what an iteresting book. goe's in depth on small calibre/high velocity rounds. small calibres, are always the best, as heavy calibres, such as .30cal are that bit slower, delivering a higher arc of trajectory, and a higher yaw.
smaller calibres,such as .270 are that bit more flatter in trajectory with a higher velocity, compared to the higher .30cal.
the author explains quite a bit about all this, and more. all in all a very interesting book, on ballistics.and a cracking good read. if your interestind in ballistics, then this book is for you.

I bought this book because I had a sudden interest in bullet ballistics, and though this is a good informative book there are too many photographs for my liking of animal kills. Now I know in some parts of the world you can still hunt with a rifle, but to see the trophies of dead deer, bears, wild boar etc I think spoilt it to a degree.
