The currently running thread about camp guns sent me off on another tangent of thought. What cartridge and rifle platform combination provides the best ratio of power (measured by total KE delivered from a full magazine) as compared to weight? Off the top of my head I thought a 44 magnum lever gun would be a contender because of the 10 round magazine and the relatively light weight of the gun. Or maybe an AR in 458 SOCOM...or maybe a Ruger American in 450 Bushmaster. I have a BLR in 358 Win that’s pretty light and the 358 carries a lot of oomph. Or maybe it’s a light bolt gun holding five 35 Whelen rounds, or three 300 magnums. Or more likely, a 12 gauge shotgun with slugs. I have no real reason to need to know this, I just think it’s an interesting question.
