Book Description

26 Oct 2012 Cartridges of the World

The Essential Guide to Ammunition from Around the World!

Every serious firearms enthusiast, cartridge collector and handloader will benefit from our completely revised and updated Cartridges of the World, 13th Edition, most widely read cartridge reference book of its kind on the subject. From the latest introductions in commercial cartridges and wildcats, to the fresh, authoritative articles on current ammunition trends, this book contains everything the active cartridge collector and firearms enthusiast needs to know.

With 55 new cartridges spanning the gamut of industry leading factory loads to the wildcat developments on the cusp of being the next "big thing," Cartridges of the World, 13th Edition is the most comprehensive reference source of its kind, and a must-have for every firearms owner, novice to expert.

Inside you'll find:

  • The most exhaustive & authoritative cartridge reference in print
  • 55 all-new factory manufactured and wildcat cartridge listings, complete with technical drawings
  • Updated resource information throughout
  • Fully updated specifications and references
  • Free CD includes a collection of odd and obsolete cartridges
  • Essays by three of the industries leading writers with crucial, "state of the union" information on SAAMI, wildcatting, and today's hottest trend, rounds for AR15 platforms
Gun Digest has been publishing the Cartridges of the World since 1965, and during that span we've seen a lot of cartridges come and go. While this newest and most comprehensive 13th Edition, just like its predecessors, contains information on many rounds that are no longer in production, we made room for new rounds by compiling data on the esoteric, odd, and truly obsolete and moving them to this bonus CD. Best of all, the CD is FREE! with your purchase of this completely updated volume.

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't get it for Kindle 8 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Classic reference work which when I update saw was available for Kindle. Great, says I and bought it. The big snag is that I don't get the CD with all the rest of the information. Now I would have thought it easy enough to give me a download link, but I don't see one anywhere. Hence three stars, as otherwise it would have been five.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference book 2 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Useful for anyone involved in the shooting industry, or just interested in ballistics. The book itself was a terrible mess. Something obviously went wrong with the trimming process, as the pages were of differing widths. Not too bothered, as I'll be using it purely for reference at the office.

When considering a new rifle this is a very good reference for all the available calibres and this book gives not just the technical information but history as well. Worth the investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nerd's reference. 10 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a standard tome for gun enthusiasts. A quick thumb through will help even a novice make sensible choices of calibre. Opinionated but not controversial, and very informative, this is a must for centre fire shooters of all disciplines.
