Default Nilgai gun

Just see what different calibers people have killed nilgai with. Caliber and bullet would be great. I am wanting a new gun and trying to decide on caliber. Also looking for something light weight that can be packed around.

just use a good bullet for pass through since their heart and lungs are pushed farther up in the chest cavity.

nosler accubond, barnes tsx, etc.

caliber can be pretty much anything above a .243.

I can't directly answer as I have never shot a nilgai. But I have read about calibers to use on them before. Like anything else, I anticipate that there will be some debate on the topic. My guess is most people will say you need a minimum of a 7 mag and would prefer to use a 300 win mag or 300 wsm. Then there will be some that will point out that elephants can be killed with a rimfire 22. And of course, caliber doesn't matter as much as shot placement and bullet choice.

If it was up to me, I would probably go with a 300 WSM in a Tikka but I have no experience with shooting a Nilgai so take what I say with a grain of salt.

Most places require you to carry at least a 30 caliber.

I have not killed one, but shot placement is key, as with any animal. I wouldn't go with anything less than a 7mm/280 caliber myself.

I'm leaning towards the old trusty 30-06. but a 7 mag or 300 wm are not out of the question.

I'm no help

I remember reading a thread on here last year where someone was sharing there African Safari success with us.
If memory serves he brought a 300WSM and a 28 Nosler.
From my recollection the 28 Nosler anchored them better...

Let me see if I can find the thread
Here it is.

Good point. If you know where you are hunting them, you may check to see if they have a minimum caliber requirement.

I'm partial to the big 30s for game that size. I would be taking my Weatherby Vanguard
Wilderness 300WBY if I were chasing those. Loaded with 180g Barnes TTSX and at 8.5 lbs fully rigged it won't weight you down, just kicks like a stubborn mule.

I'd use the 30-06 if that's what I was most confident in. 180 grain premiem bullet should do it. If all else fails just shoot it in the neck haha

I definitely think you need a new gun specific to Nilgai. It's obvious that none of your rifles will be adequate.

I shot mine with a 7 mm rem mag with a 150 grain Remington core lokt. Howa 1500 synthetic. People give them too much credit just shoot a normal elk/deer rifle and try to hit it in the lungs.

Agreed, but I think the reason they're considered so tough is a lot of deer hunters shoot where they think the vitals should be and there's nothing there but muscle. Make sure to familiarize yourself with the vitals on a Nilgai - they're much more upright and forward than on a deer.

My buddy shot one with his plain ol' 30-06 and it went like 15 yards and crumpled up. I shot a much smaller cow a bit back and that thing ran for miles and miles. But not because she was super insanely tough. I just didn't hit her anywhere that mattered.

I killed mine a long time ago with a 30-06 with 180 grain bullets. Shot at 75 yards right in the shoulder and it ran about 100 yards before falling over.

If I was to do it again, I'd take my 300 Win Mag.

Yeah I mean technically I had to shoot mine 4 times before it stopped running so I guess a little extra lead never hurts, I hit it perfect with the first shot.

.30-.378 with 180 grain Barnes TSX is bad medicine for nilgai. Probably don't want to build one too light. Any .300 magnum will work with a good bullet; however, my next one will succumb to a .416.

I am sure you could take one down with a 243 or 308 or 6.5 creedmoor etc.. The way I look at it shot placement is always a huge part of hunting but why wouldn't you want a big enough caliber or broadhead etc.. to do the job as humanly as possible and help to put the animal down if you don't have the best shot placement. For an animal that will be in that 400-600lb range I would probably go with a 30-06 at least if not then 7mm mag 300 WM and get something with a (short/Fast) twist rate to shoot some heavier bullets which will have better BC because I also like to shoot far and it will have more energy. As far as something lighter weight a Tikka is a great rifle they are light and accurate, the savage is hard to beat out of the box and they have a lightweight hunter, the browning Xbolts are pretty good to and make several variations that are light weight threaded with a muzzle brake. A brake is something I put on my lighter weight larger calibers to reduce the recoil. Not because I am a wuss but because I like to shoot and shoot far so the less punishment I can take and less movement to the rifle and my body when I am prone out shooting 1000yds the better. I have savages, Tikka, and an xbolt they have all been proven to be great shooters and have produced awesome results to 800 yds and beyond with just factory ammo.

we have shot a bunch with a 300 WBY shooting the 180 grain spitzer. Shoot them in the shoulder, you have to break them down or they will just keep running. You can get away with lighter sure, but if you are spot and stalk hunting the situation isnt always ideal like if you were hunting from a box.

Do not shoot a nilgai in the lungs, they can run for miles if you do. Their blood has a very high oxygen content. Nilgai has very thick hide around its neck and shoulders (3/4" or thicker)

Most guides will recommend to take out a Nilgai's running gear first, which means bust its shoulders. A bonded bullet in 150 grain or up. King Ranch will not let you hunt with anything under 30 cal.

I shot mine with a 180gr TTSX out of a 30-06. One shot in the heart. My brother shot his 4-5 times with a 340 weatherby mag.

The '06 you are comfortable with will do the trick fine, just make the 1st shot count.

You should just get the weatherby vanguard dangerous game. It’s a 375 I’ve been looking at for a while. Good price and doesn’t seem terribly heavy.

I’ve shot them with.243 100gr hornady whitetail rounds and they have drt also with a 7 mag 150gr corelokts unless you have personally shot one you won’t know what really works the 06 will work great shot get a good shot placement as they are active animals and hardly stand around to take a good shot

I have not shot one but have been part of several hunts. Like every other animal, shot placement matters most. The quickest kills I've seen came from an open sight .270 (Bull) and a 22-250 (cow). I do NOT recommend the 22-250 as this was a phenomenal shot on a perfectly stationary cow by an experienced hunter who grew up hunting Nilgai. Frankly most of us are not ready to consistently make that shot and the margin for error is miniscule.

Shoot the gun you are most comfortable with using a bullet that is designed to penetrate elk. Then go to the shooting range and invest your time practicing awkward, uncomfortable, quick shots from positions you're not used to instead of worrying about the gun.

That being said, there are very few excuses for a new rifle that are better than a Nilgai hunt...haha...

Good luck and have a blast

Shot mine at 236yds with my Weatherby 30-378 w/220gr ELDX...took 10 steps. My buddy was set on shooting his with his 30-06, but had to make a deal with the guide that anything over that he’d use the guides 338 Lapua. He ended up getting behind the Lapua and letting it eat.
