Big Game Hunting Podcast

Jul 7, 2022

Kevin Robertson is back again to talk about hunting Africa with lever action rifles. While lever-action rifles are great for some applications, they're not great for others and, for various reasons, they've never really caught on with the general hunting community in Africa. We talk about why that's the case, the pros and cons of lever action rifles, the situations they're best suited for, and which cartridges meet the minimum requirements for hunting plains and dangerous game in Africa.

Show Sponsor: Be sure to sign up for my email list at You’ll get my free E-book when you do so and you’ll also receive the email updates I send out every weekday. If you like The Big Game Hunting Podcast you’ll love those emails. I talk about all sorts of things in my emails: cartridge and bullet selection, hunting in Africa, funny hunting stories, etc. I also send an in stock email update every Friday to everyone on the list with some of the latest news on ammo I've found and where you can get it.

I highly recommend purchasing a copy of It Shouldn't Happen and The Perfect Shot II. If you have an upcoming hunt or if you just want to learn more about game in Africa and want a great "all in one" reference, you will not be disappointed with either book. Go to to get copies of each one.
