I will not use 230gr bullets....lightest I would use pg only is 260gr Accubond...I will not use that bullet on eland.

As mentioned before a premium 300gr bullet is all you need out to 300m

I agree IvW , I need to find a balance between accuracy shooting and recoil over longer hunting distances. I need at least to start doing a lot of shooting over longer ranges since I only do bushveld hunting shooting at 30meters to 80meters in the bush. With trees in abundance to shoot from...excellent shooting sticks (y) :ROFLMAO: these tree stems and branches make...

Walking the Kalahari will be an entirely different type of hunt, although I am currently fabricating some decent stable 4legs /quad shooting sticks I need to practice shooting off. Bench shooting will not be considered at all.

IvW the bullets I will be using have the advantage of supplying a practice bullet as well , shooting the same point of impact at the 250gn Perigrine bullets.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
