    Yeah, the first thing we ever killed with the 416 was a ground squirle. It took like 3 more years to draw blood again on a moose then two years ago it killed a little white tail buck. I will have to take it out some more to get a few more critters underneath its belt.

    I'll add a couple for you:

    204 Ruger - if you like pure speed and explosive performance this is a great gun

    470 Nitro Express - you can't beat sure POWER, also fun at public ranges. Rifles on the left, pistols on the right, going from left to right with the 470 last it sounds like...

    crack, crack, crack, pop, pop, pop, whoooom!!!, people start to look then.
