    Even in uncertain times the dog must still be fed.

    I would’ve gladly settled for any buffalo regardless of age or gender, but after a long and frustrating search I found this tremendous old bull and the M98 .300H&H did the trick with a 180 grain Woodleigh PPSN to the heart.

    Nice! I wish we had critters around here that we could shoot year round to feed my dogs!

    That old bull has CHARACTER.
    Very nice.
    Maybe too nice for the dogs? :D
    Some of that better end up as biltong.

    BenKK, is that the rifle you normally use on Buffalo? The 300 H&H is one of the calibers that I don't own but I've certainly thought about it. Did you have that rifle built or buy it as it is?

    It was made for me by Tony Small in Australia.

    I do use it fairly frequently. Not sure how many buffalo it’s knocked-over. Between fifty and a hundred.

    Hey really nice old bull there Ben.
    Nice thick bases !

    Hope you're wearing your tree climbing shoes when you go out buff hunting with the .30 :whistle:

    He was about sixty or seventy metres away, curious, when I shot him, and he instantly buck-jumped forwards in a sprint towards me, so I pondered my position and my waltzing abilities and the various trees shielding me, but in the same moment he veered away nicely.

    ben,
    you need a 9.3 x 64.
    he would have gone down like a bag of hot doodoo.

    Ben, I will have a custom build on an Argy '09 in 9.3x64mm for sale soon if you want to test Bruce's theory ;)

    Nah, mate it’s a Super .30 as they call them. The term was new to me but the .300H&H certainly has some devout followers. Nice rifle and I’d rather that than a .308 inning Buffalo when I get the chance.
    Paul T , I think it was you that led me toward your mates .375H&H, it’s been good so but little use.
    On first receiving it I slammed some PPU ammo through to see how it functions , quite well. I them offered my 16 year old twin nieces a shot of the Elephant gun who gladly had a go off sticks. Both Happy to use it before there father arrived to get a turn.
