We recently had two of our customers hunt Cape Buffalo in South Africa using our bullets in their handguns.... successfully!

Both hunters used our .476"-420g LFNGC bullets, one in a custom .475 Linebaugh, the other in a .475 Maximum.  Both of them harvested very nice buffalo with their sixguns.

We rarely get reports of recovered bullets, and even rarer is to have one returned to us.   Thought you folks here might like to see what one of these .476"-420g LFNGC bullets look like after penetrating several feet of Cape Buffalo!  This bullet encountered quite a bit of heavy bone during its travel.

I have not cleaned the bullet in any way, it is exactly as it was sent to us!  It was fired from the standard Linebaugh revolver.   No bullets were recovered from the buff killed with the .475 Maximum.... all were complete penetration shots.



Not bad for measuring penetration through heavy bone mass and muscle by the foot!

Thought you might enjoy this!

THAT BULLET HELD UP GREAT, CONSIDERING IT TRAVELED THROUGH A FEW FEET OF THE TOUGHEST GAME THERE IS, THATS WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS BIG BORE ROUND, KILLS ON BOTH ENDS. JUST TO BAD WE DONT HAVE ANY OF THOSE BIG BUFFS IN INDIANA. THE LOW ANTIMONY % REALLY PLAYED A ROLE IN THIS ENCOUNTER. WHATS THE WEIGHT EVEN WITH THE PAYLOAD OF MEAT?  THANKS MARSHALL.       JIM.
