs as Elephant. The Nosler Partition is not the right chioce for the Buf. I have heard good things about Tropghy Bonded Bear Claws, but I am not sure you can buy the bullet - does anypne know if its just a Federal bullet that comes in factroy rounds only?
I will load everything in 300 gr with a muzzle velocity of between 2400-2450f/s - that seems to be the gold standard for penatration and expansion.
So in summary, I am looking for recommendations on .375 caliber bullets as follows:
1) DG Solids
2) DG Expansion rounds for Bufs
3) Confirmation on the NP as a good choice for Leopard
The 4th species will be an incedental Nyala or Sable and the NP is the obvisous choice from the .375 H&H - for me anyway.
