Chris Ruytenberg of Port Elizabeth with a 26" Impala shot on the farm "Koedoeskuil" in the Thabazimbi district. The head shot was at about 100 metres and taken with a 30-06 rifle hand-loaded with 150 grain GS Custom HP bullets at 3000 fps. (308150HP.014) Though this was an easy shot, Chris maintains that the accuracy that he achieves with GS Custom HP bullets, enables him to take longer shots with much more
confidence than ever before.
