Almost all of those animals will need soft points only. Hippo is the only exception where you may use a solid. So go with Swift A Frames. Solids are then Swift as well by default.

No point choosing bullets based on solids which you probably wont use anyway.

With bullets and ammo getting hard to find.
What would you chose in factory ammo? Only 4 choices!
Only 300 grain!
Solid and soft bullets!

A. Norsler in solid and soft
B. Swift in solid and soft
C. Federal in solid and soft
D. Hornady in solid and soft

Or a mix of the 4 choices above.

Please:
No other options!
Factory ammo only option!
No reloading options!

Ammo is for .375 H&H mag, and for both DG: hippo (land or water) and buff, and PG: eland and gemsbuck/oryx.

No offense but Please for this conversation any other recommendations or personal opinions I am not really interested in.
SWIFT A Frame softs by far!!! Then I use FEDERAL solids.. never tried SWIFT solids before.

Hhmmm....In Zimbabwe: 375 solids or softs may be needed for hippo and buff. 375 softs for eland and gemsbuck. 375 solids for the smaller PG to minimize hide damage for full body mounts.

In SA: I'll be using my 30-06 rifle and 44 Rem Mag revolver and small(?) caliber PH's rifle on PG.

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.
