Kevin Robertson is back again to talk about the “classic” Africa hunting cartridges today. We cover the pros, cons, and recommended uses for almost everything from the 243 Winchester all the way up to the 600 and 700 Nitro Express in this episode. Among other things, we talk about how hunting in Africa is different from hunting in north America, the unique characteristics of some of the most popular species of game in Africa, and how those things dictate ideal ballistic performance for the situation.
Be sure to sign up for my email list at huntingguns101.com. You’ll get my free E-book when you do so and you’ll also receive the email updates I send out every weekday. If you like The Big Game Hunting Podcast you’ll love those emails. I talk about all sorts of things in my emails: cartridge and bullet selection, hunting in Africa, funny hunting stories, etc. I also send an in-stock ammo email update every Friday to everyone on the list with some of the latest news on ammo I’ve found and where you can get it.
Show sponsor: I highly recommend purchasing a copy of It Shouldn’t Happen and The Perfect Shot II. If you have an upcoming hunt or if you just want to learn more about game in Africa and want a great “all in one” reference, you will not be disappointed with either book. Go to thebiggamehuntingblog.com/kevin to get copies of each one.
