When it comes to the rifles he uses, SCI Member Ron H. writes:
“I traveled to Africa twice in the past two years–2011 and 2012. In June 2011 I hunted the Limpopo Province and Orange Free State with PH Wiehan Buckholz. I took 14 head of game including black wildebeest and red hartebeest. On the black wildebeest I used a Winchester Classic SS in .300 Win. Mag. scoped with a Leupold 4.5-14. Bullet used was 180-grain Nosler Accubond.
“For the red hartebeest I used a Sako A7 in .270 WSM that was also scoped with a 4.5-14 Leupold. Bullet was 130-grain Nosler Accubond.
“In June 2012 I hunted again with PH Wiehan Buckholz in the Limpopo Province where I took six head of game. The rifles used were a Winchester Classic SS in .300 Win. Mag. scoped with a 4.5-14 Leupold, and a Ruger in .375 Ruger scoped with a 3-9 Leupold. Bullet used in the .300 was a 180-grain Nosler Accubond. I recovered two of them from animals, and both had lost about 1/3 of their bullet weight. Neither exited a blesbok or zebra.
