Buffalo hunts, elephant hunts, and using enough gun. ~300 pages

$30 shipped.

Here are a couple excerpts:

“When solids are used for heart/lung shots on buffalo it is not atypical that more follow-up shots are required, meaning in many cases firing at a buffalo that is running off. If shooting at the backside of a buffalo, the greater penetration of a solid is needed to reach the heart and lungs. But if a soft bullet had been used for the heart/lung shot in the first place, the need for greater penetration for a lengthwise shot on now a retreating buffalo probably wouldn’t have been needed in the first place. And so the use of solids on buffalo, at least for the first shot, becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, in that if solids are used for the first shot, then more solids will be needed for follow-up shots. I had a heated argument with PH Owain Lewis in camp one day…”



“Suddenly, a heavy pounding of hooves, as the missing [Cape buffalo] bull instantly started into a full gallop, somewhere to the right….. Everyone was trying to spring into action. Luckily, the bull was more interested in getting lost in a hurry than in charging. It had been hiding behind some short grass and a scrubby little bush that looked like dwarfed sumac. How could a big buffalo bull hide in such sparse cover? The bull was now running full out to my left, parallel to our ragged in-line formation – it was broadside at only 30 feet. The tracker carrying my .375 shot first, but the bull didn’t flinch or miss a step. Then the apprentice PH chimed in with his .375, again with no apparent effect. By this time, my .470 was up and ready. It was like trying to get on a fleeing [pheasant] rooster. The shot from the right barrel looked good, but the 500-grain solid, like the two previous shots from the .375’s, had no apparent effect. The bull kept on hoofing it. I may have missed with the right barrel, but I didn’t think so, though the bull’s lack of response was not a good sign! The quick second shot from my left barrel – a soft point bullet – had an immediate effect. The bull dropped hard, hitting the ground with his nose first, and then doing a complete flip. That bull had been going at full speed. It now was on the ground, pointing in the direction from which it had started.
