A medium calibre bolt-action rifle such as a .30-06 or .300 Win Mag
is suitable for most plains game and leopard. Large antelope such as
eland require a minimum calibre of .338. If dangerous game is to be
hunted, a .375 H&H Magnum or larger is recommended. Use only the
best premium grade bullets available such as Nosler, Barnes or Trophy
Bonded. Solids are recommended for thick-skinned animals such as buffalo
and elephant. Sixty rounds per calibre is suggested. It is wise to practice
your shooting well before the safari so that you are totally comfortable
with your rifle/s and ammunition.
