Thanks for weighing in...I'm glad to here your kudu from the eastern cape was as big as your other one. From what I've read, the kudu from the eastern cape were smaller than their northern cousins. Hopefully I have the .416 with me when we are out after eland...I've tried to find those 175 gr. Hornady's you're referencing, and everyone is sold out of them. Wow, 370 yds? I'm going to have to get closer than that...I'm confident that I wouldn't be confident shooting that far! My range only goes to about 150 yds, so I'll be trying shoot at least a couple times at 200 before I leave. I haven't been able to find the nosler accubonds in stock anywhere, so I picked up a box of 150 gr. swift sciroccos. I think they are very similar to the accubonds. This weekend I'm hoping to get out and see what they can do. Thanks guys for your reply's.
