ULRIK - MAY 2006
Hi GS Custom,
I was in RSA in May. I shot a big white rhino with the 416 Wby and open sights. (In the following days I just mounted the scope and shot nyala, eland, gemsbok and kudu.) I used a 410 grs GS Custom FN solid at 2725 f/s. It went right through on a slightly angled shot. The rhino went 50-60 paces and was found dead. The blood track was amazing - I have never seen anything like it before and even a half-blind could follow it..
The rhino was BIG bodied - the two PH`s who saw it had never seen such a big bodied bull before. We cut a road into the bush and had a truck with a big crane come and load it. The men couldn't lift it with the long arm which could take 3 tonnes. They estimated him between 3 and 3,3 tonnes.
