Well, I certainly can't blame you for going to something else at this point.
 A 200 grain Sierra Gameking in the right place is plenty good for kudu-sized critters anyway. It probably won't penetrate as deeply as the Partition might have, but if you choose your shot halfway cautiously, it won't need to, either.
 I'm pretty sure that you will probably not need more than about 8 shots to kill one!        Howdy

No doubt......that rifle seems to like the Game Kings.
 
What was your range for that group, 100 M ?
 
300 H&H have always been known as an accurate rifle.

Man, to get onto the black box is just a "click to the left and a jump to the right ..Yeah,,yeah yeahhhh ) With courtesy from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
 
I was shooting for groupings. Each load impacts at a different point. So once I have the load, I will zero the rifle and kill that black box.

Nice .  Roll%20on%20Floor%20Laughing  It all makes sense now.

On another site I go to when a person puts up a dime or something to show the group size this guy always says good shooting but you missed the dime.  So I just had to make some smart remark.  Big%20Smile

Well here's my .02. The partition bullets were designed for deep penetration of large game and still give decent expansion (something I read somewhere). I don't think accuracy was the prime concern of the design. I don't know how the bullet is made, but it seems to me that with the partition of jacket material between the two lead cores would be difficult to swage consistantly. There is to great of a chance for voids or varying jacket thickness, which could cause the of the bullet to vary from one side to another. This would cause the bullet to be out of balance as it spins in flight (like a tire out of balance) and have a negative effect on accuracy. This is my theory, and it may explain why you had a good group (everything was balanced), and why your other groups have negative preassure.
I think the partitions were intended for large tough skinned animals at ranges less than 200yds. Just my theory.

 Generally true, Beltfed.
 Even Nosler states that the Partition is usually not as accurate in most rifles as the Ballistic Tips, etc, although they don't normally go south as badly as they did in this case, either.

Hey 8 shots.....if you have any of those Noslers left, sent them across the pond to me!  I'll trade you one for one, with some of those absolutely worthless, pieces of dog crap, Barnes XBT's, that fly through the air like a Timberdoodle,  from my rifle barrel.    You probably have some of those birds down in South Africa....They are migratory.

That's funny, Mojo. I can vouch for the flight path of a woodcock..................very erratic.

P.S.  Shotguns work better for woodcock than rifles unless you can shoot like pyro.

So that is why you shoot so good pyro.....you are forced to!  No scattergun.  Keep away from those 12 guage mags if you are recoil shy.
