That's the first animal I have shot at with the AE. The shot was about seven yards. I couldn't believe it when she ran out of sight. I was starting to think I missed. But it was only seven yards. I was about 20 foot up so the angle was steep. When I got down to look for blood I found a piece of the heart and some lung tissue where she was standing. The blood trail couldn't have been better. I still can't believe she made it 50 yards. Oh well I'm glad I didn't hit the shoulder. Entered on the edge of the backstrap just behind the right shoulder and exited the other side below where the brown meets the white. Franchise any idea of a kill count on that barrel?

Eric, I'm not really sure. It took a Yak bull, a Nilgai, a few boar & exotics and around 30 or so WT deer. I knew you would be impressed with the 50 AE when you were able to use it. Those that say it is useless for hunting simply just don't know because they have never hunted with a 50 AE or they are just nuts!

That's cool, good shooting Eric congrats! I've got a .50 AE cylinder (along with a 500 jrh cylinder) on a jack Huntington freedom arms conversion. I'd like to try it out but haven't had the opportunity yet. Hopefully soon. Smile
