I managed to take this old battle scarred Impala ram today at 22 yards, he was quatering away when the Excalibur Firebolt tipped with a 4-Blade 130gr Muzzy broadhead passed through him, breaking the far shoulder. He only went 68 yards, but what is even more amazing is that I actually found a part of the lung on the blood trail, it seems that it was severed by the shaving sharp Muzzy's and fell out of the gaping entrance wound about two thirds of the way along the trail the ram took. This is the first time I have seen this while bowhunting, I have seen it a few times when hunting with a high powered rifle but never with a broadhead tipped arrow. Incredible.

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.
