Dangerous Game Rifles Second Edition
Manufacturer part number: 978-0-89272-807-7
Though few hunters actually make the trip to Africa in pursuit of the big five, elephant, rhino, leopard, lion, and Cape buffalo, the popularity of rifles designed to take such dangerous big game has never been greater. Legendary gunmakers such as Purdey, Rigby, and Holland & Holland can’t keep up with the demand for their fine rifles. Terry Wieland, a widely recognized firearms expert and veteran of many safaris, explores in detail the rifles and calibers that are drawing attention. This revised and expanded second edition covers what has changed in the field since the first edition was published in 2006—new calibers, new cartridges, new guns, new actions—and includes all-new material on action and barrel manufacture, tracing the production of a fine custom-made big-bore rifle. 440pp.
