Kevin Robertson is back again to talk about the “classic” Africa hunting cartridges today. We cover the pros, cons, and recommended uses for almost everything from the 243 Winchester all the way up to the 600 and 700 Nitro Express in this episode. Among other things, we talk about how hunting in Africa is different from hunting in north America, the unique characteristics of some of the most popular species of game in Africa, and how those things dictate ideal ballistic performance for the situation.
