When I was in my last safari in Namibia we were going out to look for Eland. I had brought two rifles with me a 300 ruger compact mag and a 375 ruger. When the PH seen the 375 he questioned me why I didn't have the 300. I said I may need a little bigger rifle for eland. He said get your 300 you've killed everthing with it just fine and eland aren't that hard to kill. Will I got my chance and it was a pretty steep quartering shot. The 180 grain nosler partition went through the front part on the stomach through the lungs and into the far shoulder. He didn't take three steps. Now I have only seen one eland shot but I am sure my PH has seen quite a few.
