    Very cool video, and thanks Jerome for taking the time to answer questions and take my measurements at DSC 2019! It's not real clear, but I think I can make out two 7's on the case after ejection, is the double that took the buff a .577?

    Well done and congratulations on a beauty of a buffalo.

    This video clip has it all.

    Buffalo, V.C doubles, Jerome and Karl Stumpfe and the .577 N.E in what I assume is the Caprivi Strip, it doesn't get any better than that

    This is complete, nothing more to add.

    Great video, excellent thanks for posting.

    My hat off to you for handling a .577 in that manner.

    Way more gun that I am up to.
    My own trial with a .577 was quite a "wake-up" call !, and I am far from recoil sensitive.
