Long Range in Africa

Yesterday 06/21 I harvested a Kudu bull at 433m / 473yds with a friends .338 Lapua Mag with 250gr Sierra Gameking. It was shot on the shoulder with a full penetration. The angle of the shot was 20 degrees and ranged with Leupold RXII.

Nice one! Good shooting!

What is the largest animal you can legally hunt with the 338 LM in Africa?
