Buffalo Taken With 500 Linebaugh

This is a picture of a Buffalo that I took with the 500 Linebaugh,shooting 525 grain WLFN flat point hardcast bullets at 1120 fps from my revolvers 6" barrel.The shot was from about 40 t 45 yards.When the bull presented an opportunity,I placed one round through the heart.The bull staggard,stumbled and went down.The others gathered around and begin hooking as if trying to help him up.they actualy got the big bull back to his feet,but he could not remain on all fours and quickly fell again.The entrance hole from the big slug,had blood flowing from it,as well as from the exit. The bullet exited the animal and was not recovered.The wound channel and penetration of these big bore revolvers is nothing short of amazing.The penetration is often more than large rifles and the wound channel has to be seen to be believed

Congrats on the buff John. That is a great photo and one heck of a handcannon. When was your hunt?

John,

Good goin'. That's a lot of eatin'

Good to hear the report on the cartridge and bullet performance. Makes me feel better about my decision to get a 45LC and use hard cast bullets. I haven't done it yet but will before the season. Just a carry gun and defense against things that go bump in the night or argue over a gut pile while I'm still in the vicinity. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
