During a big-game hunt for moose, grizzly bear and elk, make sure you have enough knockdown power. This .375 H&H ammunition is also suitable for hunting large game overseas. Lead-free non-toxic. 20 per box.
Performance: I took the Federal TB (Federal P375T1) Trophy Bonded Bear Claw to Africa this past august and performed extremely well on large plains game such as Eland, Wildebeest, Kudu and Warthog. We did not recover bullets as they passed through leaving a small exit wound. This leads me to believe the TBBC may be well suited for even larger game such as Buffalo although I have not tried it - yet. Accuracy: Practicing & sighting in before the trip I was able to consistently get 1-2 inch groups from my Blaser R8 Kilombero (Safari Barrel, 22mm muzzle diameter, 1-12 twist, 6 grooves) on a bench rest at 200 yards. Service: When I ordered I asked for and was able to get the boxes of ammo from the same lot. Thanks Cabelas!
I am making my second trip to Africa this spring. I bought Federal premium bullets with Barnes copper tips because they never let you down. I had some Federal Premium bullets with Nosler Partians but have never used them in the past. Why spend money on a trip of a life time and go with a lesser bullet. You can't go wrong With Federal and when you add Barnes you get the best squared. Great accuracy, great penetration with weight retention makes the perfect big game bullet. Don't leave anything to chance.
I used Federal Cape-Shoks for a water buffalo hunt in Australia. These were 300 grain Swift A-frames and there performance was great. I took 6 buffalos (management hunt) including 1 trophy bull, and 3 were 1 shot kills. Recovered bullets were perfect mushrooms with great weight retention. They are very accurate, doing consistent 3 inch groups at 200 yards
