What to Bring:
I would personally recommend a 300 Win Mag or similar. Each hunter is however different, so bring the caliber that you are most comfortable with. I would not recommend a smaller caliber than a 270 for the bigger plains game.
Type of Ammunition: The choice is yours. Some good examples would be Nosler Partitions, Swift A – Frames or Barnes X bullets etc,etc.
Please, remember you may not bring more than 200 rounds per rifle, and I would recommend not less than 80 rounds per caliber.
