Gone are the days of simple-solid and softpoint-bullets for a mere dozen-and-a-half African calibers. The sheer number of products on the market today staggers the mind and bewilders even experienced hunters. Boddington presents his information in clearly explained, bite-size pieces that we can digest, and in the process he gives us a solid understanding of what works and what doesn't. By the time you finish this book, you will be thoroughly prepared for your next safari. Is the .375 H&H really the ultimate caliber for all dangerous game safaris? Can you shoot African big game with tiny calibers like the .17 HMR and the .22 Hornet? What sights are really ideal for big-bore rifles? Is a single shot a responsible choice for dangerous game? Do "deer calibers" such as the .30-06 and the .270 function in a wild and dangerous Africa? Many writers proclaim their knowledge of African hunting, but few have the true in-depth experience that comes from thousands of days afield. Boddington's Safari Rifles II is a rare gem of a book, offering solid information based on vast experience and insight gathered over the last thirty years of hunting on the Dark Continent.
