Roibok van 'n Leeftyd
From Nols Thiart in Tzaneen, South Africa
 
Impala Of a Lifetime

Calibre: 9.3 X 62.

Bullet: GS Custom HV 260gr.
Speed: 2500 fps.
Dressed out weight: 52 kg
Right horn: 25 1/2 "
Left horn: 26 1/4 " (The side that seems shorter).
 
This Impala was taken at 80 metres with an oblique frontal shot. The bullet entered centre on the chest and exited just in front of the right back leg. Exit hole was about 2" in diameter. Meat damage was low, as usual.

The Impala dropped where it stood even though no bones or cns elements were hit. The previous day I shot a smaller ram that passed at 120 metres perfectly broadside. I aimed for a neck shot and, leading by a small amount, hit the spot exactly as I wanted to. I was quite proud of my follow through. Once again no bone was hit but all the arteries and the trachea were cut.  There is something to be said for larger calibres having a more instantaneous effect as well as being more reliable for one shot knock downs. 

I also use a 10.75 with HV bullets and a friend of mine, who has been hunting with us for several seasons, commented:."It seems like everything you shoot at just falls down" 

It helps if you use the right tools for the job.
