      Did you ever receive your mrc 30’06 that I read about? How did you like it?

      I read your post on the Model 70, and am interested in how you liked 350 grain bullets in your .375 H & H. I've been working up loads for mine in 350 grain TSX. My rifle shoots very well with 300 grain bullets, but I am going on a cape buffalo hunt in June, and am torn between which bullet to use. Both are accurate.

      Thanks

        The general rule on buffalo is to use the heaviest bullet that gives acceptable V and accuracy in your rifle. Bear in mind that you generally don't need (and actually don't want) very high velocities for this application. Anything above 2300fps will do fine.
