The .375 and Leopard - I need a bullet
Now that most African countries require at least a .375 for Dangerous Game, I am wondering about the bullet chioce for Leopard. I am starting to get too many different bullets for one gun. I have a .375 for most everythig big except for a .458 Lott for that one really big critter.
I have good controlled expansion and solids for the Bufs, good spitzer sytle bullets for large plains game and lion (NP) but I am not sure about Leopard. I have read, like most of us have, "The Perfect Shot" and agree with the need for a quick one shot kill. A pass through is not that desirable on Leopard and all of the aformentioned bullets will go right through Mr. Spots and probably the tree behind him.
The one bullet that looks promising is Sierra GameKing's 300 gn Spitzer. From what I have read, Sierra has toughed that bullet up quite a bit (which is the opposite of what I want) but it still seems to be the bullet most likly for rapid expansion on the light skinned/boned Leopard.
Leopard are a canundrum. Nothing more fierce when wounded but they are actually light skinned and boned, making bullet and load chioces tough.
Ideally I would hunt the Leopard with a .270 WSM or a .300 Win Mag. at high velocities with a ballistic tip bullet. I really do not care about meat loss from the shock - what I care about is "turning of the switch" as it is written. I want to stay with the 300 gr to try and keep the bullet placement about the same - at least for the first 100 - 200 yards.
Any other ideas for a rapid expansion .375 bullet for use of Leopard?
