Shootist43Kawshik, while a 243 Winchester is in a slightly different league than a 220 Swift it can hardly be classified as a DG rifle. Obviously it worked for your client "this time." I'm of the opinion that your amazement at that time was equally matched by mine when I read your account of this hunt. To date, my Win. Mod 70 Featherweight in 243 has only hunted paper, although admittedly quite well. That being said, if I were ever in a position to hunt a Royal Bengal Tiger, rest assured that it would not be with my trusty 243 Win. I'm looking forward to reading Poton Kahn's posts.
You are a most sensible gentleman. Sportsmen lile this client were one in a hundre. For mere mortals, such as you and l, l would personally not care to tackle these beasts with anything smaller than a 9.3 millimeter mauser.
In Poton's case, he would go after these beasts with ICI Kynoch 12 bore Spherical Ball cartridges.
