One that meets your states caliber laws and goes bang and puts rounds inside a 2" circle at 100 yards.

I'm going to have to go with the 30-06 without specific details on how far your shooting or what your shooting at

If you are going to Africa a .460 Weatherby Magnum is hard to beat!

Since it i such a short range a 25-06 and up should do the job just fine. I would personally use the .270, .308 or the .30-06.
