In this episode, I cover the most popular 9.3mm and 375 caliber CIP and/or SAAMI certified cartridges and discuss their history, legacy, their strengths and weaknesses, and their recommended uses in detail. Most of those cartridges are very popular for hunting Africa, but as you’ll learn here shortly, that’s not the case with all of them. Indeed, a couple are uniquely American or European hunting cartridges and a couple of others aren’t even hunting cartridges at all!
