This October marked the 2nd Annual JRH Holiday, sometimes referred to as the Bovine Bash where handgun hunters descend upon Hondo, Texas at Action Outdoor Adventures for some live bullet testing on really big game. The emphasis here is bullet/caliber testing. It was attended this year by some folks on here that you will recognize. The whole point is to test calibers and bullets in the best media known to man. In the course of two and half days, a dozen or so animals bought the farm (so to speak) almost triggering a strike by the skinners' union. Boy did they have their hands full. I will post initial results with more detail to follow. First up and first animal downed was this water buffalo tag teamed by Jack Huntington (JRH) and yours truly with .500 JRHs (imagine that). Mine was my custom Bisley by Huntington, while Jack was shooting a BFR in .500 JRH. Jack was shooting Buffalo Bore 425 grain loads but also had a couple of Punch bullet loads in for just in case. I was shooting 440 grain Buffalo Bore loads with Punch bullets in my cylinder as well. He didn't go down immediately as we buggered initial shots a bit on the moving animal and things got a bit dicey in the thick stuff going in after him. He did fall however. Another view: Forum member and handgun hunter and a half, tradmark shot this axis deer with his .41 Mag FA83 at about 45 yards with 210 grain Swift A-frames. Jordan, a member of the JRH Advanced Gunsmithing team shot this wild hog with a rifle (gasp!) in .30-30 Ackley Improved. The results were decisive to say the least! And with that, day one came to a close. Standby for days two and three.
