How to Hunt The Big Five Dangerous Game in Africa
Guns and Ammunition for Leopard, Elephant, or Lion Hunting
By law, a rifle of .375 caliber is the minimum for thick-skinned dangerous game animals such as elephant, buffalo, and hippo. The .375 H&H is an excellent all-around choice for a buffalo and plainsgame hunt. For a dedicated dangerous game hunt, one of the .416’s is a good choice. Light calibers from .270 to .338 are sufficient for plainsgame. We recommend heavy for caliber premium bullets from manufacturers like Nosler, Barnes, Swift or Woodleigh. A good quality scope is essential, especially on your light rifle. Lion and leopard are generally shot in poor light and require a scope that transmits maximum light.
