Here are the pictures of the six animals I took in So. Africa.

IMG - Kudu SCI Sliver metal ranked # 189 in the world Taken with TC Encore 300 Win Mag
IMG - Blue Wildebeest SCI Bronze Metal ranked # 72 in the world Taken with TC Encore 300 Win Mag
IMG - Impala SCI Gold metal ranked # 72 Taken with TC Encore 280
IMG - Steenbok SCI Bronze # ranked # 91 Taken with TC Encore 280
IMG - Warthog Unscored and ugly
All kills were one shot and all animals dropped in there tracks making it and easy retrieve.
The loads I used were my own hand loads with Accubond 180 grain in the 300 and 140 grain in the 280
The 300 Win Mag barrel is topped with Burris 3X9 BDC scope with one piece Leopold base and twist lock rings
the 280 is topped with a Nikon 3X9 BDC scope with the same rings and bases.
This set up seems to be the best combination to stand up to the beating from air travel to horse back with out
I will be returning to So. Africa next year and plan on adding a 416 and maybe a 375 H&H to the travel kit.
