This is just such a comprehensive text of ammunition of all sorts. The abundance of information is impressive. As a general reference that will probably have more info than you'll need this book is great. I recommend it definitely.

This book was very interesting and informative,very interesting just to compare different ammunitions and information not easily accessed in one book. needs to check their price on the third edition though$995.00 or something.

This was quite helpful in identifying a lot of loose ammo I received as a gift. I still have some not in this edition so I will have to find an encyclopedia on antique ammo to identify them. I know it is impossible to list every type and caliber in one edition but this is an excellent start.

This book is a waste of money. Full of errors and mistakes. One star is to high a rating but this site will not let me rate it any lower. The autor should not have bothered.Zac
