Shooter's Bible Guide to Firearms Assembly, Disassembly, and Cleaning.

The Shooter’s Bible name has been known and trusted as an authority on guns and ammunition for nearly a century and has sold . Now the Shooter’s Bible offers readers this comprehensive and fascinating guide to cartridges.

The Shooter’s Bible name has been known and trusted as an authority on guns and ammunition for nearly a century and has sold over seven million copies since its start. Complete with color and black and white photographs showcasing various makes and models of firearms and equipment, this guide to cartridges is the perfect addition to the bookshelf of any beginner or experienced hunter, firearm collector, or gun enthusiast. No matter what your shooting background is, you’ll learn something new.

The Shooters’ Bible Guide to Cartridges is not the only ammo book in print. It’s not even the only one on my reference shelf. Actually, it is only one of about six. Its closest competitor is another book called Cartridges of the World. Both of these books overlap in the information they provide, but I find them to be complementary more than competitors. Guide to Cartridges focuses on the popular cartridges, the ones that most people will be interested in, and not obscure or long-obsolete rounds of which few people have any care. The book looks good, feels good and reads very well.

You can find more, and better, information about individual cartridges online for free, if you know what cartridge you are interested in. Otherwise, a far better choice would be Cartridges of the World: 10th Edition, Revised and Expanded, which provides excellent information on current and outdated rifle and handgun cartridges, however it does not have anything on the slew of new short and ultra short rifle cartridges which have recently come on the market. In any case, you can research those online, and it would be wise to question how long any of these will stay in production; you don't want to get stuck with a rifle that requires ammunition that is no longer available, or that you can't find locally when you are off somewhere hunting. As far as I can see, this book only gives you extremely brief, superficial information on each cartridge, and for someone new to the shooting sports, maybe it would provide for a starting point for further research, but I'm certain that years from now you will come to realize that most of what's out there on guns and cartridges is baloney aimed strictly at marketing and selling. The most significant change in ammunition in recent years is the technological advances made in bullets (the actual projectile of the cartridge), which has increased the effeciency and lethality of ammunition, and learning something about bullets is well worth the effort. I have recommended and earlier edition of Cartridges Of The World because I actually own it and have read it to a dog-eared state, and I have noted some complaints of the newest edition. I also noted that Guide To Cartridges failed to warn the reader of the importance of recoil with many of the magnum calibers, which should always be considered before deciding on a big game rifle. Conventional wisdom through the years has demonstrated that a .30-06 is about all the recoil most people can tolerate, and the .300 Winchester Magnum caliber and greater are distinctly unpleasant, or even painful, so I believe it is important for a book to educate the reader regarding the "shootability" of a cartridge for the individual, because after all, what good is a great and powerful cartridge if you can't shoot it well? How often you shoot also has a lot to do with how much recoil you can comfortably tolerate (to an extent, of course), so actually shooting a caliber before spending your money is a good idea. Maybe a friend can take you shooting, or find a range that offers instruction and can rent you a rifle to try out, to see if it suits you. As far as handgun cartridges go, you may find that bigger is not always better, and revolvers are easier to shoot than semi-automatics, and again, find a range that will rent you a handgun to shoot and try a few to get a feeling for what is best for you.

This book is a 'fun' read - filled with color pictures and interesting facts about ammunition. Although it does have a cartridge dimension section in the back, so does wikipedia ... what I was hoping for was a cartridge interchangeability chart (which cartridges are interchangeable), and this book does not have such a chart. It seems to present the information in a rather random fashion, hence the 'fun' read vs. research review. It also lacks meaningful information about some popular rounds, such as the 30-06 and the 30-30 ... you get to learn about the patent violations that lead to the naming of the 30-06, but there is no page dedicated to this popular round... I 'like' the book, but it was purchased as a research tool and it doesn't quite fit that bill.

I'm 60. I was given my first gun at "about" age 4 or 5, and it was a Stevens Favorite in 25 rimfire. My father made it inactive by filing off the firing pin, but I had great fun hauling it around, acting like I was shooting/hunting, with a real gun. I did not fire a gun until I was 8 or 9 and it was a .270 off a bench rest. The rest of my years have me owning upwards of 50 guns - rifles, pistols & shotguns. I reload for all & cast bullets.

The point of my rambling, is that in spite of being around guns virtually my entire life, and seeing so much literature, new and old, it is refreshing to come across a book like this that I find thoroughly enjoyable.

The book is of very high quality print, with glossy stock for print and pictures alike. The content is arranged by similar qualities of the cartridges and gives an excellent description of the pedigree of each. The content is also extremely accurate, which is very important for safety reasons.

I would whole heartedly recommend the purchase of this book for anyone with just a passing interest in firearms & cartridges, up to those who approach expert status. It would make an excellent companion to "Cartridges of the World", or even to a book like Ken Water's "Pet Loads". It would be an excellent addition for novices just taking up reloading, along with books like one of the Lyman reloading manuals and one of the "ABC's of Reloading". It would pair nicely with any book on hunting, giving the reader an understanding of the ability of various cartridges.

Simply, it belongs on the shelf of anyone at all interested in not just shooting a gun, but also understanding the mechanics of what is being fired.

Very well written book and interesting to learn about the differences and development of different cartridges over the years and how new ones were developed. Also helps you pick the right caliber for what you're looking at doing with the weapon.

There's a ton of information in this book for someone like me who has a number of firearms but a very rudimentary knowledge of cartridges. Some of it was a bit too technical for my background, but I learned a lot now and the rest will be a good reference that I can use in conjunction with the Internet, if I need to.

Expected more, especially about lesser know cartridges.

Bought this for my future hobby, a great value in educating yourself.
Although this work has merit to it, I prefer the other because of the greater detail in the historical context of cartridges. The section covering some of the definitions and explanitions of cartridge related lingo is useful to the novice, but I found the discussion of cartridges in related groups rather than individually, to be lacking. When I am ready for another book on this subject, I will go back to CARTRIDGES OF THE WORLD.
