For plains game in Africa, you could use either a 7mm or .338 magnum. Your PH will probably recommend premium bullets in heavier weights. 160 gr in the 7mm or 250 gr in the .338. The African PH's I talked to all highly recommend the Swift A-frame bullet. Some like the Nosler Partition, but some have told me Noslers expand a bit too fast for their liking.
