Not a big bear cartidge maybe not a good moose cartidge and surely not a good choice of smaller game but a good generial use one.
I man everyone new where I grew up used a 22 hornet for all most his whole life. Man has made more good kills than should be possible on trophy sized hogs, black bear, deer and gators. For him that was his perfect cartidge.
And your point is????
I am not saying which caliber/cartridge is best, what I am saying is if you keep an open mind and use science you will find which caliber/cartridge is the 'best' for a given application!
The problem is there are many people who are uninformed and/or do not understand terminal ballistics to even chose the 'best' bullet for a given application, let alone the right 'combination' of platform/caliber/bullet!!!
