    Barnes TSX 300 gr 375 perfect lion load

    I love Barnes TSX for most everything. I do hear what others are saying about a softer bullet for a cat. I more understand the rationale for leopard than lion. I used the soft Swift Scirocco last year for my leopard with devastating results. My lion was with a 300g Accubond. I would not hesitate...

    Barnes TSX 300 gr 375 perfect lion load

    Swift Scirrocco is what I shot the leopard with. Very similar to partition.

    On land hippo solids or softs

    I shot another hippo on land for cat bait last year. I used 400g TSX first and then 400g solid. The TSX with its deep penetration is the way to go. I hit him in the neck, for the second shot, running with the solid trying to avoid any chance of hitting the rumen and it just penciled through...

    "GO HUNTING NOW WHILE YOU ARE PHYSICALLY ABLE!"

    We are in the same spot. I was hoping for Dalls sheep on my upcoming full bag AK hunt but sadly the season was just closed. Now I have to decide what to do. I am chasing the Ibex of the world and will hunt Spain this year. That is not physically challenging however. I need to put Dall's sheep...

    Binocular Advice Needed

    I only use 10x binos. There are situations where I would be better off with 8x but more often the 10x is suitable. Many people swear by 8x and do well with them in a variety of situations. Everyone's eyes are different that is for sure!

    Solid bullets for Buffalo? Yes or No?

    I have likely killed more total animals than most anyone on this site. I've lived on a ranch and have been killing animals my entire life. All kinds of animals from a very young age. I guide many hunters myself here in Texas. In recent years I have truly fallen in love with the performance of...

    Best Solid for Elephant

    Those Barnes performed well on that tuskless in the Omay. That follow-up shot went through the shoulder, traversed the whole animal, through the back leg and almost exited! We found it just under the skin. Best of luck on your next adventure FT!

    Best Solid for Elephant

    @TOBY458 and I were discussing this some years ago. He has done lots of research on this am mentioned that the flat or cup nosed solids were superior to the round nose. After great results on elephant in two calibers I tend to think he is right!

    375 for plains game

    Once you get used to the .375 and Hunt with it a bit you will realize, as I have, that is is a fantastic PG rifle. The caveat for me would be the distance of the shots. My .375 would be an ideal rifle for much of what Is hunt in say Zimbabwe while it would not be ideal in my hunts to the EC with...

    Solid bullets for Buffalo? Yes or No?

    With Barnes TSX in mind as a top bullet for Buffalo solids have no place on a buffalo hunt. I don't know why this ancient philosophy continues to this day but it does. The theory is that a "soft" will not penetrate past the rumen on a buffalo running away. This is simply not the case with the...

    City Lodge questions

    Very true in some areas but Africa is a big place. I would note that Namibia would be a contrast in that it is very safe to drive yourself.

    Who's Flying Qatar This Year?

    In 2021 and 2022 I had QSuite the whole way. I am guessing these are the A350's that were sitting due to the paint controversy and now returned to service with no updating.

    Barnes TSX review

    This is what I love about Barnes! I've used it in many different calibers now and the ability to take down large game yet not damage smaller game is unique.

    Delta vs United (higher end economy)

    I am unlikely to fly out of NY or NJ with guns. Delta Comfort+ is what you are looking for. It is the sweet spot on price and comfort. If Premium Select is $3500 or less I would consider it.

    City Lodge questions

    You don't need it. The hotel is literally in the airport. Just follow the signs or head towards the parking garage and you are there. Watch out for the vultures! If you want to lay a porter fine but don't pay them much. They are getting pushy these days. I enjoy City Lodge for many reasons. I...

    Very true. A friend who is joining me in 2026 for Zim safari was looking for a Winchester in .375 and was told it is a 2 year wait on a new one. Used market is hopping!

    Cameroon forest hunt coming up soon / travel question

    I guess the question is why are you laying over in Casablanca instead of going straight to Douala? Are you taking a rifle? I flew Air France from Houston to Paris to Douala.

    Preferred calibers for Rhino and Hippo?

    .416 would be great and really anything above .375. I have personally taken a rhino with .470 and hippo with .375 and .450/400.

    Who's Flying Qatar This Year?

    I am guessing it is only the paid service that shows you whether it is QSuite Or not? I am logged into the free version and can make flight alerts. It only shows A basic 1-2-1 seat map with no further information.
