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. [slideshow] "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. "The bullet used in the .375 Ruger was a 270-grain Barnes TSX that performed dynamically. I shot a Cape buffalo at 70 yards, it ran 30 yards and went down."
