I am going to video my hunt. I will be using my Encore in 416 Rigby with a barnes X 300 gr. bullet. I was at the range and shot 25 rounds yesterday. I got 1 1/2 to 2 inch groups at 100 yards. At 150 yards I was able to hit 2 clay targets with one shot each. The gun is very accurate and recoil is very manageable after I put the mercury recoil suppressor in the stock and installed a sims recoil pad. I will post my hunts result here.bigbore442001 said:Please give us all the details once you are back.Such as how difficult was the hunt? What did you use for a gun?
Civet go here and you can see the Water Buffalo. www.bradyranch.com.Civet said:I've thought about going there myself for water buffalo.
I know there is a difference in horn styles...curly and swept back. Do you know which is which.
I'll be interested in hearing from you how hard of a hunt it was also if there was any real danger involved. Sure I know any animal that big can stomp you into the mud if they want, but in the real world sometimes these ranch hunts aren't as 'realistic' as they might be in the wilds. I do know that they can be nasty. When in Argentina for work a few years back we would see them and the locals always said "STAY AWAY" cause they could be feeding peaceful like one minute and trying to turn you to mush the next.
good Luck waiting to hear your report
