In 1990 Craig Boddington and Safari Press launched what proved to be one of the most popular and enduring books on rifles and calibers for Africa ever written, going through no less than twelve printings. To write an in-depth book about a complex matter, one needs experience. When Craig Boddington wrote Safari Rifles in 1989, he had experience, but today his name has become synonymous with African big-game hunting. Added to his vast experience is the exponential increase in the number of rifles, calibers, bullets, and accessories that are available to the hunter going on a big-game safari in Africa today—not to mention the amazing resurgence of both double rifles and .416s. Given these factors, it was imperative to completely revise and update Safari Rifles and to include all new photos.
