Huge Eland

The Eland was not my primary trophy, but when the huge bull appeared unexpectedly, my PH looked at me and gave the thumbs up. I'm glad I had my .367 Steyr Dakota 76 that day. I had been hunting with my vintage .303 double rifle. I had 270 Swift A-Frame running 2500 fps.

Hornady really hit the nail on the head with this cartridge. Perfectly suited as a African Plains Game round - and - will take a Buffalo if loaded with 300 grain DGX.

I applaud Hornady for keeping this in the DG catalogue, as it's a very fine design.

Now for my suggestions. Need to add the 300 grain DGS and DGX at 2350 fps to the lineup. Field reports have shown excellent results.
