The .256 Mannlicher is very like the .236 Navy, except that its bullet is heavier and its striking force something greater. It has been used extensively abroad but not very much in this country. Almost every species of big game has been killed with the .256 Mannlicher, even to elephants, and at one time it was the fashion to pronounce it more deadly than the big bores. A more extensive use showed this conclusion wrong, but it seems to-have execution sufficient for any of the deer family.
