BIG BORE, HIGH POWER CARTRIDGES

Rifles for Grizzly Bear and Big Game of Asia and Africa. Lions, Tigers, Rhino, Hippo, Elephant Guns. Calibers..405 Winchester, .318 Westley Richards. .883 Jeffery, .400, .404, .450, .475, .500, .577, .600.

Most of the cartridges that are included in this class are built in Europe. They are of such variety and numbers as to preclude mention of more than a few, and those of a sort that American sportsmen might have occasion to use. I have seen fit to set the minimum caliber of this class at $18 and the striking force demanded at not less than 3,000 foot pounds. This is the minimum; nearly all the cartridges are larger, up to the .600 with muzzle energy of over 8,000 pounds.

From the best information obtainable it seems that an African sportsman would consider energy of from 3,000 to 4,000 pounds about the right thing for the larger African antelope, lions, and tigers. A striking force of from 4,000 to 5,000 pounds would do for rhino, hippo, and buffalo. Above 5,000 the weapon might be considered as purely an elephant gun.

It might be noted here that our own .405 Winchester is the baby of the lot, though it has been used very effectively on lions, leopards, rhinos, hippos, buffalo, and all game smaller than elephants by Roosevelt, White, and other Americans. In this country we are in the habit of considering the .405 a sort of hand cannon, but it is all a matter of comparison. The .600 Jeffrey strikes at one hundred yards with three times the force of the .405.
