The Peregrines and LRX's are made to order for a hard hitter like this.In the standard box I am getting 2900 with a 300 grain. Few bullets like that speed with a big hard animal. I knew Lee Ried when he owned swift bullets before Bill Hober shoved him out the door. He showed me 300gr a frames that had been shot out of a 378. The base mashed forward so it looked like a frisbee. I told him to put hard lead in the base but he never did. So my rifle as it is will work just fine for me. I put a 1/4 inch stainless coarse thread bolt just behind the recoil lug and glassed the box in solid and it is beautiful and balanced and works just fine as it is. If I take it for black and ugly I will use a 300 trophy bonded or a 300 north fork.
Thanks for your input. The reason I like the trophy bonded or the north fork is the solid shank. I have no experience with the peregrines but they are made in S Africa. I may be wrong but the Hornady makes me a bit nervous when shoved fast. I saw a 400 416 from a cape they shot with a 416 rigby.Nice at 2400.From a weatherby at 2700?Maybe not so good. I have seen recovered north forks and all have been perfect. Terry Weiland did testing and he rated the North Fork best of all. In his testing the barnes and trophy bonded if smacked into something hard they lost wings and veered from a straight line. After federal bought the trophy bonded line from Jack Carter they changed to gilding metal. Too hard and brittle. The woodleighs were excellent also. At H&H or in the big bores that run 2200 and under velocity. A friend of mine has a 458 watts. He tested the hornady regular softs. At 2150 they were beautiful. At 2400 they blew. So velocity can do bad things to bullets. So to get back to shooting big and ugly,s close I would use a north fork I am thinking.The Peregrines and LRX's are made to order for a hard hitter like this.
For dangerous game the new Hornady DGX Bonded would definitely be worth a look as well.
