  • Suggested Rifles and Calibers
    plains game bring a rifle that you are completely familiar with and comfortable shooting In other words your favorite white tail deer rifle with the right bullets will within reason be adequate for most anything on the plains As a guide while lesser calibers will suffice on the smaller antelope the 270 Winchester should be considered the minimum for most medium sized plains game species With the proper premium grade bullets and good shot placement the 270 is fully capable of taking many of the larger plains dwellers In addition to the 270 the rifle calibers most often brought to Africa by clients include in no particular order the various 7mm s to include the 7mm Mag 7mm Ultra Mag and even the 7x57mm Mauser the 30 06 Springfield is extremely popular and has long been a favorite of hunters around the globe The 300 Win Mag is an excellent all around choice especially if your safari will take you to areas where long shots may be necessary If larger and tougher game like Eland Roan or Zebra to name a few are on the menu think about the 338 Winchester Magnum a favorite of North American Moose and Grizzly hunters The above mentioned calibers are merely examples and should in no way be construed as recommendations BRING A RIFLE THAT YOU SHOOT WELL AND ARE THOROUGHLY FAMILIAR AND COMFORTABLE WITH A word about bullets As a general rule premium quality heavy for caliber bullets are your best choice Many fine bullets are on the market today the Nosler Partition the Swift A Frame Woodleigh Weldcore Barnes X Triple Shock and the South African Rhino just to name a few Many of these fine bullets are available in factory loaded ammunition and can also be hand loaded if you possess those skills African game seems to be a bit tougher than game found elsewhere in the world Perhaps this is due to evolution and the extensive predation to which they are subjected so don t skimp on ammunition If you take nothing else away from this discussion READ AND BELIEVE THIS You can bring the finest rifles to Africa in just the right caliber with the perfectly matched heavy for caliber premium quality bullets and all will be for nothing if your shots are not placed correctly SHOT PLACEMENT is the most important single aspect of any discussion regarding hunting with a rifle Put in its most simple terms It s not what you shoot him with but where you shoot him that matters the most A badly placed shot with even the largest of rifles and the finest bullets available will result at best in a very long day of tracking and at worst a lost trophy The lose of a fine trophy can be a big disappointment but in case you haven t heard if you make it bleed you pay for it Enough about that Your Professional Hunter will guide you in this matter trust his judgment
