Texas Hunt


Recommended Posts

dan is that a nilgai. I hear they are tough to kill what did you shoot it with.  nice hunt

Yes it is and yes they are but I had my .257 Weatherby with me as I wasn’t originally going to hunt Nilgai
The recommend .30 cal and up but I have this custom build souped up to 3675 fps with a 100gr Barnes TSX copper bullet
It was a one shot kill at 235 yards through both shoulders
The Nilgai bull made it about 50 yds after he shot and went down
The outfitter and ranch owner who has killed many of them said they had never seen it done
Speed, well constructed bullet and shot placement are key
