    Default Please your Opinion about "African DG Cartridges "written by Pierre van der Walt

    Hello,
    I'm reading "African DG Cartridges" written by Pierre van der Walt. Is it a reliable book about use and efficiency of the cartridges?
    Do you know another book like this, except "Great African Caliber" by Tony Sanchez Arino ?
    Thanks a lot.

    African Rifles and Cartridges by John Taylor was pretty good reading.

    Besides the three books already mentioned, I recommend these two, which are primarily rifle books, but contain excellent information on cartridges.

    - Rifles for Africa, by Gregor Woods.

    - Dangerous game rifles, by Terry Wieland.

    Both can be ordered from Safari Press.

    I have Van der Walt's book. I find his opinions to be very well thought out and data-based.

    Between him and his mates, lots of experience to draw from.
