A comparison of rifle ammunition Calibers used in WWI & WWII
We know in the USA bigger is better! Theses are the standard military calibers used by the U.S.,Germany,Russia, And Italy with the 30/06 being the largest. The 8mm Mauser was very close in size the Italians tried to convert to a larger cartridge for the Carcano (7.35x51)  but it proved to be logistically too hard to supply two calibers to transition during wartime. Of course the Russian 7.62x54 was also a very respectable round.

.950 JDJ
As its name implies, rifles chambered for the cartridge have a bore diameter of 0.950 in (24.1 mm), which would normally classify them as Destructive Devices in the United States However, SSK sought and received a "Sporting Use Exception" to de-regulate the rifles, meaning they can be purchased like any other Title I rifle by a person over age 18 with no felonies on their criminal record.

.45-70 Government (.458, .45-70-405)

The 45-70 Government (.458, .45-70-405) cartridge was developed by the US government in 1873 for the Springfield 1873 trapdoor rifle. It was the replacement for the .50-70-450 cartridge to provide increased range, penetration and accuracy.
Springfield Model 1873
Springfield Model 1873
It is still a popular cartridge today among many big / dangerous game hunters in the 500 or 510 grain bullet as well as for lighter game in the 405 grain version. For hunters of grizzly, elephant,rhino,and Cape Buffalo the 45-70 is a great cartridge for closer shots. The recoil is substantial and hunters will need a bit of practice to develop the shooting skill this gun requires. Marlin and Winchester both produce excellent guns chambered in 45-70. Modern ammo is also readily available from most popular manufactures.
