My son, Bret and I were shooting on Aboriginal land in the outback of the Northern Territory. Feral buffalo are numerous and they are doing substantial environmental damage. If the buffalo and the other feral introduced species are not removed, Australia will be faced with a highly degraded landscape. Although individual efforts are of minimal significance in the overall effort to extirpate the estimated 500,000 buffalo in the northern territory, we tried to do what we could…
Our rifles we a wildcat .41 caliber bolt action loaded with the 360 gr North Fork Soft Point and a 500/416 Nitro Express Krieghoff double rifle equipped with a Doctor Optik red dot sight loaded with 400 gr North Fork Soft points. We took 40 rounds for each rifle and another 50 rounds of 375 cal. North Fork Soft points for our outfitter’s backup 375 JRS.
In all we killed 40 buffalo…(all meat harvested for consumption). The rifles and bullets performed perfectly…This was our second trip to Australia using North Fork soft points. The bullets perform so consistently, and shoot so accurately in our rifles that I can’t imagine seeking superior performance from any other bullet. I am a believer.
