Without stating the importance of caliber choice 30-06!
OK, lots of good advice. Looks like the 30 cal gets the nod.
How many of you have actually taken a cat the size of a leopard? (No, your overfed house tabby doesn't count.) I've only hunted a cougar, but he was taken with a Ruger 44 Mag Super Blackhawk.

I have a 300 RCM with a stainless steel 20in barrel. I put a 2x7 Redfield scope on it. It also has
open sights. The beauty of this little rifle is it does not have the rebated rim that the wsm and
rsaum have so it feeds nicer and reloads easier. I can load it so it shoots like a 308 win. or
power her up to close to 300 win mag. performance. Regardless of what Hornady says it does not
equal the 300win. I can get around 3000fps with 165 grain bullets and a easy 2800 with the
180 nosler partition. Not bad out of a 20in barrel. Cut the barrel that short on a 300win mag
and it probably won't shot much faster. I shot eight animals in Namibia from springbock to kudu and never felt the need for more rifle. I had a 338 win mag. with me but never used it. I think it would be a great choice for leapords and would make a nice mate to your 416 ruger. I myself may get a 375 ruger someday
