Borrowed these photos from Gary Reeder`s web site that show their Cape buff taken recently with single shot handguns. Gary used one of his .45 caliber wildcats while Alcorn used a .416....Impressive trophies... Congratulations.... I`am sure you guys know who Gary Reeder is but may not know Alcorn.. I met him a couple of times at the Reeder hunt and can tell you he is a good guy who knows his stuff....

Reeder used his 450 GNR aka 450 Alaskan with a different shoulder and Alcorn used a 416 Taylor

Alcorn's buff looks an awful lot like a 50 incher!
