I've been hunting with another guy I met on a forum.
As soon as I met him I knew I'd never be his best mate but we still had a good hunt and I knocked over 4 goats that weekend.
The other guys I've shot with are all excellent.
The trick is to find a time they can come and since we're all busy that can be hard.
The "30-30 made in 1830
" guy seemed happily ignorant of pretty much everything.
He also complained about the fact that he couldn't get his '94 to group any smaller than minute-of-elephant and then proclaimed that he probably should've done some load development........
At my suggestion that the magazine tube attachment also caused accuracy problems at times he shrugged and just implied that '94s were inherrantly inaccurate.
Now, I'm no great lover of Winchester lever guns but I'm not that stupid.
As far as nomenclature for rifle cartridges I reckon the British are the worst.
Since there were a number of basically boutique gunsmithing companies like H&H, Rigby & Gibbs that created their own cartridges they stuck their own names onto the cartridge or in the case of the big bores simply Nitro Express, which may or may not be based on a previous N.E. case.
Most American cartridges, bless their little parochial cotton socks, are based on PARENT American cartridges(i.e.270 & 30-06; 22-250 & 250 Savage) or for the older ones are calibre/powder-load(e.g. 45-70, 30-40) and sometimes a combination (i.e. 25-20 & 32-20).
There are a few different ones but mostly it's easy to identify.
The only major cartridge that I know of named because of it's date of invention is the 30-06.
Of course, I'm still a greenhorn in many ways and I'm sure you can give me lots of examples of others.
But yeah, the Europeans have cartridge naming down to a fine art.
