I'm sure that there's a story on the 375s that I missed; but those pictures hammer home why I don't use them anymore.


Life begins at 40. Recoil begins at "Over 40" Coincidence? I don't think so.

Lemme see;

Bullets can be recovered at the end of a very long blood trail. They can be recovered from animals that have been shot multiple times. They can be recovered from animals that were finally killed with something else. I even found one laying on the ground at least once.

So without the back story all I'm seeing are copper bullets that barely expanded.

Just an update but I leave for africa in a little over 3 weeks. I shot my 375 and 416 with 300gr fail safes and 350TSX respectively. It was a very hard decision but I’m taking the 416 loaded to 1.5gr under barnes’ listed book max with H4831. I guess I’ll just have to book another hunt a try the 375RUM next go around.

Thx to all who responded. Hopefully I’ll post pix when I return. And thx again to Ed for keeping me in bullets for the 416!

I had covid 6 weeks ago…. I showed positive on my PCR test the day before I was supposed to leave….delta said I could go if I got a negative rapid test AND I was cleared to travel by a physician. I got those done but my PH, who I’ve known for many years and fully trust said he had talked to everyone he could and that “no way” should I even get on the plane….he said there was no way to know what the heck the govt officials over there would do to/with me once on their soil….thank you for everyone’s input. Maybe next year…. Very disappointing.

All 3, 300 grain Swift A-Frame from 3 different buffalo with same rifle and box of bullets Mule Deer sent me.
Starting velocity was right at 2650.
Light one went through both shoulders of my bull. All ranges under 75 yards. All recovered under the hide on the off side.

Mmm, pity they do not penetrate. My shot with 400 grain Woodie went nearly the length of the beast and out between the front legs. Of course it was jus poking along at an MV of 2100. The heart had a big hole in it and that may be what proved fatal .

Good job on the pics.

That sorta frontal area has to be tough on Buffalo. Thanks for posting the recovered bullets.

If I have older boxes of .375 300 grains Nosler Partition on my shelf, how is it possible to determine if they are pre or post "partition moved forward" ?

Not sure about the location Partition but the older Partitions were supposed to be sought after by big game hunters.
