|My 2 cents,|
With all the numbers being tossed around here, I still don't think there will ever be an agreement.
Handloader, you like the '06, I don't. Then again I don't like the .308 either.
That's why they make so many different cartridges.
|A little more research done, cape buffalo have been killed with a 7 mag. Can 30-06 claim that?|
|CAPE BUFFALO HUNTING TIPS â€“ What is the best caliber to use?|
Cape Buffalo are thick-skinned animals and the minimum safe caliber is the .375 Magnum. Many people have killed Buffalo with a well placed shot from .270s and 30-06's, one old frontiersman even claimed a head shot with a .22 hornet. However, with Buffalo you can never have too much gun. Today's hunter prefers the large bore double rifles (if you can afford it) as most shots are less than 50 yards and in heavy cover.
