For years I've been promising myself an African plains game hunt and I've finally decided that this is going to be the year. I want to limit myself to one rifle; the plains game will include Kudu, Waterbuck, Wildebeest, Nyala, Blesbuck and Impala. In short the largest will be comparable to an Elk with most of the others in the whitetail, mule deer class. From what I've read and been advised, most shots will be one hundred yards or less but I will prepare for 300 plus, yard shots. My Gun safe has several calibers to chose from including a 6.5-284, 7mm Mauser, 270 WSM, 300 Weatherby as well as a 375 H&H, all bolt actions. I'm leaning towards taking the 270 WSM; I just don't think a plains game hunt will require the stopping power of a 300 Weatherby or 375 H&H. Both the 270 WSM and the 6.5-284 have ultralight composite stocks which would make the daily walks a bit easier to manage. Lastly, I handload so any suggestions as to what bullet you'd chose would also be appreciated. If anyone has any experience with plains game hunts or suggestions as to a specific rifle you would chose and why, I'd appreciate any and all input.
