Panthera leo is the king of beasts and a male lion weighs an average of 220 kilograms with the female tipping the scales at an average of a 160 kilograms. A male lion stands an average of 4 feet high at the shoulder and is about 10 feet from muzzle to tail. A lion charge is notoriously hard to stop and when wounded a lion will into an almost unstoppable force intent on retribution upon the individula responsible.
Rifles in 375 are the legal minimum for hunting Lion in most African countries. A 375 cannot always be guaranteed to reliably stop Lions with the first shot, so if you have something larger that you can shoot accurately without being intimidated by its recoil it will be the better choice. When following up a wounded Lion be aware that they are ambush animals and will lie in wait for their pursuers when wounded. When attacking the hunting party they will single out one member of the party and do their utmost to vent their anger on that individual. These lion charges are extremely difficult to stop and a large calibre rifle ideally in the double rifle configuration will most probably be the most effective weapon in such a scenario.
