What was the best military rifle cartridge in WW2?

Forgotten Weapons is one of the most authoritative sources on Youtube that I've found.

Ian addresses the best rifle cartridge of WW2 and why in this video. I will say, he didn't choose mine, and after watching and thinking about it, I see his point. It hasn't changed my "wish list," but that's all such a list is for me anymore, anyway. So give it a try and see where Ian ranks yours. Maybe you'll agree with him, and maybe you won't, but it's a fun and learning video:



Any other viewpoints?
And even in Atlantis of the legend
The night the seas rushed in,
The drowning men still bellowed for their slaves.

My top 2 Military Surplus Rifle to own within the Indian law,
1.Mauser K98k (Karabiner 98 Kurz) chambered for the 7.92X57 mm Mauser Cartridge.
(Ammo may not be easily available)
2.1903 Springfield in 30.06.
The Mauser Bolt was incorporated into the Springfield Rifle.

Regards,
Jr.
