The 20th Century's Top Rifle Cartridge
Rifle cartridges have many uses, target, varment, military, hunting, big game hunting..... There is no top cartirdge for everything. But since this is Africa hunting .com we are attending then lets narrow it down to the point of our main interest "hunting africa and big game". My opinion is that the .375 H+H is the top hunting / big game hunting cartridge of the 20th century. I would bet that it if a vote was taken it would win be a landslide. Going Back to Laynes list at least half of the cartridges on his list don't belong there by anyones estimation. The 30-06 though is certainly a fine cartridge and no one can argue with that. As far as the .303 - 3006 debate goes there is no contest over which has killed more game. In the world the 303 is many times more common and used over the past 100 years than the 06.
