"BIG IRON" AMAZON PRIME SHOW

JUST WATCHED MAX PRASAC's NEW SHOW (EPISODE 1) "BIG IRON" ON AMAZON PRIME. IT WAS HIS 2018 AFRICA HUNT, MOSTLY ABOUT HIS CAPE BUFFALO HUNT. VERY COOL SHOW, HE CRAWLED TO WITHIN 15 YARDS OF THE BUFF AND WHACKED IT WITH HIS BFR 500 JRH.

We're trying to show all aspects of handgun hunting by including it in a limited format. This was merely supplemental to the buffalo hunt. It took two shots (my first was bit low and shot from a greater distance). There was a fence in the background (a property line that it could have easily jumped) and the producers didn't want to show it because then it looks like a canned hunt (which it wasn't). Besides that, it wasn't meant to be shown in its entirety (the Nyala hunt) because the buffalo hunt is the story, the Nyala hunt a mere add-on.

Keep in mind that we had more than 24 hours of footage that needed to be crammed into two 22 minute segments which is a daunting task. My greatest concern was that we show the buffalo hunt in its entirety.

Re: "BIG IRON" AMAZON PRIME SHOW

Well thats what producers do and i know some platforms for tv shows wont show a hunt with a fence (high or low fence) or a feeder. So it makes sense and well, producers do what producers do and dont necessarily hunt. At least he showed all the buffalo and how fast it went down which is faster than 95% of the rifle hit ones ive seen.

Hahaha! Thank you! .458 Lott. He was pointing it at the buffalo when I took my first shot. After it reared up, feeling the effects of the Punch bullet, he stopped pointing the rifle at the bull.

Thanks! When I was waiting to get my revolvers at the airport in Port Elizabeth, I had a heated "discussion" with a rifle hunter (an American) who told me what I was doing was a stunt. There's a lot of ignorance that needs correcting! It will be a daunting task!

Awesome work Max, very well done brother!
Thank you for putting in all the hard work to get together a TV show just for us.
That looked like one of the most challenging hunts I know of. A lot of open ground to cover for a shot with a handgun. Good job.
I found it a little funny that both you and the guide were well armed, but the poor trackers only had their teeth and nails. :-)
I'm sure their plan was, if it hit the fan, they could just out walk or run you and the guide!
Impressive tracking too.
Looking forward to the next episode.

Thanks Randy! We used the sequence with the lower velocity loads to show how the offside hide "catches" the bullets as they pass through the body of the water buffalo. We've posted a lot of the bullets on some threads and it would have been great to be able to show them in the episode, but at the end of the day we only have 22 minutes to work with. The copper solids are all but reloadable showing only rifling marks in most cases.

I ALSO WONDERED ABOUT THE LACK OF RECOVERED BULLET PICTURES AND EVALUATIONS OF THE BULLETS AND THEIR PERFORMANCE, BUT I FIGURED 3 BIG FACTORS WERE AT PLAY: 1) LIMITED TIME, 2) THESE SHOWS ARE "FOR THE MASSES", AND 3) BULLET RESULTS HAD BEEN SHARED via OTHER MEDIUMS, INCLUDING THIS SITE. ALSO, SHOWING A LOT OF BLOOD AND GUTS AND INTERNAL DAMAGE MAY HAVE BEEN A LITTLE TOO MUCH FOR THE CASUAL VIEWER.

Max,
Caught episode 3 yesterday. By the way, the production quality is above outstanding.

I was quite pleased to see the 480 Ruger in action. I am from the same school of thought that you don?t always need the hottest, fastest, knuckle busting load to harvest your game. It was refreshing to see a female ?on the gun?. Not only was she packing it with confidence, she brought it to bear with surety. My children are all daughters. They love to shoot & they, like your huntress friend, know the joys of Big Irons.

I thank you for your efforts to keep us progressively educated. Watching the episode my appetite was whetted for more information on the special loads/projectiles being tested. Is that info going to be divulged by a writer, or you or in advertisements along the way?
