It was used almost exclusively in single-shot and double-express rifles for hunting in Tropics or hot climates in general and is associated with the Golden Age of African safaris and Indian shikars. A prominent user was Frederick Courteney Selous, whom used this cartridge in a Farquharson rifle was the inspiration for the character of Allan Quatermain.
