I have been using Impala 200gr bullets in my 375 H&H for the past 7 years. Total group size @ 100m for this period during sighting in sesions before hunting is 22mm without any adjustments to scope and including all shots fired from clean (unfouled) barrel. Shot everything from Springbuck to buffalo with these bullets with great results. Excelent trajectory, penetration and very little meat damage. The 375 is now one of my working rifles and not locked away in the safe because of excessive meat damage - you should really try this! (PS: I usually just fire two shots from the 200m bench to check my zero and they always touch - waht more could one want?

used 200gn 375 cal loaded to around 2900 fps, on recent hunt 1 warthog and 3 impala ewes 3 instant kills 1 impala ran about 50 meters after a botched shot that hit her on the left shoulder! Found bullet to be accurate i.e. 3 shots under 25mm at 100 meters, game killed as if by a bolt of lightning, plus almost no meat lost! found no sighn of bullet tumbling through game and even on the shoulder shot above the observed damage was significantly less than that seen on similar shots with bonded soft point ammo from the same rifle. In my opinion a great bullet and one I plan to use a lot of in future!

Tested on bundled magazines only - .308 130gr. Bullets tumbled each time shortly after impact having a negative effect on penetration ability. Don't regard these bullets as the best for hunting since it would cause a lot of meat damage due to the tumbling.

Why use 100year+ old technology when there is the bullet of the 21nd century? This leightweight solid can handle anything from varmint to elephant. Interested? P.S. available only in the free world, not in the USA
