Location of hunt: South Africa
Date: April 2010
Game taken: Eland
Ammunition used: Federal Premium Vital-Shok .300 Win. Mag. 200-grain Trophy Bonded Bear Claw
Skinny: On this successful safari, the Federal .300 Win. Mag. 200-grain TBBC load worked beautifully. The highlight was the 220 yard Cape Eland - with both horns over 40 inches; this giant ambled about 150 yards after a single shot through the heart and both lungs, and the perfectly expanded bullet was recovered inside the chest cavity. The shots ranged from 100 yards on a small Springbok to 280 yards on a Greater Kudu. For the most part, these were all one shot kills, and the recovered bullets were uniformly perfect mushrooms.
