I would recommend 300gr TBBC or AFrame, they have a good record.
I developed the 250 load for PG only and it works well. But by the end of the trip I couldn’t help but wonder if a single load, the 300gr version, wouldn’t just make life that much easier.
I’d guess the 270 Barnes would be fine for what you’re wanting to do. But I think I would stick with a 300gr bullet.
The best weight for a mixed bag hunt.
All my shots were 200 yards or less, so without question yes. Being prepared for 300 yard shots would not be much of a trick.
Exactly, if you cannot make that shot with a 375 H&H, you need another rifle for PG.
The PH I hunted with last year uses TSX on buffalo. You may want to reconsider a DG round and a PG round other wise go heavy and have dope table for the long shots on PG.
depending on where you will be hunting 200-250 yrds should be max.
I prefer to have one load for a rifle. If I’m only taking one rifle (375 H&H), I’m ok with having two 300 grain loads for softs and solids, but I’m not ok with carrying a light PG load and a heavy Buff load. Thats just asking for trouble.
I’ll ask you this. Could you have taken every plains game trophy you’ve taken with a 375 H&H pushing 300 grain bullets?
There is your answer.
And the answer is yes to your last question...
2800 fps with a 270 gr bullet is way too fast for buffalo in the thick stuff.
2500 fps with a 300 gr bullet is more than you need.
