Dear Mr Möller,
I’m home from a rather successful hunting trip in
Namibia!I usedyour older MJG 7626 .300 WSM in my Tikka T3.
My load was 4,21 g Hodgdon Varget and Federal 210 primer in Winchester
cases. This load gives a very steady 1.090 m/s chronographed about 3 m from
LM: Good for the Plains!I shot both Blue- and Black Wildebeest with frontal heart
shots at 90 – 120 m. Zebra, Oryx and Springbock with somewhat angled
side shots, also in the heart from 160 - 180 m. All animals went down
instantly. They stopped trembling in about 30 s or less. One restbolt was
found (from the blue gnu) all others went through. On exanimating the
carcasses, the meat loss was, as you advertised, minimal. The exit holes in
the hide was also very small. Attached a few photos from the out- and
inside of the Springbock, and the heart of the Blue Wildebeest.

got very interested about these bullets, and he is planning on writing a
short article for the African Hunting Gazette. I referred to your
internet site to look further. If you had any more material, in English or
Afrikaans, it would be highly appreciated.
LM: Waidmannsheil. Thanks for Your Notice.
