I estimated the distance to be about 100 yards but, my hunting partner estimated 80 yars so take your pick.
The load was Buffalo Bore 420 grain LFN hard cast bullet and of coures full penetration with the bullet exiting and blowing snow up into the air on the off side. The 475 is extremely effective as I found out back in 88 with a Moose and a bear

Re: Buffalo With The 475

That is a great rd. I shot one a few years ago at Johns house in Cody. I thought I was shooting at abou 100 yds. After the shots he told me it was 175. I have wanted one ever since that day!
