It compiles cartridge data from all major ammunition manufacturers such as Hornady, Nosler, Barnes, Swift, Norma, Sierra, Weatherby, Winchester, Remington, and Federal. It shows the optimal velocity achieved for each bullet weight and calculates bullet energy, recoil, and powder efficiency.
By using the data, discussions, and graphics presented in this manual, every reader can compare any cartridge against any other based on caliber, bullet weight, velocity, energy, recoil, or an other comparative factor. This book will enable every reader to better understand cartridge performance on any scale. The visual and technical comparisons empower any reader to select the best cartridge for their personal shooting requirements.
