Why not solids for everything?

We use Solids often for Buffalo hunting, which is often undertaken in some real thick cover. These Solids will often go through unseen foliage better than a soft.
Naturally a good option for penetrating from the rear end of large game as it flees, often a required "follow up shot".
They are also often used on the small Game if damage in not preferred. In saying that, this lack of damage can also mean Large game will often travel further once shot as a small diameter hole will not allow blood and air to flow fast, often blocking up with congealed blood or bits of flesh, then you may indeed need to follow a wounded animal for some time..
The new Solids with a slight "Cup" on the nose are a good compromise on most game except Elephant. That is providing they feed in your rifle...

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
