After 1 year of learning from all of you, my first post.
I've shot a couple of baboons over the last year with my 25-06 with 75gr Vmax. The result has pretty much been the same each time. Very little penetration, with massive entry hole expansion. The bullet has "exploded" each time. The photo's show a fair size baboon, approx. 40kg, that was shot at 373 yards. Only the top of his back and head was showing. Bullet impact just below the head, on the spine. The bullet barely penetrated, but blew a 2" crater on the entry position. The second baboon I got this year (unfortunately no pics), was a frontal shot on the breastbone at 390 yards with pretty much the same result.
Am I expecting too much from the Vmax ? Both baboons went down on the spot, but I don't fancy chasing after a 40kg wounded baboon. [image]
