More Information
New edition also traces the production of a fine, custom-made, big-bore rifle.

Though few hunters actually make the trip to Africa in pursuit of "The Big Five" - elephant, rhino, leopard, lion, & Cape buffalo - the popularity of rifles designed to take such dangerous big game has burgeoned in recent years. Legendary gunmakers such as Purdey, Rigby, & Holland & Holland can't keep up with the demand for their fine double rifles, and several of Europe's top shot-gun manufacturers have started producing designs of their own. Nor is the bolt action being neglected, as such heavyweight calibers as the .458 Winchester & the massive .460 Weatherby magnum continue to attract buyers.

Here, the author, a widely recognized firearms expert & the veteran of many safaris, explores in detail the rifles & calibers that are drawing attention from big-bore aficionados.
