    This is post contest, but…
    I’m the wife of a ballistics expert. This wasn’t my original professional field, but I’ve been working in our ammo factory for >10 years now. (We manufacture and sell precision ammo throughout the country. We have patents on some of our products, and are used by snipers, serious hunters, etc.) Cartridges of the World is my “go to” book to be able to answer many of the questions that I don’t know, and have to answer. (I handle emails and phone calls.) It is the most valuable, fast resource I have, short of asking my hubby. I highly recommend this book.

    Sweeney is right. It is easy to become sloppy when reloading .45acp and .38spl. I admit that I am guilty of this. However, a mistake with a .45 tends not to be fatal, whereas a mistake with a .44Mag can be painful.

    I love collecting all the different cartridges. I am now building a display case for them all. This would make a great reference book to go with it.

    I would love a copy.

    Thank You

    Being on worker comp and awaiting another back surgery, having Cartridges of the World would be excellent reading material for myself to help kill time and get insight of various cartridges

    Reloading is a very pleasant and relaxing time for me. I have reloaded rifle and pistol metallic cartridges for longer than I care to remember. My first reloading experience was with a Lee Classic loader. I reloaded thousands of .38 Special and .357 Magnums with that loader. I have upgraded since then and have ended up with an RCBS Rock Chucker and a Dillon progressive. I reload for fifteen plus different cartridges and enjoy the solitary time I have during the process.

    I have friends I am coaching as they enter the world reloading.

    I would love to win a copy of Cartridges of the World. It is always beneficial to have as much information as possible when reloading.

    Thank you.

    Who can challenge Skinner on what’s best! A good resource for legitimate loading facts! I would love to have an updated copy! This book is not only good for what’s new and available in the US, but for ammo across the globe!

    Yes Please, I’d love a copy!
