Rifles for Africa by Gregor Woods
2nd Edition (1st Trade edition); 430 Pages including tables, photos, etc.
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.
