 Recoil, but that doesn't matter to you.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Well it doesnt seem odd to me since these are the calibers people select for the same general purpose.  It's not like we are compareing 17HMR to 375H&H and 10mm which are all quite different in purpose.

I think that is the point, to show the advantages and disadvantages of each.
