I know that a majority of African Hunting members love their big guns, the 375 H&H the 416 Rigby and the 458, that's not my question. I now the larger calibers are a safer bet when hunting the Eland, they are a big animal. My question is simple is the 270 WSM enough gun to ethically shoot an Eland with. I shoot my 270WSM very well, I'm not as accurate with the bigger guns. I've got a 300 Weatherby that I hate. I'm going on a plains game hunt this fall for ten animals and I'd like to take all ten with my 270. So the million dollar question is if the 270WSM enough gun to get the job done or, do I have to accept the fact that I'll need a second rifle for my Eland?
