      The Westley Richards is a real old African classic. Largely forgotten today, it was one of the most important of the pre-war sporting calibres. Never, of course, so widely used as the cheap and ubiquitous, it was nonetheless one of the most popular of what was termed the 'medium' bore sporting cartridges in the Africa of years ago.   The Winchester Defender is a bonded design with a notched jacket, designed for a balance of expansion and penetration that will get you out of trouble. Upon impact, the Defender’s nose splits into six pieces for expansion up to times the caliber. Sig Sauer’s Elite Performance ammunition features the Sierra V-Crown premium : Philip Massaro. Webley & Scott Model boxlock ejector.
