Best blog of 2012 goes to:
'Later in the day we came across a huge Bull Buffalo. Peter (my professional hunter) thought he would be well over 104” (which is a Safari Club Gold Medal). We stalked him for a while and I drew my 454 and shot him through the heart twice to drop him almost immediately.
Peter was really impressed with the stopping power of my Ruger Super Redhawk and the Hornady ammo. He said each shot looked like a hit from a 375 H&H rifle!
That huge buffalo weighed approximately 1900lbs! '
'Later in the day I shot a wild dog at 49 yards. A great instantaneous kill, shooting offhand with iron sights. Those big XS sites are a huge help.'
