    Went out last weekend to look for a mob of hogs that I know have been frequenting some wheat stubble country a long way from the river country they usually may be found.
    A trio of boars taken with my Winchester M70 in 300H&H and Woodleigh 180gr PP that I'm considering for my next trip to Africa.

    How'd it do? I'm building a 300H&H right now. Looking at 180gr tsx as my Africa PG, Leopard and Croc load.

    Good work - what were your observations on bullet performance and results? This is one of the bullets I am considering trying in .300 Win Mag and 30-06 - any feedback would be appreciated - thanks

    They are Paddy Melons first brought out here with the Afghan's when they imported their camels for desert food for them.


    Didn't dig these one's out but they worked...... I am an avid Woodleigh user for quite a few years and calibres. I have used them in .416, 9.3 and .338 and will be using these next year on plainsgame.
