    Hello Gents,

    Just wondering if anyone has tried the Hydrostatic projectiles from Woodleigh.
    They seem to perform tremendously on 100-300 kg class animals in 358 but are quite a chore to get feeding due to the size of the flat nose area.
    Id love to hear any comments on thier use for Buffalo and heavy antelope like Eland.

    thanks for any thoughts.

    Robah, see the post Woodleigh Hydrostatic projectiles that I posted recently. And yes, it appears that most who use them are experiencing some feeding problems. However, there is no denying the excellent performance I observed on buffalo. Would like to see how well they work on elephant.

    Cheers
    Ben

    No problem with a Blaser 9.3x62 but we could not get them to feed from a M98 458Win.

    Thanks for the responses guys, looks like they might be better left for doubles.
    Feeding issues aint what I'm after in a DGR.
    cheers
