Member Bob Thiry is in the process of building a rifle on the interesting British mid range .375 Flanged Nitro Express cartridge that saw some use in Africa. It equalled the Dutch Mannlicher Schönauer 9.5x57 which was quite popular. Both were somewhat underpowered for elephant under challenging conditions of shooting angles and were overshadowed by the 9.3x62 and the .465 H&H, the latter which which was only available in a double rifle.
This is an invitation for Bob to repeat his blog post about the .375 NE here in this category and keep us up to date with the project.
Anyone with any unknown older cartridges / rifles at hand, please share with us - there are so many interesting - some very potent - old German, Swiss, Portuguese, and British chamberings that even today equals and often exceed modern offerings with the same calibre bullet. The 6.5x68S based on the very potent 8x68S case is an example, as are the potent performers based on the 7x64 Brenneke case opened to 8mm and 9.3mm - the latter which equals the British .375 H&H in every respect.
