The 200 or so spelling errors I have noted one can live with but I have noted at least 40 of substance and even occasions where the author contradicts himself. Given the error rate I feel I cannot rely on any of the text. A great pity. If the author wants my...

Given the error rate I feel I cannot rely on any of the text. A great pity. If the author wants my detailed comments to feed into a thoroughly revised and proof read 3rd edition I would gladly supply them.

This review is from: Understanding Firearm Ballistics: Basic to Advanced Ballistics, Simplified, Illustrated and Explained. (Paperback)
This new edition has been rewritern, additional charts, extra drawings and extra chapter has made this book a must for sportsman, hunters, target shooters, researchers and reloaders. For people with some basic knowledge of Firearms this book is the starting point to learning about Firearms Ballistics, from basic to advance levels. It is within the ability of almost anyone to understand the author Robert A. Rinker in his clear way of explaination. The book goes indepth e.g Primers,Powder & Gas Expansion/Gyroscpic Stability/Mathematics/Rifling-Twist/Velocity & Drag etc...(to many to list,but hopefully give's a general idea of area's the book cover's. I found it a pleasure to read and find it very useful as a reference guide still.
