According to 100 other posts on here the only bullets good for anything above ground squirrels is the swift a frame or Barnes buster....


I am so sick of hearing "A-frame" that I refer to that bullet as a Swift... Don`t get me wrong... its a great bullet but some people just ran it into the ground....

The 454 handload Reeder used to take his buff had a Sierra 300gr JFP over 25.5grs of 2400 shot from a 7 1/2" FA`s m-83. The photo shows the same bullet recovered from a blue wildebeest (taken during same hunt) losing 11.0grs. According to the handloader the recovered bullet from the buff could be relaoded again.....

Hey Doc, How much did the buff weigh that you shot with your 475 and the 275gr X ?????

James, didn't have scales handy! This was a very large cow buff about 90% the size of my #11 SCI bull. I was wanting the experiemce/excitement of hunting buff again, so I killed 2 cows on this trip significantly cheaper than my one bull combined.
