So , A gunshop in Adelaide (Australia) said that the 7mm-08 is popular with African shooters living there. Is it a common round in Africa? What about the others? I've read on the 7x57, sounds like a classic. Yesterday i read about the ,284Winchester another 7mm bore, and the 7mm-08 AI People I've met with 7mm rifles are pretty happy with performance It seems that for hunting the 7x57 is well liked. The 7mm-08 equals it and the 7mmRm is fine but there are other 7mm magnums too. do these others show any real world performance for hunters?
