Soft Point / Solid Combo for DG
I've got a question concerning bullets for DG, specifically for Buffalo. I don't know when I'm going to get back to Africa but when I do, I'd like to go after Buffalo. Shortly after getting back from my first safari this past summer, I bought a Model 70 in .375 H&H. With my hunting schedule in the fall, I've still not fired the gun, but that will change this weekend.
But my question concerns what bullets. Mostly what I read here on AH, is to use a soft point (I'm leaning towards Swift A-Frames or Nosler Partitions) with a solid for a follow up 2nd shot. Is the reason for the solid 2nd for a potential head shot at a charging bull? What if the bull doesn't charge? I've seen numerous videos where a shot buffalo doesn't charge, but maybe just runs a bit but still offers a follow up.
Just trying to understand better how and what to prepare for.
