    One can always load down.
    The same can be said for the 375 H&H. If buying a new DGR I would get a 375 Ruger. I don't know about cartridge availability in Africa but for sure there is plenty of ammo for it in Alaska.

      I built a double rifle chambered in 416 Flanged. I have shot elk, deer, bear. I loaned the double to a friend that hunted Africa and he shot a "Buff" and several antelope with my rifle. Good rifle!
