    Default VIDEO: 9.3x62 -V- Large feral male Camel

    A lesson in poor shot placement.

    This Large herd male was shot last August with my 9.3x62 using an experimental mono metal >250 grains. It was shot twice behind both shoulders. The first shot into the left side. The projectile proved too soft for Camels and only encountered the lungs.

    This video is of the second shot into the right side. When it turns you can see the entry hole of the first shot.




    It continued to walk off and my son dropped it with a raking heart shot using his .243 as I was out of ammo. .

    1) Hit them in the shoulder.
    2) After accuracy, penetration is the most important quality for a projectile.

    I have since sold the 9.3 and prefer my 7x57.
    Time spent in Reconnaisance is never wasted.
