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?

That was one incredible first shot.
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.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
