solid bullet

Any suggestions on a solid bullet for a 280 AI preferably in a 140 grain bullet. I am planning an Africa hunt & tryng to get the small 10.

I would look at the Nosler E tip in 150gr or the Barnes triple shock
in 140gr or 150gr

What's wrong with a normal hunting bullet? Or are these small 10 going to weare a body armour?

My friend goes over there twice a year, and shoots nosler b-tips out of a 30 hart/7mm hart, and has almost all game drop in its tracks!, on bigger game he has stuck with the triple shocks, and swift a-frames, in bigger bore guns! with great sucess!, bullet placement is more important than the bullet on the smaller game animals! he has used the b-tips on Zebras, and says they drop in there tracks!, has a Full size mounted one in his living room!, along with a ton of other animals!
good luck, on your hunt!
