Gone are the days of simple-solid and softpoint-bullets for a mere dozen-and-a-half African calibers. The sheer number of products on the market today staggers the mind and bewilders even experienced hunters. Boddington presents his information in clearly explained, bite-size pieces that we can digest, and in the process he gives us a solid understanding of what works and what doesn't. Many writers proclaim their knowledge of African hunting, but few have the true in-depth experience that comes from thousands of days afield. Boddington's Safari Rifles II is a rare gem of a book, offering solid information based on vast experience and insight gathered over the last thirty years of hunting on the Dark Continent.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Useful Revision of a Useful Book 19. Februar 2010
Von David L. Staples - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
I have many of Col. Boddington's books, including the original (1990) edition of Safari Rifles. That book has always been enjoyable and informative but, like any reference in an ever-changing field, came to need updating in several areas. Without leaving anything behind, the "2" edition accomplishes this goal, especially in accounting for recent advances in hunting bullet technology and the effect of these improvements on the hunter's choice of cartridges for his game. Also, along with notes about many new chamberings which did not exist when the original edition was published, an interesting modern addition is a discussion of the revived availability and economics of double rifles and their ammunition, formerly so rare as to be collectors' items in many cases. And as in the earlier edition, one of Boddington's most unusual and entertaining inclusions is his survey of modern professional hunters as to their opinions regarding the best equipment for incoming clients. The "2" edition contains both his 1989 survey results and updates as of 2007, allowing one to see how the professionals' impressions have evolved over the course of two decades of equipment advance and changes to habit and game availability.

As to style, Boddington is no O'Connor or Cooper, and his prose, doubtless by long editorial enforcement, smacks of "gun magazine," but he is nevertheless clear and pleasant in his delivery.

On a personal note, I have the honor of a hunting acquaintance with Ross Seyfried, longtime gun writer and expert on hunting generally and African heavy rifles in particular. Evidently a gentlemanly war of words simmers between these two authors. Regarding Col. Boddington's mention (page 105) of a heated disagreement with Ross over Hornady's reintroduction of a (not "the").450/.400 double rifle cartridge, all I can say is...yes, there are two sides to it!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A must have resource for anyone who hopes to hunt Africa "someday." 23. Mai 2011
Von Hizzie - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
Boddington goes on to give his opinion of various rifles and calibers for hunting the vast species of African game from his many years of safari experience. He further provides survey results from Professional Hunters (PH's) who make their living guiding hunters in this unforgiving land. A very enjoyable read but don't expect Boddington to solve the CRF vs. PF debate, magazine rifle vs. double rifle debate or big bore vs. small bore debate. You will however be better informed to make your own decisions on what rifle/caliber is best suited to your hunt. And the photo's are outstanding with few exceptions.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Little of Everything 9. Februar 2011
Von Pierre J. Van Walt - Veröffentlicht auf
The book itself is a quality 593-page full colour hard cover, originally with a durable dust jacket. The paper is a bit glossy which interferes with reading but the font is eminently readable and the line spacing very convenient. It is profusely illustrated with very good resolution photos of the author and his trophies.
It covers most popular cartridges from .17 to the big bores. Part 2 is a historical perspective and modern context summary of both double and bolt action rifles touching on the usual issues of extractors, double versus magazine, sights and the like. The third section focuses on African game while the final section wraps up with one-, two- and three battery safaris as well as a survey of rifles used by African professional over the ages.
It does not offer any revelations. Consequently it is a great book for the reader interested in the general picture rather than detail. Everything is touched upon lightly and the new safari hunter will get a good but very broad idea of how things interact. I find the inclusion of .17 and .22 cartridges as big game cartridges (illegal for hunting in most of Africa) peculiar under the Big-Game Cartridges heading on a book focused on African hunting, especially since Part 3 distinguishes between light (small game in African parlance) and other sizes of plains game.
Other reviewers commented on the author's style, but I find him eminently readable. His questioning of flat-nosed solid performance in the face of an extensive body of field evidence and some other views expressed raised the questions as to his objectivity, but to my mind every expert such as Mr. Boddington is entitled to punt his views. This need-to-know topic book is a recommended quality summary of known wisdoms.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Book, Updated and Revised 16. Dezember 2009
Von Stephen W. Templar - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
Craig Boddington has outdone himself with this update to Safari Rifles. This is one of the best books ever written on the subject.

This new updated version of Safari Rifles has improved the book considerably. The modern updated information is a welcome addition and is very helpful.

I recommend this book to all big bore fans, dangerous game rifle aficionados, and to safari hunters. For further reading on dangerous game rifles and safari rifles I also recommend Dangerous Game Rifles by Terri Wieland Dangerous-Game Rifles, 2nd Edition as well as (if you can forgive my slight bias) my own book, rexGun by Stephen Templar Rexgun.

Good reading, good shooting and good hunting.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Safari Rifles II 28. März 2014
Von Paul L. Cross - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
SAFARI RIFLES !! by Craig Boddington and his Safari Rifles are very much a mixed bag. On one side he offers information unobtainable elsewhere. Such as the professional survey of what to bring for rifles and ammunition, results of bullet use, etc. It is HIGHLY recommended for any hunters library. Now the down side. Boddington is a big bore fanatic of the worst kind. He has fired so many hard recoiling rifles it has apparently damaged his life badly. His eccentric writing may be from the effects of heavy recoil on his brain from the continuous concussions. Nearing the end of his writing career It reportedly runs from a broken shoulder to a heart attack over the years. It is like an addict..He must use the biggest rifle available! He is also quite jealous of Jack O'Connor and Warren Page, as you will see. He was actually promoted to a general in the Marine corps., I am not sure what that says about one or the other. If you can remember there is nothing that cannot be killed quite neatly by a .375 H&H in Africa it is a fine book.
