ABOUT HUNTING BUFFALO
Mature water buffalo bulls can weigh 1000kg or over 2000 pounds. Much has been written about suitable calibers for these large & VERY tough ANIMALS. We have been using a 375 H&H and it performs as one would expect, The moral of the story is use as MUCH gun as you are comfortable with, use premium bullets for the big stuff and ensure accurate shot placement.
GUNS FOR THE HUNT
We have a variety of hunting rifles that you can use while hunting with us or you may choose to bring your own, but it is important to realize that wounding an animal is what makes buffalo hunting dangerous, so you need a rifle and a caliber that does the job effectivly. At the top of the hill we have .458 win mag as our premier buffalo Stoppers alongside a .375 H&H. We also have .300wsm as a pig or donkey stopper, remember shot placement is critical and as Geoff Corry says:
“A well placed shot from any caliber is just as effective as a miss placed shot from a cannon”
