Boomsticks: Bad Idea #352,179
I love my .405 Win rifle. I like the round. Factory loads toss a 300 grainer at 2200fps; more than enough wallop for anything in the Lower 48 and most African game, too. It has that cool Teddy Roosevelt panache about it.
Using it to go after an elephant, however, is a splendid way to wind up as pachyderm toejam.
