My question is, do you think there is an advantage to a 300 for plains game, that justifies the extra recoil of this round compared to the 30-06? I am very comfortable with a 30-06, and i can shoot a 300, but honestly, it is less pleasant, particularly from prone. I have read some people say there isn't any real world advantage, and that the 30-06 can do anything the 300 can, particularly given the shorter ranges of most african plains game shots. What do those with experience think? Thank you all.
