Default European Cartridge Series - 9x57 Mauser

Since I've had a an ongoing love affair with this caliber (whether in inches or metric) for many, many years...I can say that I agree, somewhat, with assessment of it's abilities by the author.

I feel that this caliber at moderate to moderate plus velocities comes as close to any as 'an all around cartridge'. Jacketed for the larger game and cast lead for lesser game.

Since Bell was so successful with 7mm and 'solids', I cannot help but think that this would work just as well even in Africa...excepting dangerous game. I would value the opinion of those who have hunted plains game in Africa with regard to this cartridge.
