Hi Papabear,

I have used the 270 gr Hornady Spire Point since 1993 as my primary bullet for big Red Deer and Wild boar, A LOT!!, and tried in expansion medium the 270 Speer BT. They behave almost identical. So, I would use the Speer with total confidence!! More, would be one of the best for your intended use!
Good luck!

It’s a very good bullet for your intended use. I wouldn’t use it on big bear or buffalo.

I used Winchester 270 grain Power Points in .375 H&H factory load years ago on a bull elk. It worked just fine. I can't imagine your load won't work fine as well.

I have used the Double Tap 270 TSX load on elk, lion, springbuck, Oryx to name a few and it worked great. At ranges to 450 yards
It is now my general go to 375 H&H factory load. Reasonable in price for a factory load.

I've used nothing else in my .375. Everything I hit with it--big and small--falls. I would not hesitate using it on any game my PH recommends--he would know best.

Here it is recovered from eland (200 yard shot).

All three 375s keep the Speer 270s under an inch at 100yd, often cloverleafed. The 270gr Speers do a pretty spectacular job on prairie dogs out to 180yds as does the 300gr Oryx :D. Haven't had a chance yet to test drive on anything bigger, but I've used Speer bullets in other calibers and had great performance and expect the same results with the 375.

I seen a post saying that you do taxidermy in WV. Where are you located in WV and do you have a price list?
I'm going on my first safari in June.

Hey There,

Im looking to book my first African Safari for 2024 for my 40th birthday. I've never hunted Africa before, but was going to head to SA with my wife for a week then see her off and then stay and hunt.

Saw your safari come up as a recommendation and wondering if you had any time to chat.
Thanks!
Steve

Hi Theleatherman, I attach two price lists, one in English, one in Italian, because several words of the language used by the agent are very difficult to understand. If you get in touch with Laszlo Keresztes (owner/manager) tell him that you got the name from Paolo Sinha, italian hunter.
Suerte!
