    Default Ruger300 WinMag did the work

    Folks I just got back from South Arfica and Hunted with my Ruger#1 chambered in 300 Win Mag. Although I also took my Marlin 45-70 Gov for brush areas my son and I used the Ruger exclusively. We each shot five plains game animals and couldn't have been happier with the 300. I used Winchester Supreme XP 3 Silver Tips and dropped everything. My Kudu went eight yards and fell over. My Ph Hennie du Toit with African Sky guided us both and gave us the tips on where to shot the various animals. While the lead retention on the 180 grain silver tips was poor the end result was what we were looking for. Should get my trophies in about eight months if all goes well. My friends at deer camp always kidded my about being over gunned but in Africa the Ruger was great.
