I’ve used basically all of Woodleigh‘s offerings on big bovines, and they’re all good. Each one of them is “the best” on certain angles and / or body locations. For side-on (or nearly side-on) it’s hard to beat their various softs (although in .375 I would stick to their heavy duty soft - but their standard soft would be better for pigs). Hydros are good for tough angles and / or thick cover. They drill straight through, but it’s a smaller hole without the impact of the soft. It’s almost impossible to predict the best bullet for the day ahead, but you just take your pick and make it work - which is what you did.

Ben I was mentioning to Ray that we shot some very large bodied Buffalo's with Woodleigh Protective Point Softs, and that they were brutal with shoulder shots, I thinks if he used the Woodleigh SP's he would have got a similar out come.

Pro tip on barramundi: if a salty takes an interest in your fish, it's better to let him have it. ;)

It’s good to see an Aussie story here.
I’m hoping to take an Aussie bovine someday with a .375 and Woodleigh.
Somehow I got side tracked and booked a trip to Africa, counting down.

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...

Ellwood Epps has 1 box of 25-20 in stock. Look them up on the web. They are located in Orilla Ontario.

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
