The blesbuck below was shot by my son, Hardus.
Load statistics are as follows:
||GS Custom .224 40gr HV
||283m (GPS measurement)
||110mm or 4.3"
Hardus aimed for the centre of the right shoulder but, due to bullet drop, it impacted the lower section of
the shoulder. The bullet perforated the sternum, bottom part of the heart, the left shoulder and was not recovered.
The bottom two thirds of the shoulder, where the bullet exited, had meat damage.
To my mind: UNBELIEVABLE, but the adage "Seeing is believing" comes to mind.
I will certainly be replacing all the bullets on my reloading bench with GS Custom HP and HV.
GS Custom Bullets, situated in Port Elizabeth on the East Coast of South Africa,
manufactures solid copper, turned, monolithic bullets for hunting and sport shooting.
These bullets are used by hunters on several continents, hunting from the smallest of
antelope to the largest of dangerous game, using the smooth HP bullet, as well as the
more popular HV, FN and SP bullets with the patented drive band concept. GSC bullets
are configured for the highest possible ballistic coefficients. SP bullets are mainly
used for sport shooting. All GS Custom Bullets are moly coated.
