I was one of a few lucky enough to be able to add some more fresh meat to the freezer I got the chance to do a once in a lifetime buffalo hunt yesterday. It was a great time & Im very happy I had the chance. I was the 1st person out of about 30 to use a shotgun against this 1,000+ pounder. I used a Beretta 390 12 gauge with a 3x9x40mm Leupold mounted on a fully rifled/cantilever Hastings aftermarket barrel. Ammo was Federals 3 mag 1 ounce Barns Expander Sabot. Distance was a little over 50 yards. The 1st shot dropped the buffalo in its tracks. To speed things up a bit I was instructed to use my G19. 2 rounds behind the right ear did the trick. It was a very humane kill. Thought Id share with some fellow hunters!
