Choice between 2 rifles for Africa
I'm going to Africa in April and I have a .308 and a .270 Short Mag. Looking at all the ballistics charts it seems that the 270 short mag carries more energy and is faster than the .308. However it is a smaller bullet (140 gr versus 168 gr). I haven't seen anyone on this forum discuss the .270 short mag and compare it to the other calibers. I plan on harvesting a kudu, Gemsbok, and Impala. If you had to pick a gun to take, which one would to take? the 308 or the 270 WSM?
