Great job fellas; hello to Alcorn! He has hunted with me before.

I used my 416 Taylor Encore pistol. I loaded the ammo with 400gr. Swift A-frame for the first shot. The buff was quartering away. The Swift bullet took out the left shoulder, left lung, and diaphragm. He was down and could not get up, but not dead. I then put 3 400gr. Swift breakway solids in him for finishers. I had already load again and the guide stopped me. He was dead!
