I've just come back from Mozambique, went there to hunt hippo with my bow and learned of a very very big croc that hangs out in a pool. I am considering going back for him and want to take my .300 win mag in case we have to set up for a "long shot" by African standards. I am talking about 200 yards, definately no more than 300. Has anyone used a 168gn SMK on a croc? It's a head shot only hunt, but the skull is fairly thick. I needs to be placed very accurately because the target is quite small, which is the reason I am leaning towards the 168SMK - it is the most accurate bullet out of my rifle at 0.3MOA. The other thing that might interest me is that I can get a free hippo if I shoot him from a ways off. The concession owner was so intrigued by the possibility and basically a non believer that he said I could have a free hippo if I shoot him from 400 or 500 yards. You're looking at a 4" - 6" target there so it's not that hard a shot, but I'm wondering again, if the 220gn SMK or the 210 Berger hunting bullet will be up to it. Maybe a good monometal bullet?
