    Slaughtered weight 440 pounds (200kg, feet, head, skin and entrails removed). Not the biggest bodied, but was not supposed to be trophy, will still get that one.

    Shot with a 180gr NorthFork out of my 30-06 at about 2670 fps muzzle velocity at 175m. Eland bull went about 50m before rolling over. Shot behind the shoulder and penetrated the lungs and heart, through the opposite shoulder and the bullet was found just under the skin...
    Bullet retained 176gr

    Thanks for all the comments through the years !
    Timely nonetheless. I'll be at HartzView this Monday with my son. We're carrying rifles in .308 Win, .300 Win Mag and .375H&H, shooting 165gr, 200gr and 250gr North Forks.
