For some reason big cats are appealing and the leopard is a tough customer.
I'd try with my Toklat shooting heavy 45 Colt loads...or whatever my PH said I should be shooting:)

My backup bucket list critter is interior grizzly on a backpack hunt with Lance Kronberger.


I would load 250 grain Barnes XPBs at maximum Casull velocities. They are devastating on cats and should work like a charm!

Speaking of leopard -- when wounded, they have the potential to be very dangerous for the everyone involved. A leopard is a thin-skinned, small boned animal. Yes, you've probably heard of 200 pound leopards taken in the past. Statistically, far more male leopards are taken 150 pounds or less. Shot placement is top priority.
