January 2009 - Classic "Heart Shot"
Hey guys, I am using your HV bullets in my 9.3x62 this year - though a couple of animals were shot, it was nothing special to
write about (broad side shots with regular results). However, I am just back from tracking a boar that was shot
by a friend the previous night and hit in the front leg.
We started to track him at 9am. After a couple of clicks and hours later, he finally made a short return trail and a hook to
the left and uphill. I knew he was close. About 100m further the dog lifted the nose, so I let the dog loose and games and fun
began. I gave him a longitudinal shot from behind with a 230gr GSHV that knocked him on his snout. The bullet didn't exit, but
its penetration was close to 5 feet. See the picture. The distance was 30m and the bullet was doing about 2550fps at impact.

used for sport shooting. All GS Custom Bullets are coated.
