Shooter's Bible Guide to Cartridges Reviews
You can find more, and better, information about individual cartridges online for free, if you know what cartridge you are interested in. Otherwise, a far better choice would be
This book is a 'fun' read - filled with color pictures and interesting facts about ammunition. Although it does have a cartridge dimension section in the back, so does wikipedia ... what I was hoping for was a cartridge interchangeability chart (which cartridges are interchangeable), and this book does not have such a chart. It seems to present the information in a rather random fashion, hence the 'fun' read vs. research review. It also lacks meaningful information about some popular rounds, such as the 30-06 and the 30-30 ... you get to learn about the patent violations that lead to the naming of the 30-06, but there is no page dedicated to this popular round... I 'like' the book, but it was purchased as a research tool and it doesn't quite fit that bill.
I'm 60. I was given my first gun at "about" age 4 or 5, and it was a Stevens Favorite in 25 rimfire. My father made it inactive by filing off the firing pin, but I had great fun hauling it around, acting like I was shooting/hunting, with a real gun. I did not fire a gun until I was 8 or 9 and it was a .270 off a bench rest. The rest of my years have me owning upwards of 50 guns - rifles, pistols & shotguns. I reload for all & cast bullets.
Very well written book and interesting to learn about the differences and development of different cartridges over the years and how new ones were developed. Also helps you pick the right caliber for what you're looking at doing with the weapon.
There's a ton of information in this book for someone like me who has a number of firearms but a very rudimentary knowledge of cartridges. Some of it was a bit too technical for my background, but I learned a lot now and the rest will be a good reference that I can use in conjunction with the Internet, if I need to.
Great book. Lots of information and very helpful! Well worth the price!
Although this work has merit to it, I prefer the other because of the greater detail in the historical context of cartridges. The section covering some of the definitions and explanitions of cartridge related lingo is useful to the novice, but I found the discussion of cartridges in related groups rather than individually, to be lacking. When I am ready for another book on this subject, I will go back to CARTRIDGES OF THE WORLD.
This book is packed with a lot of advanced detailed technical information. I'm sure that a lot of work went into it but it did not fulfill my needs. I was looking for something more elementary.
