Re: wich 30. caliber

I'm a 300 WSM kinda guy, but agree if you're hoping to take this rifle to Africa, the WM is probably the way to go. The WM has got a whole lot better selection of easy to find ammo in case you need it and the others are way more expensive all the way around.

Re: wich 30. caliber

Since you are talking Africa, I eliminate the .300 RUM as finding that ammunition in the bush is not something I would bet a hunt on.

.300 Win ammunition is available everywhere, but the .300 Weatherby has been popular in Africa for half a century, so .300 Weatherby ammo's fairly widely available in Africa. If you want more performance than a .300 Win, the .300 Weatherby gets my vote.
