    The one on the right is indeed 375 Flanged, BZ mate. The other isn't 375 Ruger though...

    And you'd be right! Always thought the 376 should have been more popular.

    I couldn't remember the calibre but could remember it was a Schubarth, so I googled Schubarth cartridge (honest that's all) and I can now say it is a .58 Schubarth.

    The word "obscure" doesn't even begin to describe that one.

    Ah. You may be on to something there. I'm pretty sure it's not much bigger than that.

    I believe it is German. IIRC they played with some "Hyper-velocity" stuff before they developed the 13mm AT rifle.

    You'd be right Drhall. It's the 7.92x94 Patronen; 225gr at 4000fps. I would imagine penetration on game would be adequate ;)

    The 7.92x107 is interesting also.
