    Your Rifle selection of 375 H & H and the 416 Rigby will have you well covered...

    30-06 is a great combo with your 375 H&H. 180gr for bushveld and 165gr for open plains. If you decide on a magnum then look a a 30H&H Mag as well. I love mine - extremely accurate, lower pressures and less recoil than 300 Win Mag.
