    Planning a hunt and taking 2 rifles. 300 Jarrett for my wife and a 375HH for myself. Do we need anything else?

    Nope, you're set. But I would make sure I was shooting at least a Partition or preferably which one of these shoots the most accurately A-Frame / TSX (or TTSX) or North Fork softs in 200gr. These latter three will hold their weight. A 180gr at Jarrett speeds in something like a Nosler Ballistic Tip would be a concern to me, don't want the bullet to blow up on impact.

    You should have all game covered.

    What are you going after?

    Just in the planning stages right now. Plains game and some dangerous game thrown would
    be nice.
