Federal Cape-Shok with 300 grain Barnes TSX
I am in the planning stages of a Safari, and one of the main aims will be cape buffalo. I have a CZ 55 Safari that I love and shoot confidently. It likes the Federal 300 grain Cape-Shok ammo with Barnes TSX bullets. I am not a reloader, so will be using factory ammo. Has anyone hunted cape buff with this caliber and this ammo? Please, I am really interested in personal experience reports, not
a) reloading date (see above)
b) the advice that bullet placement beats bullet performance (I know) or
c) the advice that I need a bigger rifle (in spite of my motto, I'll stick with the .375 H&H)
Another one I considered was the Doubletap 270 grain Barnes TSX, having more energy, but they are not available in Australia, and I believe Federal would be readily available in Africa, if necessary. I would, of course, consider a different bullet in factory ammo if there was good evidence for superior performance, and if it shot well from my rifle, but have heard good things about the TSX.
