My first animal I took with my 500 S&W was with this Ammo. It was a bison at 32 yards. The results where poor at best. A week later, I took a asian attic water buffalo in Argentina. It took five well place shots to finish the beast. Again the results where very poor. The next animal was a whitetail that I totally lost. I did take a buck at 105 yards, but had to track it 100 yards before I found him hiding under a down pine tree.
Please don?t get me wrong, I love Hornady Ammo, just not this Ammo. Ive since changed up my Ammo and have had great results on animals ranging from Warhogs to Cape Buffalo excluding a one shot kill on a Lioness and giraffe . Again, I?m am not Hornady Ammo is grap, I love Hornady Ammo and bullets, but there are a lot better choices out there for the 500 smith. This is my own opinion based on my own personal experiences. I am not trying to start any Arguments for Conservercy. I?ve just found better choices.

WHEN GUYS WHO HUNT FOR A LIVING, OR WHO PAY BIG BUCKS TO HUNT THE BIG AND BAD STUFF, MAKE COMMENTS SUCH AS BUD's ABOVE, I PAY ATTENTION AND DO NOT DEMAND MORE DETAILS, NOR AUTOPSY REPORTS, NOR DO I TRY TO PROVE THEM WRONG (CAN'T AFFORD TO). BUD: THANKS FOR THE EXCELLENT INFO ABOVE.

There's nothing to try to prove wrong...he was not pleased with his results...the bullet would be better if it was bonded
