I'll go for .300 Weatherby Magnum, this caliber was introduced in 1944 & 180 grain bullet gives a velocity of 3110 fps. Other than this i also like 7x57mm mauser which was introduced in 1892 and this caliber brought a revolution among the hunters & big bore shooters. If we talk about rifle then my preference will be John Rigby or Holland & Holland.

a 275 is not a big bore chief.
375 H&H is where the line is drawn, all calibers bigger than this are big bores.

The Nitro Express forum also classifies .375 and above as 'big bore' rifles....

A saving grace is that the .30-06 is permitted in big bore competitions here in India...
A gun by your side is better than police in the neighbourhood.

People who value privileges above principles, soon lose both.
There comes a point in your life when you realize: Who matters, Who never did, Who won't anymore...
And who always will....

From 6mm to .375 mm its called medium big bore, and above .375 mm are big bores but in big bore shooting compitition 6 mm BR and above calibers are called big bores and permitted in the compitition.

The 375 you mention above, is this a mm size or .375 of an inch. Had it been a millimeter size there would be no dot before the numbers and would read as 375. pls. clarify :?:
