Re: Rifle for Africa Plains Game
I agree with gillettehunter, I have been out there many times and the two rifles you listed would be fine, unless Eland is on your list at over 350+ yards. Most animals are taken well within 200 yards.
Now, if you wanted to get another rifle, I would get the same caliber that your friends in SA are shooting. There have been times that I have seen rifles and no bullets arrive, or the other way around, sometimes both are missing. However, if you get one or the other, you can still hunt.
Just my two cents
