When African Dangerous Game Cartridges was first published in 2011 it was a runaway success. The entire print-run sold out within three months and it replaced Pondoro Taylor’s classic African Rifles & Cartridges as the definitive tome on the topic. Stock on the second print-run is also running low, with only Outdoor Visions in the USA still having a few.
Starting at the 9,3x62mm Mauser and ending at the mighty 600 Nitro Express, this new classic covers the 48 most popular African dangerous game cartridges. Each cartridge is dealt with in greater detail than had ever been done before and covers its history, specifications, velocity parameters, characteristics, performance, optics, sighting, handloading tips and data. About 2,500 loads with Accurate, Alliant, IMR, Hodgdon, ADI-Mulwex, Lovex, Norma, Ramshot, Rottweil, Somchem, Vectan-Tubal, Vihtavuori, Winchester are provided, making this book not only the greatest historical, technical and practical reference work on big bore cartridges ever published, but also the most extensive big bore reloading manual ever! The first 133 pages of the book is unique. Topics such as double and bolt action rifle features, recoil and comfortable shooting mass, dangerous game optics and bullet terminal behaviour are expertly discussed and explained.
