In this episode, Kevin Robertson and I cover the most popular .40 caliber safari cartridges and discuss their history, legacy, their strengths and weaknesses, and their recommended uses in detail. We discuss almost everything from the 450/400 all the way up to the 470 Nitro Express in this episode (to include some more obscure offerings like the 500/416 and the 416 Taylor as well as old standbys like the 416 Rigby and 458 Win Mag).
