    Jim Carmichael had an outstanding article on the use of a .30-06 in Africa as the ONLY gun he took. I found it to be a great read and over the years I have learned a great deal from the man. I was sorely disappointed when he retired (he didn't ask me if he could, wait I retired in... never mind) The article can be found at http://www.outdoorlife.com/articles/gear/2007/09/3006-africa.

    Bullets or Caliber rifle ?
    As for caliber, The .30's will work well on the plains game(.30-06,.300 Win Mag). Elk type rounds would be good for this.
