Well we recommend the 270 as the minimum when clients are coming over to hunt plainsgame including bigger critters like wildebeest and kudu and I must say from the few that did bring their 270 all went well two of them the last year hunted with the 150gr win XP3 bullets and they worked like a charm. These new bullets brought new life to a lot of rifles that was considered inadequate in the last couple of years.Frederik Cocquyt, Outfitter and Professional Hunter

Frederik, I was forewarned before I left home to have GOOD bullets and the .270 would work fine.
After my experience in South Africa and now at home a well constructed bullet makes all the difference.
It should lead to some new confidence in SA for the PH's if someone shows up with a .270.Practice whispering before you leave for Africa!
A Legend in my own mind!
