I will race everybody with my 30-378 Wby. Mag. 180 grain Nosler BT, in Velocity and Energy to 1000 yards.  Sweetness.  I love it!  Any ballistics needed, let me know.  CPC loads an even hotter shell, but I still prefer the factory ammo, more accurate.  Maybe I should go with a 6.5-300Wby that I saw loaded on Long range hunter (.com}.  Sweetness!  I love those fast movers, like a F-16 jet.

With all the different cartridges around, they'll never be one popular enough, and the game laws in Africa no longer allow the use of anything smaller than .375, so smaller rounds will never get the chance to kill elephant and cape buffalo like these have.

Actually, I was just reading on the subject and the game laws require a .375 and up only on Cape Buffalo and larger animals.  But, for smaller game, as the articles I read, any rifle that we use here for shooting deer would be adequate.  I hope I was not reading out of date material, but the samething was said on probably 10 different  safari websites.

I think he was talking about buffalo & elephants as plains game is still fair game for most rifles. But "back when" people really did take on Buffs and hefelumps with small bores. good ? Stupid ? all I have with me?.... that's why I carry my 375 H&H when hunting mulies in the black timber where Mr. Griz also lives.

When you decide to go after Browns with 22 RF let me know. I'll bring my 400 H&H to back you up. It will make a great video for "my space". (you have to pay my airfare but I will accompany your remains home)

Never mess with a Mom defending he kids be she Human, winged or 4 legged. I remember back in NY we has some jerk in a Kayak bother a Swan and her Cygnets (spelling?). She attacked and almost drowned him. Then he wanted the wardens to kill her! He got a big fine instead and his Kayak confiscated. Sometimes it just all comes together!

Yeah and that one sequence really looked like a flying bad guy's arm. The one of the boys on the roof with the AR 308 (??) was real and neat.

guess who said this? hint he's dead and actually shot people as well as game.

"As we read the ads, we notice a proliferation of newly variable cartridge types. We do not need new cartridge types. We have had excellent cartridge types for practically all of the 20th century, and there is nothing that the brand new "4.27 Super Hydra Short" will do that a 30-06 (dated 1906) or a 270 (dated 1924) will not do every bit as well. We do not need new cartridges, but we have needed new weapons in which to shoot them, and that need has only been fitfully met. A striking example of this situation is the venerable 45-70 cartridge, which was an excellent innovation back in the 1880s and is well worth revival today, as we see within the excellent Wild West Co-Pilot.

The other striking example is, of course, the Steyr Scout, which has turned out to be such a good idea that it is commercially too far ahead of its time. Delivered in caliber 308 (7.62 NATO), it will do anything the shooter can do, which fact dismays the marketer who would like the customer to be dissatisfied with whatever cartridge his current rifle shoots. But the production of toys is a function of sales rather than excellence, so the aim of the salesman is to offer something which is different, rather than better. Of course, salescraft suggests that the new product must be better, and it is up to the customer to solve this issue on his own."
