Review: Understanding Ballistics

This is one of those books that offers  essentially whatever you’d like to extract from it. It clearly answers the question,  “How much recoil would be generated, by a 50 BMG round necked down to .338, and  stuffed with a 300 grain Sierra Match bullet ?” However, it will also help you to  select a…

Review: Cartridges of the World, 8th Edition – Real Guns Book Review

Cartridges of the World is one of those  books that ends up with bent corners and coffee stains on the pages, it gets used a lot.  It’s an excellent reference work. There may be some obscure cartridges that are missed,  but considering it covers 6mm shot shells, the 5.5mm Velo Dog and the 2.7mm Kolibri,…
