    It's Gert's black powder only hunt, and I bought 50 shells 3mm and 50 shells 3,5 mm.

    The only ones I could get.

    I have no idea, how many we will need.

    If we can get by without symmetry in numbers but with Designers/Manufactures. (It almost seems blasphemous to include the following.:()

    257 Weatherby
    270 Weatherby
    300 Weatherby
    340 Weatherby
    378 Weatherby
    460 Weatherby

    Choose three:oops:

    - or -

    6.5x58V

    404J

    30-06


    Before you discard this out of hand. Consider the year they were developed.

    6.5x58V - 1904

    404J - 1905

    30-06 - 1906

    Another try on "same manufacturer", although the first one is debatably a Mauser.

    275 Rigby
    350 Rigby
    416 Rigby
    450 Rigby
