    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.

    After that, just practice and a booking!

    Have fun.

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