Buffalo Bore just added a new line of Dangerous Game ammunition to their already extensive lineup. All DG ammo is loaded with LeHigh Defense's flat-nosed monolithic solids for uncompromising penetration. They are available in .44 Mag, .45 Colt +P, .454 Casull, .460 S&W Mag, .480 Ruger, .475 Linebaugh, .500 JRH, .500 S&W Mag, and .45/70 Gov't (a 10mm load is also in the works). I have had the pleasure of testing most of it and accuracy is outstanding as is expected from Buffalo Bore. Also shot a large bovine (as did tradmark's daughter) with the pre-production .480 load at the last Bovine Bash. This stuff is ideal for bear defense and for hunting large, thick-skinned game where deep penetration is needed.

Here is a link to their site:

Here are some random photos from my testing.

Well it certainly looks like Buffalo Bore has cornered the market on proven-effective Dangerous Game revolver cartridges. As loaded with these mono-metal flat-nose projectiles, it now becomes the act of bullet placement to maximize killing that is the greatest variable concern.

Good looking bullets, it's nice to see that the selection for big bore ammo is growing...definitely a good sign. Do you know if they have 500 Linebaugh in the works?

Yes the 460 sw 300 grain solids ran 2140fps out if my 7.5? bfr. That would be my elephant load and well really anything.

THE MV ATTAINABLE IN A 7.5 INCH BFR 460 WITH 300gr AND 325gr PREMIUM BULLETS HAS TAKEN HUNTING WITH A 45 CALIBER REVOLVER TO A NEW AND HIGHER LEVEL! IF I WAS STARTING OVER ON MY AFRICAN HUNTS IT IS THE REVOLVER I WUD BE USING.

This is a game changer particularly for the person who doesn't reload or doesn't have the time or inclination to work up the loads. In typical Buffalo Bore fashion this stuff is accurate in everything I've tested the loads in.

Not something you want to burn through cases of at the range ($$$) but they should do the job. I've always been very happy with any of the BB products I purchased. They even came out with a Spitzer 45-70 load recently (even though as a short barrel shooter I think they used the wrong bullet) for single shots.

I don't mind reloading and working up loads but it's very cool to be able to pick up and try some factory loads...More options, more better!
