Mike Venturino's book, Shooting Buffalo Rifles of the Old West, has become a standard reference for these fascinating firearms. Mike has a unique talent for including interesting and intriguing details on the subject about which he is writing. In this book, he not only shares his knowledge of the 1870's vintage single shot rifles, but also includes information on calibers, loading data, how to develop competition quality ammunition, in-depth information on paper patching, modern hunting with black powder cartridge rifles, bison hunting, sighting equipment and the buffalo hunters of old. The chapter on paper patching alone is worth the price of the book. Former Black Powder Cartridge National Champions and Long Range Target National Champions Steve Brooks, Steve Garbe, Dave Gullo, Butch Ulsher, and Dave Gruhler provide detailed information on how they develop accurate ammunition. Shooting Buffalo Rifles of the Old West includes over 288 pages of black and white photographs.
