August 03-13 of 2023 I hunted with @BAYLY SIPPEL SAFARIS with excellent results and accommodations.
I brought with me my new chapuis 470 nitro DB and my 300win mag R8 Blaser.
Here are some pics of the trophies

Unbelievable trophies. Congratulations.
I need a big Eland!!
 
Tell me about the bullets, would you please?
 
the Eland shoot with 180grs speer hot core bullets 2 shots 300 win mag
next time will use my 340wby or 375 h/h
 
woodleigh 470 nitro 500grs and barnes 500stx recovered from the buffalo
Were you shooting factory ammo or handloads out of the Chapuis?

How’d the TSX shoot/regulate?
 
All my hunting ammo is loaded by me
never used any factory ammo
I’d be interested to hear your loads if you don’t mind. Feel free to PM me. I’ve got the same rifle and it was supposedly regulated for Federal Woodleighs.
 
Congrats on an awesome hunt and animals. I was there about 10 days after you left and hunted a hippo with Dempsey. I will agree that they have a wonderful hunting operation.
 
Nice critters, congratulations.
 
Looks like a great trip. Is this at Madikwe?
 
Congrats and thanks for sharing!
 
Great hunt, congrats !
 
My loads for the 470 nitro used IMR 4831 106grs and fed 215 with woodleigh bullets soft and hornady DGS/500 GRS
same load for the barnes SXT BULLETS
and for the 300 win mag used speer hot core bullets for all my plains soft skin animals .
But I must say a 338 cal 250grs or old proven 375H/H with 300 grs would been more appropriate choice .
 
Great trophies! It was also a real pleasure getting to meet you and get acquainted there in camp for those couple of days.
