April 9th, 2011, Zimbabwe. This 12 thousand pound elephant, 80 lb tusks and over 7 feet of ivory, each side was taken with the Hornady .500 Nitro Express, DGS! The Double gun was Butch Searcy's cannon! On a hot day, this giant was aware of our presence and a left quartering away shot to the lungs was the first shot, followed by a brain shot from the side that dropped him in his tracks! I collected the lead and boy they did their job! YOU MUST USE HORNADY AMMO WITH ANY DANGEROUS GAME, ---- IF YOU WANT TO SURVIVE!
