Between the .300 H&H Mag. and .300 Win. Mag., which cartridge is the better design and makes more sense for the hunter? Contributor Philip Massaro examines the pros and cons of each.

Remington no longer chambers the Big Eight in a production rifle, but the cartridge remains a favorite for some who hunt Africa.

An Ode to the .41 Remington Magnum

This classic cartridge is a perfect fit for most handgun hunters. Observant hunters will immediately recognize that the .41 Magnum offers notably better external and terminal ballistics than the .357, yet is slightly more shooter-friendly than the .44.

.300 H&H Magnum

Some despise the .300 H&H for its length, belt, tapered case design and obtuse neck, yet these qualities have kept the round alive for decades.

Head to Head: .300 Win. Mag. vs. .300 Wby. Mag.
