Those big buff would be worthy of my .375 and 300 gr bullets for sure! And, I as I recall, the people speak something vaguely akin to English...

Just committed to do a buff cull hunt next year. 2-4 buff a day for a least a week. Leaning real hard towards the Swift A-Frame 300 gr. Sp 375 H&H. Gonna be fun. May bring a 416 or 458 along for a box or 2 of shooting just for a comparison. Be cool to get 25 or so buff in 9 days.

Cull hunts are good fun. One thing to consider though is the maximum weight of ammunition you can carry on your flight, especially if you are going to bring in heavy rounds like .458. It isn't hard to go through 5 kg of ammo, especially if you are not only hooking into the buffalo but also pigs, donkeys etc. You can of course get ammunition in Darwin, but you might want to organise in advance to get the one laid in that you want if it is a less-common load.

I'm good ammo wise. On the heavy stuff, only 20 or so rounds of ammo for 458 or whatever i decide to take(if anything heavy) rest 375 H&H. Will Max out my 5 kilo import, but won't use it all up.

Let us know how you like the cull hunt. I can see myself going on one of those in a couple years.
