    For the 30-06 what was wrong with the old 220 grain load. Sure the new bonded bullets should be very good, but for self defense what was wrong with the old 220 grain round nose at close range.

    Its not about how fast you can load, but about how well you can shoot ..... Someone being saved by a speed load is not something that has happened with any regularity. Gabe Suarez

    when you consider that the .303 is responsible for a good number of elephant kills by British hunters I think itís safe to say itís capable of taking on any threat...

    I lurk in an old fart's forum. Someone there made the statement that the .303 has killed more game animals, world-wide, than any other cartridge. Yeah, if you start to think about it, that's probably right...

    Probably yes since belgium only had the congo their police and military groups would have likely not used british guns. The french had a lot of africa, but a lot of it is close to the Sahara between north africa and Mediterranean and not so much game. The brits has a lot of prime hunting areas for sure. Then the brits also had India and canada for a while and the french indochina.
