Five: Select strong, heavy bullets. If you have a .30/06, use nothing lighter than 180-grain slugs. I have, for years, handloaded 200-grainers in my '06 for Africa, and they work sensationally. There are umpteen bullets on the market, but regardless of what you're hunting you want the tough ones. I will say flatly that the Swift A-Frame is the best expanding African bullet made. There may be something as good out there, but I can guarantee you there's nothing better. Hornady solids have always worked perfectly, and I recommend them as well.
