It often comes down to one's preference for an individual rifle.
I agree that the rifle /cartridge combination is what creates the appeal for a given cartridge. I would add two to this list:
-22 LR Savage TR. small game ,pests
-223 AR platform. Coyote, varmints to 500 yards
-6.5x284 Cooper 52. Varmints to med/large game, short to long range
-375 H&H Whitworth Mauser. Dangerous NA and African game
-450 H&H Double Rifle H&H. Close range African dangerous game
Use and shooting volume follows this order.
