And if shooting, ammunition and reloading are hobbies for you, you may also be interested in the Cartridge Comparison Guide. This spiral-bound (lies flat on the bench!), 220-page volume compares every factory available cartridge from 17 to 50 caliber for both rifles and handguns. It is divided into four major sections.
The first details a step by step process to help you better understand your shooting environment and personal requirements.

The third section provides 14 discussion sections detailing proper cartridge and bullet selection based on the game animal, bullet construction, desired wound-channel, shooting distance, hunting environment, and much more.
Finally, the fourth section provides quick reference ballistic charts which detail trajectory, velocity and energy out to 500 yards for bullet weights of 20 to 750 grains.
