    Hi everyone. Thought I'd share this nice drop-shot at 280 yards with you. Caliber used was .308. Outfitter: Mark Whitehead Safaris (Mark Whitehead Safaris home page) in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Enjoy! Here's the video:

    Thanks for sharing.

    Neck shot.
    I wonder if the shooter was aiming for that shot?

    Hi Brickburn. To be honest, there was quite a bit of wind. Height of the shot was perfect, but I reckon the wind drifted that more than we anticipated. It was only a .308 caliber with 130grn bullet. Neck shot or not, I love it when they drop like that, ..... it means no tracking & less leg work!

    No doubt about that. Easy to find. :)
