    I am thinking of go to africa with friend who is a guide there. What should I take my 7mm mag or go head and buy my 338 and take it. Will be hunting plain game nothing to big. I think I will be hunting 7 animals for 14 days.

    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.
