One fine Friday I’d say! Welcome to AH Bonk!
I’ll have to agree with Bullthrower about only one gun and make it the 375 H&H or Ruger. I too have taken almost all my Africa game using a 375 H&H from caracal and duiker to Cape buffalo and lion. In all honesty I have used different bullets for different applications, but a 300 gr Swift A-frame may have worked for all.

Welcome aboard Bonk. I was away hunting when you joined. I like the way you think and your current battery of rifles. For my first PG hunt I took a 35 Whelen which is much like your 9.3 x 62 and a 6.5 x 55 Swedish Mauser. I thought they made a perfect combination. You can always use your soon to be upgraded 375 H&H on future hunts for larger animals.

Hello Bonk,

Khomas Highland Hunting Safaris of Namibia, welcomes you to the greatest forum on earth.

Likewise, I’m +1 with Bullthrower338 for just bringing one rifle.
And, the .375 is perfect for a mixed bag, when including large, sometimes very tough animals, such as waterbuck, zebra and especially eland.
Yet with 300 grain bullets, it is typically easier on meat and skins of smaller animals, than the ever popular 7 MM Magnum and various .300 magnums are.

Also, you mentioned the 9.3x62.
This is another pretty much perfect African “plains game” cartridge for the “one safari, one rifle” concept.
Not likely you’ll be attacked by lions in Africa but, both the .375 or the 9.3x62 enjoy excellent and lengthy reputations in that regard.

Anyway...Cheers,
Velo Dog.

Yes, I am interested in some A Frames to load, if they are the 300 grain or other that will work for Cape Buff. I need enough to work up a load and sight in, then carry over there

Greetings Mr. Rutledge. My apologies for the latent reply, cell/email prohibited during working hours, apx 72 a week, yikes! I just wanted to thank you for keeping me in mind for possible 577 loads. I actually purchased a few rounds, however, the firearm is still on the fence at this point.
Many Thanks, again. Regards, Dan.
