How about bringing this old thread up to date.
Bud missed 2020 hunt due a fractured hip.
But, he made a big come back in 2021 with this 43" buff from South Africa with PH Charl van Rooyen (Infinito Safaris), who was his guide.
Charl likes the SAF, so that's what was used. First shot thru the rib cage and exited. Bud hit buff three more times, no more bullet exits, dropped him before he got out of sight. Guess that old push feed M-70 cycles pretty well. David Christman, Delhi, LA, did a great job with action work and fitting the Shilen barrel.
