I recommend the 300 RUM and 200 Grain Swift A frames for any North American game (except maybe the largest Coastal brown bears in close) and any of the African plains game. I do not recommend using this load for African Big five.

Describe your experience:
I shot around 45 big game animals on this one trip. The animals ranged in size from a red duiker to an eland. I used a 300 RUM with 200 grain Swift A frames. The bullets performed perfectly on every single shot. I even finished off another clients wounded buffalo at 240 yards as it peered at us around a tree. The buff went 60 yards and the bullet penetrated to just under the skin on the other side. None of the other plains game animals went further than 30 yards and most dropped in their tracks. My experience has been this bullet performs very well with impact velocities between 2500 and 3100.
Rifles Inc 300 RUM with Custom North American Ammunition loaded 200 grain Swift A frames.
Would you take this trip again:
Would do this trip again.
I've been to Africa (8) times. I have also used this load on North Americas larger game (elk, grizzly, moose).
