Franz Metz with the 6.5mm BRM Model 97D Rifle in Africa

97D rifle in 6.5mm single shotDear Mr. Brown,
  I just wanted to tell you how great and powerful your 97D Rifle is. I just received my 6.5 BRM rifle two weeks before my hunt to Namibia, Africa. I worked out my loads with VihtaVuori N140 powder with 125 grain Lapua bullets. I said this because the knock down power of this cartridge is unbelievable. In the enclosed pictures of my hunt all of the animals taken were with one shot, and no animal went further than 75 yards. The Gemsbok and
single shot 97D rifle in 6.5mmSpringbuck were taken at 200 yards plus. The black Wildebeest was taken at 100 yards and the Zebra at 50 yards. When I shot the Gemsbok he was moving slowly, when the bullet hit him he dropped to the ground and got up and went 30 yards and dropped. It was almost as though he didn't feel the shot, I noticed the same reaction with the Zebra and the Springbuck. After the falling block rifle in 6.5mm BRMshot, they just moved off not running at full speed. The Black Wildebeest did run when shot but not far, 75 yards or so. My Professional Hunter and I called the 97D my "Pea Shooter" for lack of muzzle blast and recoil. He had never seen such an accurate rifle and could not believe it's knock down power for such a small caliber rifle.
  Most hunters in Africa use 375 H&H Mag and up. I really believe that you need 6.5mm rifle hunting in africato promote your fine rifles for African game. Your rifles and pistols far exceed the Thompson Encore and Contender rifles and pistols. I only came across your rifles and pistols by accident, I also own your 7mm Silhouette and 300 BRM Pistols. You should consider advertising in the SCI magazine. People need to know about your great firearms. Please feel free to use me for a reference anytime.
-Sincerely, Franz H. Metz
