Velocity is your enemy for blowing big holes in small game and not so much the caliber of the bullet. Using a faster 350gr bullet out of a 416 on small antelope is going the wrong direction. An option for smaller antelope is a monolithic solid or in any case a tougher bullet. One trip for both DG and PG I took only a 416 Rem mag. Worked on loads for both Barnes TSX and North Fork CPS bullets. Got them to shoot to same POI. Great combo for me. TSX and CPS for buffalo and CPS for everything else. Both loaded to about 2350 fps. On PG from waterbuck to impala the CPS bullets made 3/4” holes trough and through and no mess. The CPS bullet proved perfect for eland.
