Hey Dan, let's keep it going!

What have you taken buffalo with?
And we can include african and asiatic water buffalo to this group in order to get a wider audience...looking forward to seeing more medium and big bores in the replies! (Will use my 416 Taylor should I ever get the chance to hunt water or Cape buffalo)

Myself: 5 (20% with non-magnum cartridge)
300 Win Mag
338 Win Mag (3)
376 Steyr

Will be packing the 9.3x62 for the next opportunity!

If I ever get the chance foy buffalo -
Bison would be either the 338 RUM or 375 H&H
Cape Buffalo would be the 375 H&H

I took my one and only buffalo with a 375Ruger and a 260gr Nosler Partition bullet. I hit him twice in the crease before he decided to drop. You could actually feel the ground shake when he hit the earth.

I recovered both bullets in the off-side hide. They were picture perfect mushrooms that could have been used in Nosler's next catalog.

But, am hoping to use my 45-70 on American plains buffalo within a few months. :)

My buddy Robert killed this record book in NW Wyoming with a 300 Win Mag. IMG_0034.JPG
