The development of the big-bore rifle

If we trace the development of the big-bore rifle as we know it today, either in double- or magazine-rifle format, we find ourselves on an interesting parallel with history. Just as warfare spurned developments in the firearms field, so did exploration during earlier times and the inevitable big-game hunting that accompanied such exploration in many of the formerly wild places on Planet Earth, writes FRANCOIS VAN EMMENES.
