WOW! Look at the wide crazy differences!
So what can one do one of the other's can't? It's NOT "same projectile, same performance" I was getting at but simply that one can have one of those and not have a need for the others. Kinda like having a .30-06 and "needing" a .308. Thought this thread was about what cartridges would be needed... If so, there's a handful of cartridges than can fulfill about any sporting requirement.
their far enough apart to create performance gaps.
