A few weeks ago my dad and I went on a buffalo hunt my dad purchased here in wyoming up the wood river. The shot was only 100 yards or so right behind the ear but the 260gr Partition dropped him instantly. It was pretty fun to watch that big ole' guy hit the ground. His live weight was a little over 3000lbs! My dad with his Sako 375 H&H The head alone weighed roughly 250 lbs Took about an hour to gut him using a tractors help The bucket on that Backhoe is kind of a reference to his size.
