    Book: Rifles for Africa

    Rifles for Africa by Gregor Woods

    2nd Edition (1st Trade edition); 430 Pages including tables, photos, etc.

    Excellent condition

    One of the best books ever on rifles, cartridges, ballistics etc, for an african safari. Even better since it is written by a South African (not a visiting American) with more than 40 years of experience hunting in Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Namibia, Botswana, and South Africa. Gregor Woods has been the rifles editor for South Africa’s Magnum magazine since 1988.

    Provides advice and information on what rifles, calibres and bullets work on African game. Woods prefers items that function rather than items that are just expensive, and he covers what he considers minimum standards for bullet performances, sights and rifle functioning.

    Practical advice on rifles and ammunition for an African Safari.

    Gregor Woods has shot game with everything from small centrefire .22 calibres right up to some of the most powerful cartridges available. In this milestone book, he gives the reader his experiences and conclusions based on 40 years of hunting most of the game animals of the Dark Continent.

    Based in Durban, South Africa, he is the shooting editor for Magnum magazine and has made dozens of safaris to the classic African game fields--Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Namibia, Botswana, and, South Africa--were he has had numerous experiences with dangerous game as well as with dozens of varieties of antelope.

    The book gives invaluable information on what rifles, calibres, and bullets work on African big game, be they the largest land mammals on earth or an antelope barely weighing in at 20 pounds.

    An excellent reference.
