Not sure a expanding bullet is absolutely necessary after seeing pics of what a 407grn 375 bullet does to an eland going in and out!!!

But

I love x bullets and expanding monos in general....

For traveling to Africa for Cape Buffalo, Asia or Australia for Water Buffalo, Arctic circle with a rifle with a 30 inch barrel, consider buying a substantial extra long TSA approved carrying case. Be prepared to pay significant oversize/weight baggage fees. Consider what you are willing to do without on a float-plane where the limit for all gear including rifle is ~65 pounds, unless you are going to charter the plane by yourself.

Good luck with your choice
