Chiaramente si tratta di un testo superato in diverse parti ma utilissimo ancora oggi.
Ho acquistato per errore sia la versione in brossura che rilegata, diciamo che quest ultima ha una stampa meno nitida ma sempre leggibile anche se il libro pi elegante.
I wont wast your time read all the other 5star reviews I concur P.
O was a very wise man Wise from years of DOING Theres alot of gun writers out there that get pretty windy But, this guy walked the walk.
As far as how the book is written, to me it was very easy to read He doesnt add a string of over the top, rarely used, adjectives that turn into a complete sidetrack of the technical data you were trying to derive in the first place.
Its simple and to the point How I write, and how I like to learn.
It was not exactly what I had expected The book as far as I have read, which is a little over half has good information for the shooter and some for the handloader I originally thought since Parker Ackley was the author it would have an explanation of his Ackley Improved cases so popular with handloaders I have yet to see any discussion on the subject But what I have read is the very best in advice and use.
I would like to update my review Having now read most of the book, and having read the articles, chapters, by P.
O Ackley I than ever recommend this book I wish the volume 2 was available in Kindle I also know why there is no discussion on P.
O Ackley s methods on improving cartridges He gave us the reasons and some of the changes through his selection of authors included in his book, but he also was selling rifles, ammo, and working in his own gunsmith shop as well as teaching gunsmithing Which only adds to his credibility and explains why he doesn t explain his methods With the information given it will not be hard to come up with your own method and your own wildcat.
Great resource for handloading as well as general firearms hunting knowledge I use it regularly to research cartridges There is a great deal of info pertaining to which cartridges tend to be the most efficient.
I had heard so much about this book that I had to have it It is like a trip to the past when rifles and shooting were experimental I bought this book because I was interested in having a rifle modified into a Ackley Improved, but the book has much information about shooting and reloading An essential book for people that love shooting.
Good book has good info in it.
