50 B&M Super Short Meets Australian Buffalo
There has been a long time statement that is no longer on this site. I stated that I did not consider the 50 B&M Super Short suitable for the "Heavies", elephant, hippo, and buffalo! I have cleared that statement now, as we have witnessed the 50 B&M Super Short slam big Australian buffalo to the dirt.
On our recent trip "Down Under", with our friend Paul Truccolo, my oldest son Matthew Daniel, did his work with a 50 B&M Super Short, loaded with both CEB Solids & Raptors, and North Fork CPS and FPS bullets. The 50 B&M Super Short was extremely effective, and hammered buffalo to the ground.
Paul, Sam Rose, and myself were very impressed with it's performance, and the performance of Matthew handling the rifle and making the shots.
Matt took an extremely large bodied bull, at least 20% bigger than any cape buffalo. He used two 375 gr North Fork (Expanding) CPS and 1 of the new nose profile 375 gr North Fork Solids. Both CPS ended up a couple of inches apart on the far side shoulder, and the solid exited after over 40 inches of dead straight penetration. Incredible performance from such a tiny package.
