Hi Ed!
New here on AFRICA forum...guess I will slowly be posting some heavy hitter stuff too...
If we could only get the 12ga FH in a operating reliable Benelli!! Lol
Best I can do is 8 fast shots of 880s Hardcast at 14-1500fps (or 1043s at 11-1200) into a charging locomotive ...now one must admit thats ALOT of Lead and Energy in under 2 seconds !(roughly a pound of lead!) All from a 7pd ULTRA Reliable platform!!
I wish I could take it to Australia one trip to do some culling!!
Hope all is well with you! SAFARIKID

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
