Product: Hornady 9.3 X 74R 286 gr. SP-RP

When first spotted, we mistook this exceptional gemsbok bull for a cow, based on horn length. After a more thorough look we realized it was not a cow at all. The first shot was lasered at 243 yards, the bullet struck just behind the shoulder and passed through. The finishing shot fired entered on the right shoulder and was recovered under the hide on the left rear quarter, retained weight was 232.4 grains and which is 81.3%, that's after penetrating through over 4 feet of one of the toughest African antelope there is. Hornady's new 9.3 X 74R ammo is right on the money.
