I used Hornady ammunition on my recent trip to Zimbabwe. I carried both the expanding and solid bullets for my old Wm. Evans .450 NE that was built in 1908. My PH, Frik Muller of Pro Safaris also carried his old Wesley Richards .450 NE. The cartridges performed flawlessly and I was able to bring down a nice cape buffalo. The buff ended up being chosen as the “Zimbabwe 2009 Buffalo of the Year”. The skinners were able to recover one of the solids.
Thanks again for such a great product.
