Obviously a .375 is not needed for most plains game, however eland which can average as much or more than buffalo is a good excuse to use one and do in fact require a .375 or something similar in some countries. And if a hunter is a good enough shot to, as Sully claims to be to, "hit a man size target at 500 yards", from as (I) said a FIELD POSITION, great! I said that most cannot, I didnt say no one could. Shooting at game in the field is much different than doing it from a bench or from a solid, take all the time you need, slung up prone position at the local match. I have done both and wish like hell I could shoot as well in the field as I can during a match or from the bench! I think we can all agree that a good bullet in the right place will do the job regardless the name of the round.
