In The Book

Piet Swart with a 101cm (39.75") Eland taken in Namibia in 2005. 

Piet used his 375H&H loaded with 265gr GS HV bullets at 2930fps. The shot was taken at 120 paces and the Eland went down at the shot. The bullet exit is visible on the shoulder.

Zebra

2006

This was an interesting hunt.   Gerard helped Piet to build a custom 22x64 on a Shilen 1:8 twist barrel. The load is a GSC .224" HV bullet of 60gr at 4000fps. The farmer wanted this zebra shot because it was the last one left from a herd he had removed.  It was in a very large area with bad accessibility and areas with dense vegitation, so they called for horses in case the zebra had to be followed up.  The farmer was rather sceptical of the hot rod .224 with it's 60gr bullet.

The riders had to cross through the zebra's territory to get to the gate where Piet and the farmer were waiting.  When the horses came into sight, they were at a gallop with the zebra stallion giving chase!  It was a race to the gate, with the horses making it by about 30 meters!  The zebra stopped short of the gate and checked around for further violations of it's territory and that was when Piet head shot him.

The bullet (left) from the head shot was retrieved from underneath the skin on the far side, after penetrating the skull completely. It retained 50% of it's weight.
