Jani (Gina's twin sister) took her first blesbuck with dad's (Gerard) 7X57. It was an awkward steep downhill shot at about 80 metres and she pulled it plumb centre through the shoulders. The bullet was a GS Custom HV 130 grain at 3000 fps. The bullet entered so high on the shoulder that it clipped the bottom of the spine.
The bullet exited low on the right shoulder. The total meat loss on the animal was 1.6 kg and was confined to the areas directly around the entrance and exit holes. At that close a range (80 metres) we expected more meat damage considering the shot placement.
Gina (Owner of GS Custom Bullets) took this springbuck at approximately 100 metres with the 220 Swift. Muzzle velocity was 4400 fps with our 40 grain HV bullet. The shot passed behind the lungs and the buck jumped and ran about 10 metres before going down. This is the entrance side.
The exit side of Gina's springbuck. We took the photo after the shoulders were removed to show the lack of meat damage even in the soft tissue between the shoulder and rib cage. Meat damage was confined to the circled areas.
Gina took her first blesbuck with the Swift at 250 meters off a bipod. The blesbuck was standing facing her. The 40 grain HV bullet entered centre on the chest, went the full length and exited on the first vertebra of the tail with no meat damage.
This raking shot from behind on this blesbuck with a 7x57 and a 130 grain GS Custom HV bullet, cut three ribs going in, passed just inside the left front leg, and exited through the front of the chest. We trimmed away some of the membranes to expose the rib cage to illustrate the lack of actual meat damage. Taking a raking shot like this is highly predictable with GS Custom bullets. Due to the high weight retention and subsequent high momentum levels as well as the excellent deformed frontal shape, deflection is minimal.
