I'm relatively new to stalking and am seeking some advice on a which calibre to look for. Now before I get shouted at, I have looked at the other posts and I am in a seemingly relatively unique position as I will shortly be moving out to South Africa for a 2 / 3 year period so I need something that will also be suitable for plains game.
Initially I was looking at a .270 or .308 (the latter being easier for me as I already shoot a lot of TR and have all the reloading kit etc) and dabbling with the idea of a 7mm08. However, having read the plains game posts on here and elsewhere it seems the recommendation is for 30-06 but this seems a little too much, certainly for the smaller species in the UK.
Any suggestions? If at all possible I only want one rifle as Mrs E isn't hugely keen on filling up the cabinet (especially as she's got two rifles in there already!).
