If you ever want to create an interesting discussion between hunters just ask the question: “Which is the best rifle and calibre for hunting in New Zealand?”
There are as many types of firearms users as there are licence holders, meaning everyone comes to shooting for their own reasons. The pure hunter will have a favourite rifle, one that he has had for many lucky experiences, and it will be the hunt that he lives for. The successful hunting trips experienced over the years gather in the mind to become a positive reinforcement on his firearms choice.
So opinions will differ and the discussion is sure to last for many hours. In this book James Passmore examines the history and development of our hunting preferences, looks at the current situation and compares some of the most popular hunting rifles available both new and second hand. Whether you agree or disagree with him; it makes for compelling reading and a valuable resource.
