    Smile 350 grain 375 Ruger bullets (Barnes banded solids or TSX) for dangerous game

    I have been looking at the Barnes 350 gr banded solid or TSX in my Ruger 375 for a cape buffalo next year. I also have a 416 Remington for buffalo. I would use the Swift A-frames and Barnes banded solids in that rifle (400 gr). I can shoot both guns well and practice with both. Suggestions...

    PS: I'm also looking for a place to hunt Cape buffalo inn 2011 or 2012. I have hunted plains game in South Africa in 2007.

    I have never tried the 350 grain Barnes offerings yet, but I am working with the 350 grain North Forks in my .375. Great bullet and I am getting pretty good velocities with RL 17. Shot a bear with this bullet and lets just say the bear went down so hard it bounced.

    The major problem you will have is dealing with the length of the 350's in mono-metal. Seating depth and the length of the magazine can be an issue.

    I've shot about 20 rounds of 400gn Barnes banded solids through my .416 Rigby. They grouped very well. I loaded 1gn under maximum with RL22 and got chronographed velocities a bit over 2400fps.

    I suggest trying them to see how they work in your rifle.
