Reading in the latest American Hunter magazine I happened to see the reply from a gentleman (being nice here) who wasn't too complimentary about Max Prasac's clean kill of an African Cape Buffalo with a revolver. He fell back on the worn out argument of foot pounds of energy, so unfortunate!
I realize I'm probably preaching to the choir here but these guys that have no idea what they are talking about would be a lot better off if they would do a little home work before making themselves look so bad!
The hot rod 220 Swift is pretty impressive in the ft lbs of energy department, yet it probably wouldn't even break the hide on a mature Cape Buffalo on most shots. A few years ago an African PH said he would prefer the 30/30 lever action over the FA 454 against a charging Cape Buffalo, yikes!
Many, many hand gunners have taken big revolvers with superb bullets & cleanly taken every animal on the planet, we don't owe anyone an explanation or an apology. Those days are long gone!
