John Taylor Pondoro, le chasseur professionnel, à l'^âge d'or de la chasse africaine et Pierre Van Der Walt, le guide professionnel du monde moderne, vous détenez, grâce à ces deux hommes, la bible en matière de chasse africaine.
Tout chasseur digne de ce nom et pratiquant l'Afrique se doit de posséder cet ouvrage que je qualifierai de manuel technique de chasse africaine.

Pierre van der Walt is an Afrikaner who grew up hunting on a farm in South Africa. He fought in the Southern African bush wars leaving as a Captain in the South African Defense Force (SADF), eventually obtaining his lawyer's license. During his entire life, he has lived and breathed rifles and cartridges for big game hunting in Africa. He is past editor and founding member of the Southern African Big Bore Association, at one time was editor of the Safari Club International edition of their monthly Safari Times Africa newspaper, runs the annual AIMS Shooter Show that brings together hunters, game ranchers, shooters, dealers, gun makers (more gun makers per capita in South Africa than anywhere else in the World) as well as the sophisticated South African arms industry, and now runs a distribution house, Pathfinder Adventure Books, [...].

If you are a hunter living in Africa, one who is planning to hunt or who hunts Africa, or are dreaming of the day you will have the chance to hunt the wilds of Africa then this book is a must read.

It reviews the history of all the major African big game cartridges from British, mainland Europe, American, and key wildcat cartridges, detailing their ability to sort out different African game animals. He looks at strengths and weaknesses of various actions from doubles, and various bolt action types, as well as advises rifle weight by caliber in order to assure you can adequately recover from recoil for follow-up shots. He reviews various open and peep sights, as well as optics, recommending what is best depending on what game animal and the environment you plan on hunting (e.g., thick bush, open plains). He provides recommended reloading data for each caliber for major powder and bullet manufacturers in America, Europe, Australia & South Africa. He discusses in detail bullet types(e.g. expanding, solids), structure and form (e.g., round versus blunt nose), as well as their limitations so that you don't end up having your bullet blow up on an elephant or buffalo, or over-penetrate on a thin skinned game animal or wound a lion/leopard because of selecting the wrong caliber, bullet structure or load - putting your poor professional hunter and yourself in grave danger, as most African big game isn't dangerous until it is wounded so that first shot is what counts, and bullet structure is critical.

If you haven't read this book you are a missing out on the most authoritative work of its kind to have ever been printed. Get it now while they are available, it is written by an African whose family has been in Africa for 100s of years!

By Andre DeGeorges who spent a good part of 30 years hunting, diving, fishing and exploring Africa from the plains of the Rift Valley to the dense lowland forests of the Congo Basin to the savannahs of West Africa. This is the book you must have if you are involved in or thinking of getting involved in hunting Africa. Pierre, a friend and a brother, is the only author on this subject with the in-depth knowledge, insight and firsthand experience (no theory here - he has hunted it all) who has been able to put together the magnum opus on the subject of African Dangerous Game Cartridges. This will be your African dangerous game hunting Bible!!

A complete review of African game cartridges with experienced based suggestions for use. Extensive history, technical info and application suggestions are included with every cartridge I've ever heard of and some I never heard of much less experienced. Get this book for the value of the authors experience alone and it's worth the purchase. Add in the tech specs, recommendations and personal experiences of the author and his friends and you have a real gem for the top shelf of your library. I will also use the suggestions and recommendations for my large cartridge re-loading. A must book for enjoyment, understanding, reloading and use of your African dangerous game cartridge and rifle.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good information supported by practical field experience. 15 avril 2014

Good information on medium and large bore rifle cartridges (9.3 mm and up). A good source of info on dangerious game bullets, handloading, and recoil management. The author backs up the information with field experience and other noted experts/professional hunters adding credibility. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is it could use a good editing for puncuation and typgraphical errors.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book!! 3 août 2013
Par Oivinn Sandvold - Publié sur

Great book about the african dangerous game cartridges, and reloading and ballistics in general! I'm interested in big bore cartridges, but the book is a great read for those not hunting dangerous game also. Packed with good stories and anekdotes. Mr Walt shows remarkable knowledge about both the hunting of dangerous game and the rifles/cartridges used to hint them.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sensible reasoning from an experienced hunter 25 juin 2014

Very well written book, facts backed by actual tests and results. Reasoning done based on facts and field testing. I feel the information given through this book has good value and applicable to hunting elsewhere than in Africa as well.
